Discussion

iCalendar (also known as iCal and ICS) is a calendar interchange format designed for interoperability between various calendaring systems.

By enabling the Include ICS file in event related emails option, we will automatically attach a small .ics file to each event-related email notification we send to the event participants. This file includes all of the event details.

Their email provider (e.g. Outlook) will automatically detect the presence of such files and sync the information we include in them with the user's calendar. This not only allows for calendar event creations, but updates as well, so people's calendars stay up to date.
