Add preencoded=false with Google format or you'll have a double-encoding problem.

Re: on24 Member Webinar URL not working in Google calendar

Works for me as expected.

This link:

Hi Sanford Thankyou for the reply, however i'm looking for Google calendar format. It works fine in ics format in my system as well.

Re: on24 Member Webinar URL not working in Google calendar

Hey Sandy,

I'm experiencing the same issue with the On24 link getting truncated when it's displayed in Google Calendar. It will end after the event ID (example: https://event.on24.com/interface/registration/autoreg/index.html?eventid=2373832).  Thanks in advance for your help!

 

URL Used:

http://ics.agical.io/?subject={{my.Webinar-Title}}&dtstart={{my.cal_Start-Time-24hrs-Gmail-Calendar}}&dtend={{my.cal_End-Time-24hrs-Gmail-Calendar}}&description={{my.Webinar-Description}}: {{member.webinar url}}&location={{member.webinar url}}&format=gcal&preencoded=false

Re: on24 Member Webinar URL not working in Google calendar

Looks like you're missing the /alt_sep — and then use ; instead of & between your params.

Re: on24 Member Webinar URL not working in Google calendar

I've updated the url with those missing elements (below) but it's still truncating the on24 url in both the Location and Description area in google calendar (all other tokens are displaying the correct text, date, time, etc).

 

http://ics.agical.io/alt_sep/?subject={{my.Webinar-Title}};dtstart={{my.cal_Start-Time-24hrs-Gmail-Calendar}};dtend={{my.cal_End-Time-24hrs-Gmail-Calendar}};description={{my.Webinar-Description}}{{member.webinar url}};location={{member.webinar url}};format=gcal;preencoded=false

Re: on24 Member Webinar URL not working in Google calendar

Noah, can you supply a final URL with the token values interpolated (not the token names)? Need that to test.

Re: on24 Member Webinar URL not working in Google calendar

Here's the URL with token values:

http://ics.agical.io/alt_sep/?subject=30|30  Webinar;dtstart=2020-06-10T14:00:00-04:00;dtend=2020-06-10T15:00:00-04:00;description=Get the latest news and happenings during the past 30 days in the SEO world in 30 minutes. Click the link when it's time to join the webinar: {{member.webinar url}};location={{member.webinar url}};format=gcal;preencoded=false

 

The full {{member.webinar url}} looks like this with the standard marketo/ical token:

https://event.on24.com/interface/registration/autoreg/index.html?eventid=2373832&sessionid=1&key=C689A5C09969D9398FBA86A7EF0A1166&firstname=Noah&lastname=Lohr&email=mnlohr@gmail.com&job_title=Senior+Manager%2C+Marketing+Operations&company=Conductor%2C+Inc.&country=United+States&zip=10016&work_phone=%28646%29+291-2490

Re: on24 Member Webinar URL not working in Google calendar

So if the final interpolated URL is:

http://ics.agical.io/alt_sep/?subject=30|30 Webinar;dtstart=2020-06-10T14:00:00-04:00;dtend=2020-06-10T15:00:00-04:00;description=Get the latest news and happenings during the past 30 days in the SEO world in 30 minutes. Click the link when it's time to join the webinar: https://event.on24.com/interface/registration/autoreg/index.html?eventid=2373832&sessionid=1&key=C689A5C09969D9398FBA86A7EF0A1166&firstname=Noah&lastname=Lohr&email=mnlohr@gmail.com&job_title=Senior+Manager%2C+Marketing+Operations&company=Conductor%2C+Inc.&country=United+States&zip=10016&work_phone=%28646%29+291-2490 ;location=https://event.on24.com/interface/registration/autoreg/index.html?eventid=2373832&sessionid=1&key=C689A5C09969D9398FBA86A7EF0A1166&firstname=Noah&lastname=Lohr&email=mnlohr@gmail.com&job_title=Senior+Manager%2C+Marketing+Operations&company=Conductor%2C+Inc.&country=United+States&zip=10016&work_phone=%28646%29+291-2490 ;format=gcal;preencoded=false

 

This is what I see in Google, doesn't look truncated from here:
