If you want to create an event with a fixed date, you'll want to create a single event. Go to 'create event' in your CalendarLink account, fill in the details and save your event!
Creating multiple / recurring events
If you want to create a series of events, you can easily duplicate your first event to create a series of events in your event collection. Go to your collection or dashboard and duplicate the event you want to copy.
Note: By creating multiple events instead of one recurring event, you have the ability to update your upcoming events and change dates last minute (it will change in their calendars as well), without having to invite everyone again.
Creating RSVP events
Create an RSVP event if you want to know exactly who will be attending. You can also set the maximum number of attendees, customize your questions and more. After responding, your users will be able to add the event to their collection. They will also receive an e-mail confirming their response and have the ability to update their response.
Create events automatically
Automate the creation of events with Zapier or by using Smart Links. A Smart Link can be used in any tool - like Mailchimp, Wordpress or Shopify - that can create links or buttons.
You can use that tool's parameters to create a customized event - like a reminder or confirmation - automatically. Zapier can be used to create single and RSVP events triggered by any tool Zapier supports. Or use new CalendarLink events to trigger any other tool in Zapier.
You can personalize all events by adding 'personalization fields' to the event link. And you can use your tool's corresponding personalization fields or Zapier to personalize your events. If you add an email, we'll even automatically suggest the corresponding calendar based on the domain of the email address.
You can customize the event pages to match your brand and events per collection. This helps you to create an even more seamless uses experience and get more out of each add-to-calendar interaction. Go to your design page to create or adjust your design.
Sharing single & RSVP events
After creating your event, you'll find multiple options for sharing your event. You can:
1) Share the public page Copy & paste this public URL and share it anywhere you want: on your website, email campaign or social media. 2) Create a button Create an HTML button andcopy & paste the code anywhere you want: on your website, email campaign or social media. 3) Direct Add-to-Calendar links Copy & paste the direct Add-to-Calendar links code to show the links to each calendar directly on your website or in your email.
Multiple events: subscribe to calendar
If you have multiple events you can share the collection all at once by sharing the public collection page. This is a page that shows all your future events.
Users can 'Subscribe to all' events and will receive updates and new events added to the collection automatically (this can take up to 24 hours, depending on their calendar settings). You can optionally allow users to both 'Subscribe to all' and add a single event only.
After changing your organization's timezone, only new events will be created with this new timezone. Users will always see the event in their own timezone used by their device. They are able to change the timezone if necessary.
Calendar push notifications are set to 30 minutes before the event happens.
It's important to note that these reminders are managed by the calendar services. CalendarLink can't confirm these push notifications, as their functionality is dependant on the specific calendar platform your user's individual calendar settings.
