Adding Add to Calendar buttons to your notifications

By default, YouCanBook.me will invite your booker to the calendar event as a participant. They will receive a calendar invitation and the event will be added to their calendar automatically. 

If you this feature turned off, you'll need to add these buttons to your confirmation email so the booker can add the meeting to their own calendar manually:

{ADD-TO-GOOGLE} {ADD-TO-MSLIVE} {ADD-TO-ICS}

Translating Add to calendar buttons in your emails

These buttons can also be translated to fit the target language of your confirmation emails. 

Currently these buttons will automatically translate to Spanish or Dutch if you've changed your booking page to one of those languages. We hope to offer more automatically translated languages in the future. 

In any of your emails to booker under Notifications > Actions, use the following strings to translate these buttons.

To translate the "Add to Google Calendar" button use:
[YOUR TEXT]({ADD-TO-GOOGLE-LINK}#addcalendarlink&useTarget=_blank&useClass=addToCalendarLink,addToGoogleLink)

To translate the "Add to Office 365" button use:
[YOUR TEXT]({ADD-TO-MSLIVE-LINK}#addcalendarlink&useTarget=_blank&useClass=addToCalendarLink,addToMsLiveLink)

To translate the "Download Calendar Invite" button use:
[YOUR TEXT]({ADD-TO-ICS-LINK}?#addcalendarlink&useTarget=_blank&useClass=addToCalendarLink,addToIcsLink)

It will render like this on you email to your bookers:

If you prefer to not have buttons in your email, you can use the shorthand codes to add links instead:

Add to Google
[YOUR TEXT]({ADD-TO-GOOGLE-LINK})

Add to Microsoft
[YOUR TEXT]({ADD-TO-MSLIVE-LINK})

[YOUR TEXT]({ADD-TO-ICS-LINK})
