Why Don't ICS Files Maintain the Session Description Formatting?


While an ILC session can be formatted within the admin interface, any formatting used, including HTML, will be stripped out of the ICS file sent out with enrollment emails.

Absorb automatically strips out formatting in order to avoid readability issues with programs such as Microsoft Outlook or Apple Calendar. If you would like to include a link within the ICS file description, you can do so by writing it out in full in your ILC session description as seen below.

    It would likely be more acceptable to allow the administrator to turn formatting Off-or-On for the session description?

    Or is it a certainty that Outlook is incompatible?
