"Add to Google Calendar" button on event details

Today a client requested an "Add to Google Calendar" button on our event details page, in addition to the "Add to Outlook" function we already have.

Would you find this useful as well? Please post your comments below.

        This has been asked for by members of both groups that I administer WA for (private club and professional association).

        I have had similar problems in the past trying to insert addthis scripts for social media sharing - the WA CMS has a habit of stripping out "empty" tags when inserted into the html area.

        You may need to raise a support ticket to get help with this one.

        That said - I'd really like to get this feature added to the roadmap/wishlist as given WA is an events management tool, its kinda weird that it doesn't exist!

        There's a free Calendar widget called AddThisEvent [http://addthisevent.com/], but I'm struggling to integrate it into my event description, and I'm not sure what the problem is.

        If I use the code on a regular page, the button works just fine, but in an event description the javascript code no longer works to display a button, but instead just displays the html code as written.

        Has anyone had any luck integrating any "Add to Calendar" buttons to their events that don't simply generate an .ical file?

        I'm looking for something such as the Seattle Dahlia Festival's page [http://seattle.findwell.com/event/seattle-dahlia-society-annual-show/] -- if you scroll down you can see a grey "+ Google Calendar" button that automatically opens up your Create Event function in Google Calendar. Much easier to use than exporting/importing an .ical file.

        Thanks for any help you can give me!

        Any chance an Add to Calendar feature might be added to the Events calendar? I just registered for a (non-WA event) and a screen popped up offering to add the event to my Outlook Calendar, Lotus Notes Calendar or Google Calendar. Pretty nice! ThanksDoug HenningsenMarin Cyclists
