Symptom

Is it possible to include a URL in the VCAL notification?

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Learning

Resolution

Option 1:

  • If this url is to used for connecting to a meeting.
  • You may have options to integrate via VLS (Virtual Learning Session) in LMS.
  • The URL will then be included in the VLE notification.
  • For example: The virtual learning service now supports Skype, Webex, Adobe Connect Meetings and Zoom


Option 2:

  1. On the message tab scroll to the "VCAL" section and update to the below (see bold text):
    BEGIN:VCALENDAR
    METHOD:REQUEST
    <LOOP>
    BEGIN:VEVENT
    UID:<ESCAPEFORVCAL value="<&VCAL_UID>"/>
    SEQUENCE:<ESCAPEFORVCAL value="<&VCAL_SEQUENCE>"/>
    ORGANIZER: <ESCAPEFORVCAL value="<&VCAL_ORG>"/>
    SUMMARY:<ESCAPEFORVCAL value="<&VCAL_SUM>"/>
    LOCATION:<&VCAL_LOCN>
    DESCRIPTION:<ESCAPEFORVCAL value="<&SEG-SUMMARY><&SCHD-DESC-EDITABLE> "/>
    DTSTART:<&VCAL_DTSTART>
    DTEND:<&VCAL_DTEND>
    BEGIN:VALARM
    TRIGGER:PT15M
    ACTION:DISPLAY
    END:VALARM
    END:VEVENT
    </LOOP>
    END:VCALENDAR
  2. Then you can add the URL to the Class > Details > Description field.
  3. Test and you should then see the URL in the VCAL invite.


Option 3:

  1. Users can receive the link in the notification as well as the .ics invite.
  2. SystemEnrollmentNotification can include the token <&SCHD-COMMENTS> which allows for plenty of characters to display a link and this token can be used in the body of the notification as well as in the VCAL configuration.
