Shortcut: Share iOS Calendar Events

This is the quickest "application/program" I have created to solve something tedious I bump into occasionally.

โ€‹

None asks for someone else email nowadays ๐Ÿ˜’

โ€‹

Context

๐Ÿ”ด If you are an "iOS Calendar" user and want to share an event with anyone, you need their email address ๐Ÿ˜–. Most people only have their phone numbers, WhatsApp, Telegram, Linkedin, etc.

โ€‹

๐Ÿ”ด If you received calendar events from anyone, those are usually a file that looks like this:



When you tap on them, your phone can display the information ๐Ÿ˜ƒ, but there is no "Save to my calendar" button ๐Ÿ˜–

โ€‹

Solution



  1. Trigger the shortcut from the Shortcuts app or any widget you might have created.

  2. Export/Convert (Save to my calendar) ICS file formats

  3. Share your calendar events with anyone using email, phone, or instant messaging.
