OK. I’m trying to find a way to generate an .ics file to add to an outgoing email to clients who book an appointment. I suspect this is going to involve code (which essentially puts me out of the loop).
The little bit of research that I have done says it can be done from uploading a csv file, but I’m not using a spreadsheet to create the appointment.
Anyone have any commentary, ideas, solutions that I can look at?
I’m using Acuity Scheduling, Airtable, and Postmark for these integrations.

I don’t think you don’t need an ics file, perhaps you want to adjust settings in Acuity. It should have the ability to send a link (via email or on the thank you page) to the user who can click that to add it to their calendar.
If not, you could create an event in your calendar (automatically with a Zapier integration) that then has the user listed as a guest and the calendar should send an email to the user for them to accept/add it to their calendar.
Is there someone specifically asking for an ICS file? Most people click the yes or add to calendar buttons in those emails and it adds the event to their calendar.
