Thanks for getting back to us. I apologize for any confusion. You would have to create and host the .ics file outside of Constant Contact. You could then create a link to the location of the hosted file's URL and place that link in the body of the email.
I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you, and we completely understand why you would want this. I would be more than happy to submit your feedback to our engineers for review. Thank you for letting us know and I hope you have a wonderful day.
Since there is no way to upload an ics file is there a way to use the ics file html in constant contact to use ?
It's great to see you in the Community! I'm glad you asked this question as I'm sure other customers have this question too!
The work-around would be that you could host the .ics file on the internet externally from Constant Contact and then you would simply use the public link for the file and you could link any text, pictures or buttons in your email campaings to the .ics file that way.
Hope this helps!
I feel like this has been an issue for several years now. I saw another post asking about calendar appointments dating back to 2012.
The real work around is probably to use a different service for this kind of email.
