I’m running EE4.4.5.p on WP4.0.1.

Is it possible to add a shortcode for [add_to_calendar] on the registration email on EE4? I really need to find a way to include the ICS link (which I can see is available on the Events list) into the email.

Hi George, a shortcode isn’t currently available so I’ve created a feature request to have one added in a future version of Event Espresso 4.

Thanks again!

Hello George,

I wanted to let you know that this is now available in the current version of Event Espresso 4.

Important: Please backup your WordPress ( before making any changes and updating Event Espresso 4.

You can see the changelog for Event Espresso 4 here:

Here is how to find it after updating to the latest version of Event Espresso 4:
