Embeddable calendars are a fantastic tool to engage your customers, increase attendance at your events, and provide a simple and beautiful overview of your upcoming events directly on your website. Our embeddable calendars are packed full of features, and allow you to manage and share all your events with your users with ease. Embedding a calendar on your website is perfect for so many different use cases: embed a class calendar on your course website, let your customers know when your next promotional events are happening, or let users know about upcoming tutorials, webinars, and special events.
AddEvent’s embeddable calendars integrate quickly and seamlessly with your website. If you use a website builder like Wix, Squarespace, WordPress, Weebly, Leadpages, or Jimbo, we’ve got you covered – our embeddable calendar will work perfectly there too.
Adding an embeddable calendar to your website is as simple as creating the calendar and your events in AddEvent, customizing it to suit your needs, and then copying and pasting the code into your website. This article will show you how to create, customize, and embed your calendar in 5 super-easy steps!
One of the most powerful pieces of functionality offered by our embeddable calendar is that AddEvent’s embeddable calendar and AddEvent’s subscription calendar are the same thing! You can let a user subscribe to your calendar directly from the calendar embedded on your website or you can use any of our other sharing methods: an add to calendar button for your website, add to calendar links for your emails, a calendar landing page or direct links to the calendar service for your embeddable calendar.
If a user subscribes to your embeddable calendars, this creates a dynamic link between the calendar in AddEvent and their calendar service, which means that if you add new events or update your event details, these changes will be shown in your user’s calendars. You can allow users to subscribe to your calendar anonymously or collect completely customizable data on each of your users before they can subscribe.
If you don’t want to allow users to subscribe to your calendar, that’s as simple as removing that option when you are customizing your embeddable calendar.
At AddEvent, we believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise when it comes to how your embeddable calendar looks on your website. We give you two powerful customization options to customize your embeddable calendar: quick customize, and custom calendar templates.
You can also use the same technique to embed a single event on your website. Like our embeddable calendar, our embeddable events are completely customizable and will integrate seamlessly with your custom site or any website builder that you use like Wix, Squarespace, WordPress, Weebly, Leadpages, or Jimbo.
