|If you have an upcoming event or webinar, then you may want to include a link in your email that goes directly to Google Calendar.
This article will detail how to create a Google calendar invite and how to put a link to that calendar invite directly into a SharpSpring email.
Creating Calendar Invites
To create a Google Calendar invite, do the following:
Adding Invites to Emails

Note: You can attach Google Calendar invite URLs to any link, including an image or a button.
Limitations of Adding Links
When adding Google calendar links, be aware that the added link will not create a common event between you and your invitees. This process creates a link that creates a copy of the event, which is then hosted in your calendar.
Once you add this link to your calendar, it will be separate from and have no connection to the original event. The link will not display changes made to the original event, and you will not receive updates made to the event. However, if you update the event after sending the email, and the customer adds the event after said update, they will receive an updated copy.
SharpSpring recommends that you instead utilize the Meetings feature, which connects to your Google calendars and has built-in calendar inviting and meeting link functions.
