Creating Add to Calendar Links
To create Add to Calendar links, you will need to use a third party site such as AddEvent. Through this service, you will be able to create calendar event links to include in the body of an email message to send out from the Platform.
If your event has multiple sessions, you will need to repeat the following steps for each individual session in order to create a unique calendar event link for the specific dates/times the event is taking place.
