How can I add a link to my campaign that will create a calendar appointment so recipients can save a date?

You can make use of EasyEditor's document manager to do this.

Follow these steps (in this example, we assume your working with Outlook but you'll be able to do this for various other calendar apps too): 

  1. Create your event in your Outlook calendar
  2. Open the event in your Outlook calendar and click File > Save As, ensure 'Save as type:' is set as 'iCalendar Format' (.ics file), and then click Save
  3. Edit your campaign in EasyEditor and upload the .ics file as a downloadable link via our document manager

Recipients will then be able to click on this link in your campaign to download the .ics file, open it, and then save the event to their calendar.

    Thanks Neal. I've set up a calendar invite link, but when I click on it from an iPhone I see the following message before I can add the event to my calendar: 'This website is trying to show you a calendar invite. Do you want to allow this? Ignore / Allow '

    Is there a way to bypass this or is this an iPhone default?

    Thanks

    Hi Sorcha - I believe this is a standard iOS default dialog box for an .ics file, yes.
