calendar event export
We're transitioning to WA from a hodgepodge of sites and used Meetup to manage our events. I'd like to see the event export functionality that Meetup and Evite have. For both Meetup & Evite, their export process is:
1) Click Export/Add to Calendar
2) Select your particular calendar (google, iCal, outlook, yahoo)
3) Click Save to save it to your calendar [for Google anyway]
This is far easier and more elegant than having to download a file, find where it's saved to select it, and import. While you can save it from the event registration email, that creates a calendar event that is way too wordy and requires editing to see what it is other than "Event Registration confirmed for".
If you want to add event to your calendar from member-facing page, then you could use mobile app for members. Each event there can be added to your device calendar in a single tap.

If you want to make a mass export of your events in other calendar system, like Google calendar, then you can use integration service Integromat. We already have a preconfigured integration scenario for WA + Google calendar pair and a similar one could be easily implemented for other calendars. Here is a quick-start link https://www.integromat.com/en/integration/2276-copy-wild-apricot-events-into-google-calendar

I find the current calendar in WA klutzy. In a prior application I used to be able to copy the calendar image and insert in a monthly newsletter. WA's newsletter gets elongated to the point I can't do that with WA's version. So, if I could export the events and possible pass on the data to another calendar app, I could get the calendar I need for the newsletter.

Please put "Add to my calendar" on the registration confirmation page. This is too simple to start a new thread, and I hope you can just go ahead and do it in an upcoming release.
We go through the many pages of the registration process, and each page has "Add to my calendar" at the upper right. But we have other things to do on those pages.
Finally we reach the confirmation page, when we are at last ready to add the event to our calendar ... and there's no link.
Yes, we could click "Return to event" and add it, but why not do it here?
