What is a landing page?

Landing pages are one of the ways to deliver your calendars.

When you create a calendar you can assign it a handle, which is a unique alias for your calendar that will be used to create its own custom URL.

The URL is always formatted as follows –<handle>

To choose your handle, go to your export tab in your calendar’s page and under the landing page section choose your unique handle and save your settings.
Note: handles must be unique across all Candifly. If your handle is already taken you will receive an error message and you will have to choose another one.

Once you’ve chosen your handle you can start using your landing page URL as a direct link to your calendar.
