Today's update is small, but one many users have been asking for. You now have the ability to customize which link is used in your reminders and summaries. For current users the default of Automatic will work well so there is nothing to worry about unless you wish to change it.

Why the change

Previously, Chronicle Bot would use the event's location field (if it was a valid URL) and the event calendar link as a fallback. Some users requested to instead use the Discord Event Link, or even Google Meet if it has been added to the event.

How links work now

The default setting of Automatic searches through all of the possible links until it finds one. Setting this to a specific link type will force that, and only that link type, to be used. Additional details can be found in the Advanced Settings docs.

Where to find this setting

There is a new Settings tab in your event notifiers where you can select your Event Link type. We have several additional items planned for this tab in the near future, so it shouldn't look lonely for long.


We hope you enjoy this new update and as always, if you have any questions or feedback feel free to reach out to us on Discord, Mastodon, or Twitter.
