Add Multiple URLs to a Calendar Event Apps
I frequently want to add multiple URLs to Calendar events. Of course, you can put them in the Notes section, but given that there's a URL field, it seems a little kludgey. This solution is kludgey too, but perhaps a bit less so.

Drag the additional link(s) to the Finder to create a .webloc file; then drag that file to the attachment field for the event.

You can double-click the file to open the link, which is better than the link being non-clickable in the Notes field, where you would have to highlight and right-click (Control+click). The URL won't appear in the body of an email when you send an event to someone, but it will be in the attached .ics file.

Add Multiple URLs to a Calendar Event
Authored by: scott721 on Apr 25, '14 07:22:03AM

With all due respect to the original tipster, this seems awfully convoluted. I just did this several times this morning by doing this:

1. Open the calendar event and paste in the first URL
2. Hold down the option key and hit the Return key
3. Paste in the second (and subsequent URLs) in the newly created space

This process takes just a couple of seconds and doesn't leave any orphaned files on your desktop. Am I missing something here?

Kudos. Didn't know you could do this. And it's a vastly superior method. I searched and hadn't found any hints for entering multiple URLs in a calendar event. I wouldn't mind if my hint was taken down and replaced with the method you found.

That's very gracious of you, Rob. It's so rare to see someone put the interests of readers or constituents ahead of their own egos as you have here. Kudos to *YOU* for doing so.

Option-Return didn't work in Calendar 7.0, Mavericks 10.9.3, even with blank line between 2 URLs. When clicked, one long combined URL was passed to Safari Address field.
