Inviting people to a calendar invite via Shortcuts

Currently I have a shortcut that allows me to create a calendar event based on date/time (from input) and contact data (from selection from Contacts). However, I do not see a way to add someone to the event I’ve created within Shortcuts. Is there a way I can do this with the email associated with their contact I have stored?

I don’t think there’s a way to do this, at least not with the built-in calendar. Perhaps it may be possible with Fantastical or similar but I don’t have any of those installed—maybe someone else here has more experience with those and can provide a suggestion?

Poked around and you’re correct, there is not a current way to do this. However, I built in a workaround: Get email from Contacts>Copy to clipboard>Show Calendar Event upon finishing. Then I “edit” the calendar invite and manually paste the email. Not perfect but it still save a lot of time.
