Published  March 8th, 2023  by Michael Nilsson

Subscription calendar functionality lets you get calendar events on your users' calendars. Using a dynamic connection, any new events or updates to an event you make will be reflected in your subscribers' calendars. If your subscribers have subscribed using their Google calendar, they can choose to be notified each time an event is added to the subscription calendar or each time an event is updated. The calendar subscriber should follow the steps below to enable these email notifications.

How the subscriber can enable the notification email on their Google Calendar

  1. Click the three dots to the right of the subscription calendar's name and then click Settings.
  2. Scroll down to or click on the "Other notifications" section.
  3. Click the dropdown menu next to "New Events" and "Changed events" and select Email.

What the notification looks like

The subscriber will receive a notification via email with the subject "New event" and the details of the newly added event. Below is an example of an email notification.

Please note that if you are using event series and you update all of the events in a series, this will result in an email notice for each event in the series.
