Add To Calendar link on Event pages


emily.klein

Question

Hello,

I'm wanting to have an "add to calendar" link on my event pages that allows people to automatically add the event to their calendar.

I've used a third party plug-in called Eventable, which generates a code (which I've inserted using the code block) - but wondering if any clever people out there know a better way to do this as it's completely new to me and I don't really love the look of it at the moment. 

Brine template

Thanks,

Emily

There's already a built-in feature to show links on Event Pages that allow you to add the event using Google Calendar or iCal. You can usually enable this in Site Styles using the tweak Show Export Links. For more information see Styling the Events Page.

Hi @paul2009

Thanks for all your helpful content here in the squarespace community. I was wondering if you knew how to add a calendar description (rather than just event title) to google calendar from event pages? I've already turned on the export tools for google/ICS but it only shows the event TITLE, and no other details. It would be helpful to be able to be able to add a confirmation message and other event details to the squarespace event page so that it automatically carries over to their calendar when they click the export links. Any ideas? Thank you! Anique

@emily.klein, I am struggling with this too and I think you've found the best solution. Eventable is a glitchy system though and it fails to load for me frequently.

Also when I add the code it comes in as text instead of a button. 

Wish squarespace would solve for this. There is no point of adding an event to a calendar if you can't include things like streaming links and descriptions.

 

Don't get me wrong we can do so much but this one is a challenge right now.

I'm having the same problem. A title in the calendar is no good without a description and a link.

I also saw the poor reviews for Eventable. An 8 hour lag in events showing up on the client's calendar was one complaint. No free trial with Eventable, which is probably because it has these problems.

For the life of me I couldn't find this earlier today. Thank you!
