##The following will generate calendar tokens for Google and Outlook. Based on Sanford's amazing Agical - https://blog.teknkl.com/introducing-agical-io-the-smarter-ics-file-generator/

##01 - Setting variables
#set($event_organizer   = "Team")
#set($event_title       = "NAME OF EVENT")
#set($event_timezone    = "America/Los_Angeles")  ##IMPORTANT! FOR THIS TO WORK MAKE SURE TO USE A CANONICAL https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones
#set($event_start_date  = "YYYY-MM-DD")         ##YYYY-MM-DD
#set($event_start_time  = "HH:MM")           ##24 hour format
#set($event_end_date    = "YYYY-MM-DD")         ##YYYY-MM-DD
#set($event_end_time    = "HH:MM")           ##24 hour format
#set($event_reminder    = "15")           ##Reminder of the event that pops up in someone's calendar
#set($event_all_day     = false)           ##true/false - used for events that span multiple days
#set($event_lobby    	= "Event lobby with HTTPS://")
#set($event_description = "Thank you for registering for ${event_title}.")         
#set($event_join = "To join this webinar please follow this link: ${event_lobby}")

##DO NOT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE

##Setting date and times correctly
#set($locale 			= $date.getLocale())
#set($timezone 			= $date.getTimeZone().getTimeZone("${event_timezone}"))

##Create date objects from the strings above for start and end times
#set($agical_start_date = $date.toDate("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm", "${event_start_date} ${event_start_time}", $locale, $timezone)) ##Creates a date object from the string 
#set($agical_end_date 	= $date.toDate("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm", "${event_end_date} ${event_end_time}", $locale, $timezone)) ##Creates a date object from the string 

##Format the date ready for AgiCal
#set($agical_start_date = $date.format("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ssZ", $agical_start_date, $locale, $timezone)) ##Formats the date into something readable for AgiCal
#set($agical_end_date 	= $date.format("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ssZ", $agical_end_date, $locale, $timezone)) ##Formats the date into something readable for AgiCal

##Escaping the evils
#set($event_title_gcal = $event_title.replace("+", "%2B"))
#set($event_title_gcal = $esc.url($event_title_gcal))
#set($agical_start_date = $esc.url($agical_start_date))
#set($agical_end_date 	= $esc.url($agical_end_date))
#set($event_organizer	= $esc.url($event_organizer))
#set($event_title 		= $esc.url($event_title))
#set($event_description_gcal = $event_description.replace("+", "%2B"))
#set($event_description_gcal = $esc.url($event_description_gcal))
#set($event_description = $esc.url($event_description))
#set($event_lobby_gcal		= $esc.url($event_lobby))
#set($event_reminder 	= $esc.url($event_reminder))
#set($event_join_outlook = $esc.url($event_join))
#set($event_join_gcal = $event_join.replaceAll("\n", "<BR>"))
#set($event_join_break = "<BR>")


##Produce the wonderful AgiCal URLs
#set($agical_url = "https://ics.agical.io/?subject=${event_title}&organizer=${event_organizer}&reminder=${event_reminder}&dtstart=${agical_start_date}&dtend=${agical_end_date}&attach=${event_lobby}&location=${event_lobby}&description=${event_description}${event_join_outlook}")
#set($agical_url_gcal = "https://ics.agical.io/?subject=${event_title_gcal}&organizer=${event_organizer}&reminder=${event_reminder}&dtstart=${agical_start_date}&dtend=${agical_end_date}&attach=${event_lobby_gcal}&location=${event_lobby_gcal}&description=${event_description_gcal}${event_join_break}${event_join_gcal}&format=gcal")

##All day and all night?
#if($event_all_day == true)
    #set($agical_url = "$agical_url&allday=1")
    #set($agical_url_gcal = "$agical_url&allday=1")
#end

##Output the links
<a href="${agical_url}" target="_blank" class="atc-outlook" style="color: #fe5000;">Outlook</a> | <a href="${agical_url_gcal}" target="_blank" class="atc-gcal" style="color: #fe5000;">Google Calendar</a>
