Create *.ics and *.ical files

Clay — Mar 21, 2016 03:55PM MDT

Abel,

I searched and didn't find this request, but I'd like to have the system create a calendar file (*.ics, *.ical) for events and add a link to either the event registration complete page and/or the successful registration email. Or even better, give the registrant the option to have the system automatically send a calendar request for the event.

I came across, but haven't tried, the following plugin on WordPress.org:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/ics-button/

It looks good, but you still have to enter the event information.

Anyone, it's a feature that I would certainly find helpful.

Thanks,

Clay

Hi Clay.

Thanks for the suggestion. Currently, there is a calendar feed available but for all events (feed links can be found in Events Planner > Settings > Calendar tab). I will add your suggestion to my notes and see if I can tweak that feed and offer it on the registration confirmation page.

Thanks, Abel

I will also add that an ics attachment in confirmation email will be awesome!
