Upload an ics file

Is there a way to upload an ics file? I'd like our readers to be able to click on a button entitled "Save the Date", which would then download an ics file for them to add to their calendar.  I have not been able to determine how to do this. Is it possible? (I do not want to create an event. This would just be in an e-mail).

Thanks, Stephanie

Re: Upload an ics file

Hi @LSN

Thanks for bringing your question to the community! At this time, our library only allows images and documents to be uploaded. Other customers have requested the ability to add Calendar links to their emails, so I've opened up a support case and tracked your interest. If we receive enough traction on this request, our engineers will look into implementing this feature and you will receive a notification. If you have any other questions or suggestions, please let us know!

I agree! We need to be able to let people download an .ics file for calendar notices/reminders.

 

Thank you for your attention here.

Re: Upload an ics file

But it shows up in the tutorial. How does it not work then?

Hello @EpicIS,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us.  We saw your other post on the matter, but I wanted to make sure we replied to you here as well.  We have updated the process for the RSVP block and the add to calendar link will no longer appear on the Thank You page.  Contacts will need to manually add the time and date to their own calendars when using an RSVP block.  We are absolutely collecting feedback and I will be glad to pass this along to the appropriate teams for review.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

Re: Upload an ics file

I just got off the phone with customer support that said I can create my own ICS file. 

So which is it?

Re: Upload an ics file

Hello @EpicIS,

 

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.
