Spaces & Equipment: iCal attachments for a location's booking confirmation / verification emails

In this article

When a patron submits a booking or when they have confirmed a booking via verification email, they receive the Confirmed / Verified email that includes details about the booking. By default, this email includes an iCal attachment—also known as an ics file—that they can load into their personal calendar to quickly generate a calendar event with all of the details of their LibCal space or equipment booking. If desired, you can turn off the iCal attachment to prevent it from being included in the email.
