How do calendar invites work
Calendar invites are sent to invited members along with the invite. So if your member has instant notifications turned on, they will get the invite onto their calendar the same time they get the email for the event. If they are set to Daily Digest those members will receive their calendar invitation only when they receive the daily digest email (8am EST the following morning). If they have email notifications turned off or if they are not invited, the event will be added to their calendar only when they click on Going.
