We are using SharePoint Events for training but we have no idea who is registering. Below is an example of a stat holiday. If the user clicks 'Add to my calendar', it creates an individual .ics

Is there a way to send out a shared calendar invite instead of individual .ics files so we can track who is registering for these events?

  • Note using a regular "Events" list, no. If you are using a "group-connected" site, you can use the outlook-connected Group calendar and the Group Calendar WebPart

For SharePoint Online, the best approach for your goal may still be using the Group calendar in Outlook to arrange and use the group calendar web part mentioned by willman. It is more integrated with office 365 group for you to track and manage group member events.

  • Unfortunately, this still doesn't work for tracking who accepted the event. When they click 'Add to my Calendar', it provides a single .ics file which creates a separate event in their calendar. They are not added to the original Calendar invite and the admin has no idea who is attending their training event. Commented Mar 11, 2020 at 17:08
