I'm not aware you can track links on this token but would be interested to know if anyone has figured out a workaround.

Interesting. I hadn't checked that before. That's a bummer if true.

Based on my understanding, tokens cannot be trackable.  If the token contains a URL (a field type of "string"; and does not contain the http:// protocol), you need to add "http://" just before the token.  For example: "http://{{lead.customURL}}".  This would now be trackable.  This probably doesn't apply here, but just thought I'd provide some additional insight when using tokens.  We have a custom field (type "URL") where the full URL (including the http://) is part of the value.  Unfortunately Marketo is unable to add tracking code here since the full URL is contained in a token.

Add to Calendar links (technically, links to ICS files) are indeed click-tracked: they become typical links http://branding.example.com/aaEE1100uu --> http://landing.example.com/blahblah.ics.    

So I don't know what would be causing them to not show in your instance.
