Search results webpart gets all the events. We have a display template where we are trying to set the "Add to OutLook" link. Below is the link we are using


But the problem is that we want the description field to be multi line and rich text box. The default column Comments(Description) is just multi-line and not rich text, how is it possible to make it rich text as well. Or can you build the link using parameters so that we can pass a custom TestDescrption column which is multi line and rich text instead of just multi line.

EDIT 1 I tried using the below plugin to add the link and pass data to get the events. http://addtocalendar.com/?utm_source=tag&utm_medium=go&utm_campaign=tag Unfortunatly, it does not take in to consideration the AllDayEvent, Recurrent Event in the options.

Note: I am using an item display template to show the results from the events along with the add to 'calendar link'

You can get some idea from "https://html2openxml.codeplex.com/documentation"

  • we are using o365, dont think this will work for it.
