To align with industry best practices and to ensure the highest level of security for your data, we will be updating the minimum required TLS version from 1.0 to 1.2 when connecting to any of our API endpoints. This change will take effect on Monday 2023-12-11.
Please review your integration and ensure that your systems and applications are compatible with TLS 1.2. Most modern systems already support this version, but it's essential to verify and make any necessary updates to avoid disruptions in service.
If you encounter any issues or have questions regarding this update, please reply to this email or feel free to reach out to email@example.com and our team will be happy to help.
This update reflects our commitment to providing a secure and reliable service for our users. We appreciate your support and thank you for your continued trust in AddEvent.
The AddEvent team!
If you’ve ever used AddEvent’s Zapier integration, you know how incredibly useful of a tool it can be for building custom automated workflows without requiring any coding knowledge — all in mere minutes.
And if you’ve used our previous Zap version, we know it may have left a little to be desired…which is why we’re excited to announce that our new and improved version is now live!
This upgraded integration was rebuilt from the ground up, featuring a variety of optimizations and bug fixes that deliver an improved user experience. It’s important to note that you must migrate to the new Zapier (6.5.0) version to take advantage of these improvements and features.
Check out these Help Docs for more information on the changes and migration requirements:
Zapier also has a helpful document that will walk you through this update process in great detail: Assisted Update.
If you run into any issues when trying to update to this new version, or if there is some functionality that you think is missing or not working as intended, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be more than happy to help.

Over the years, we have transformed AddEvent from an add to calendar button to your one-stop shop for events and calendars, adding more value to empower our customers.
A lot has changed in AddEvent—and the world—since we launched. Since our last price increase in 2017, we’ve expanded our offerings, including flexible tools to increase your event attendance and ongoing subscriber base, built out an easier-to-use infrastructure, and added Zapier and Mailchimp integrations, customizable templates, RSVPs, reminder and follow-up emails, and so much more. What may have once been "just an add to calendar button" is now the indispensable calendar and event center for hundreds of thousands of users, connecting people through events worldwide.
To reflect the value we've added and ensure we can keep investing in innovation and providing the best-in-class support you've come to expect, we are announcing our first price increase to Small Business plans since 2017. These changes will come into effect on May 22, 2023, for all new users, and on June 21, 2023, for all existing users.

The AddEvent Team
Microsoft broke the direct method that we were using to add events to users calendars for Office 365. This is not the first time that this has happened, but we have a workaround for your users! We’ve updated the event-add process for Office 365 to use the API method instead of the direct method. Unfortunately, the API method requires that users give AddEvent permission to “Have full access to your calendars”, but there's nothing that we can do about that as long as the direct method is broken. You can find some help articles related to this issue here:
We fixed a couple of bugs with our amazing new image manager that we recently launched. You can find more information about that in a previous update note, or in this help doc.
We're excited to share lots of new features and functionality in this release that you have been asking for!
We've recently made a couple of updates to our system that may affect how you use your accounts on AddEvent and AppointmentThing. This update specifically impacts customers who use both services.
When the AddEvent team launched AppointmentThing over 2 years ago, we wanted it to be tightly integrated with our existing platform and so we made the decision that accounts would be "shared" across both services. What this essentially meant was that you could log into your AddEvent account with your AppointmentThing credentials and vice versa.
As both platforms have matured and evolved over the past couple of years, we think it no longer makes sense to do that and so we have made the decision to separate AddEvent accounts from AppointmentThing accounts.
On a day-to-day basis, this change should have little or no impact on how you use AddEvent or AppointmentThing. You'll still be able to log into each system with your existing credentials. However, you will notice the following changes:
There should be no further impact on your account on either service. We are still committed to building excellent products and providing brilliant customer support to our users.
Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns!
It’s been a minute since we’ve shared an update with you, so, just like Rihanna at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, we are coming back with some mic-dropping news.
IFyou’ve previously used an
IFstatement in custom landing page templates, you might have noticed a slight change. This shouldn’t impact any functionality, it simply works better than it did before now!
Believe it or not, when we fix things, sometimes unknown bugs will pop up as a result. So, here are some of the bug fixes that made it in this release:
%5cwas being added to the end of hyperlinks in event descriptions when events or calendars were duplicated.
Happy New Year to all of our AddEvent users both old and new!
You asked and we listened...we have updated our Hobby user limits for RSVP and Calendar Subscribers by 100%. Increasing this usage allows Hobby users up to 20 RSVPs per usage cycle and 20 ongoing Calendar Subscribers.
We hope this allows our Hobby users to host more types of RSVP events and grow their calendar subscribers as needed!
