Step-by-step guide

  1. Login to the Announcements Dashboard
  2. Create a new post or if you already have a preexisting post, navigate to the post and edit it.
  3. Click on the HTML button of the block
  4. Copy and paste this code into the editor and it should look like the image below
    1. <!-- Button code -->
      <div title="Add to Calendar" class="addeventatc">
          Add to Calendar
          <span class="start">06/01/2019 08:00 AM</span>
          <span class="end">06/01/2019 10:00 AM</span>
          <span class="timezone">America/New_York</span>
          <span class="title">Change to Event Title</span>
          <span class="description">Change to Event Description</span>
          <span class="location">Change to Location of Event</span>

  6. Change "Change to Event Title" to the title of your event
