  3. New Learner ICS Features in v7.0

In response to customer requests, we have added two new features to the calendar attachment sent by Learner when a student enrolls [more]:

  • Comments
    You can include the class comments in the calendar entry
  • Document Links
    You can now include document links in the calendar entry


Both features are enabled in the Sites table.  To include comments in your ICS files, check the “Include comment in ICS files” box.  To include document links in your ICS files, check the “Include Document Links in ICS files”.

Note: Only documents linked to the class and viewable by Attendees will be sent as links to the student in the ICS file.

Other Changes

We’ve also made the following changes to the ICS file.

  • The class room location is included
  • When no classroom has been assigned, the translatable text “To Be Assigned” is now shown for the location
