Can I add Markdown to the body of my calendar events?

Markdown is a simplified formatting language that allows you to stylize the text in your YouCanBook.me booking page and emails.

However adding Markdown to your calendar event will result in the formatting being displayed on actual bookings. This is because calendar programs strip the translated formatting and expose the formatting code.

Enter only plain text in the body of your calendar event to avoid the exposed formatting.

Additionally, when adding shorthand codes to the body of your calendar event, you'll want to add the shorthand codes that are not pre-formatted to be hyperlinks. That means:

  • Use {CANCEL-LINK} for the booker cancel link, instead of {CANCEL}
  • Use {RESCHEDULE-LINK} for the booker reschedule link, instead of {RESCHEDULE}
  • Use {OWNER-CANCEL-LINK} for the owner cancel link, instead of {OWNER-CANCEL}
  • Use {OWNER-RESCHEDULE-LINK} for the owner reschedule link, instead of {OWNER-RESCHEDULE}
  • Use {ZOOM-LINK} for the zoom link generated by YouCanBook.me, instead of {ZOOM}
  • Use {GOOGLEMEET-LINK} for the google meet link generated by YouCanBook.me, instead of {GOOGLEMEET)

Your calendar program will automatically hyperlink these "raw links" when they appear on your calendar.
