Add a calendar feature to forms, or allow an icalendar file to upload, so people can add an event their Outlook calendar after they have registered via the form.

Hi HubSpot Community,

 

My name is Joe, I'm the Ideas Forum Manager. I've been in contact with the HubSpot product team about this Idea, and I wanted to provide a quick update.

 

We appreciate all the feedback you’ve shared here to help our team evaluate this feature request. However, at this time, this functionality is not something our team is planning to build into HubSpot. This is certainly subject to change in the future, so feel free to leave feedback if you'd like. We'll update this thread if our plans change.


Best,

Bill, thanks for your feedback @eden09, these are really helpful examples to work from. We'll add this to our roadmap and see what we can do. No ETA yet but as we have more information we'll keep you all posted.

Hi @eden09! Not at the moment I'm afraid, but we're always on the lookout for feedback, if you had any examples of other places you've seen this functionality or ways it could help with your campaigns please do share.

Yes please!! 

 

We don't and can't use meeting function for our events but would like a way to do this still 🙂

 Hi @Shay

 

Is there any indication that this type of add to calendar functionality will be integrated into the HubSpot forms?

 

Thank you!

Hi @Shay!

 

Constant Contact event registration thank you pages have the functionality. I'm not sure what Cisco uses, but their webinar registration pages have it as well.  This is the type of functionlaity I am referring to: https://www.addevent.com/add-to-calendar-button

 

Where the "add to calendar" has an event for all calendar types 🙂

Hi there! 

This is definitely a feature our company would be interested in as well. We love the new HubSpot integration with Go To Webinar. In GTW, the follow-up email gives registrants the ability to "Add to Cal" when they sign up. Since HubSpot follow-up emails are much prettier and more trackable, we'd prefer to use HubSpot but definitely feel the need for an Add to Cal feature or we fear registrants will forget!

Thanks,
Brenna Needham

YES PLEASE - totally need this. Great to see it on the lead flow forms but please please add to standard forms too.

Yes, this is definitely needed. I would love to not have to hack this into existence using https://www.addevent.com/. Eventbrite has this functionality. This is seems like it would work for now: https://add.eventable.com/free-add-to-calendar-button .  

 

I am using the latest hubspot HUG templates and want to generate an add to calendar link based on next event module and the events template.

Agreed. This would be very helpful functionality. Right now this process is clunky.  Ensuring we have an easy, fast way to create and manage these calendar links for Hubspot landing pages and emails should be included in the platform. It seems to be a big missing piece in the offering.  As a long-time Hubspot user, I know these types of capabilities roll out over time and appreciate the complexities involved - but this is a functionality that seems essential for helping to make sure individuals show up to events, meetings, webcasts, etc. I hope to hear this is coming soon.

I'll need this as well! For both Outlook and Gmail. 
Anything new on the status for this request?

This is really needed, to provide our prospects a better user experience for confirmation of registration and ease of use to adding the event to their calendars. This will deliver a better conversion rate for attendance at events with it being in their calendar as a reminder. Thanks

Hi All, 

 

Quick update - the workaround I been doing is using a tool called Eventable.

 

Within my hubspot email I have a hubspot cta or button image with Add to Calendar and hyperlink it to the Eventable link.
