Sync the calendar links within workflows into Outlook

Hi, when the user receives confirmation email generated by workflow that he is booked to the following training course, we would like that email contains a link to download this appointment information to the outlook calendar

Thanks in advance

    Syncing appointments into a calendar such as Outlook or Google calendars would be a useful tool

    Hi Anna,

    It is already possible to insert a link to an ical using workflows. This can be accessed via quick links when creating the workflow text (see attachment). Click in the link in the text editor to amend the link wording.

    Many thanks,
    Dave

    iCal is Apple's calendar as far as I understand. My request is about Microsoft Outlook calendar, and Google calendar could be also useful

    Hi Anna,

    It does sound like an apple calendar but iCals are compatible with microsoft and google. I've attached a copy of an ical - this is what will open when you click the link.

    Outlook user simply click save once its open and it appears in their calendar.

    Google users do it by importing the attachement ( see https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/30834/add-an-ical-or-.ics-calendar-to-google-calendar/

    I hope this helps.

    HI Dave

    Was it intended that your link brought me to the mario 404 page? :=)
