Add Event to Calendar

It'd be really awesome to have a feature that allows people to add the event that they signed up for to their calendar. One way this could be accomplished is by allowing Admins to upload .ics files in the document library. A step beyond that even is for this file to automatically be generated if the Admin selects for that. I understand there may be limits to the number of files we can save so allowing Admins to choose only the most important to have the .ics file. Another option would be for files to automatically terminate after the event start time. (Or even RSVP deadline)

    Late to the party, but for what it's worth there doesn't appear to be a native function but there are several open-source tools that can be integrated. ALSAC recently added this option into our new fundraising center. Results TBD.

    Any updates on this? Has anyone done a workaround that was successful?

    Does anyone know if this feature has become available? if not, does anyone have any workaround ideas? Thanks!

    Any movement on this? I just spent almost an entire day getting a workaround to work so we could use an 'Add Giving Tuesday to your calendar' link in our Save the date emails.

    I would love this too. This would be very helpful for our constituents.

    Since I see re the most recent Luminate Online/TeamRaiser quarterly update webinar that the rebuild of the Calendar Events module is as much as a year away still, I'm chiming in here on behalf of Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Boston to request that this feature be made available ASAP!!

    Is there an ETA on when this feature may be available?  The Allen Institute is very interested in this as well.

    Riverkeeper would also really appreciate this feature. It would not only help our staff, but really help us with attendance of events because if you let me upload our own ICS files I could program them to have automatic reminders.

    I have been asked several times by staff and patrons for this functionality in EVENTS.  Please put it on the list for product enhancements!

    This was originally submitted by Meredith Begin from Food and Water Watch.

    Thanks for this input Meredith. Automating the creation of ICS files is something that I've been thinking about as well and have it on my list of features to consider when we are ready to rebuild or add more features to our Calendar/Events tool.
