I just received an ICS file. How do I use it to add an event to my calendar when using Outlook for the Web?

Collin Wynne -- Fri, 11/01/2019 - 7:26am

In order to use an ICS file to add an event to your calendar when using Outlook for the Web you
must first save the ICS file to your computer's disk drive. (Normally clicking on the
ICS file from an email or attachment will cause a new window to appear with the
option to save the file to the local disk or open the file with a program on your computer.
Choose to save the file to your local disk and remember the location where it is stored.)
