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.

I'd like to chime in. I see the dates on this thread as 2018. Today Sept 16 2019 I'm trying to find a solution to the same problem. It does not appear this issue has been implemented?
This means I am unable to provide a link to an ical event to the workshop I'm promoting for $400/person. What's the hold up?
Thank you for reaching out to the Community with your feedback on this feature. You are correct, this feature is not available. I apologize for any inconvenience caused from not having this feature. I can however see you add links to events hosted on Eventbrite. Though ICS functionality is not available through Constant Contact directly, it is functionality you can add to your Eventbrite registration flow. Have you tried our EventBrite action block? Through this block users can click the "Register" button to go to EventBrite's site, and click the "Add to Calendar" option there. You can also continue to create an ICS link outside of our system and including this link in your emails as you do with the ICS link for Gmail.
Thank you for your feedback! We also suggest you submit your feedback to our Help Center so our engineering team can review that as well!
Thank you and have a great day!
