Add to calendar function that works across all email clients?

Is there a way to have an "add to calendar" icon/function that works with Google, Outlook, etc. -  across all email clients?

Thank you.

Is the ICS token not working?

Many options depending on your exact use case.

Hi Josh,

Can you expand on the solutions.  Our use case is that we have events and we want to include (in the email confirmation) the ability for the add to calendar function to work across email clients.

Thank you.

There's no single widget that works for all: at some point the person needs to choose their calendar provider.

Don't know if you've seen the old posts on Agical:

Hi Jamie,

Not a single one that works for all of them, but iCal and Outlook are the same (.ics) so you can just create two separate tokens for those with different hyperlink text in the standard Marketo Cal token (i.e. {{my.Outlook}} and {{my.iCal}}) and then use this awesome generator from Jenna Molby for Gmail: http://jennamolby.com/tools/google-calendar-link-generator/

Here's hers for .ics too if helpful: https://jennamolby.com/tools/ics-link-generator/
