    I am creating a central company form where all employees can submit request for numerous things.  What I need is to send a calednar reminder to receipents of the form.  Any thoughts?

    I searched the apps and widgets and did not find anything that seems like it would work, or at least for the keywords I used anyways. 

    Thanks,

    There is a way to add events to calendar using the form. But so far it will only work with Google Calendar.

    You can check the app using Zapier integration here https://zapier.com/app/editor/template/9372

    An alternative method you may want to check also is to use the form Autoresponder Email as the reminder message to the recipient.

    It will not be added on a calendar, but the auto email can be scheduled (so it behave like a reminder).

    Ex:

     

    You can also trigger the auto email using condition rules. For example, on specific date you want the email (reminder message) to be sent, you can create a condition statement wherein the edited submission will trigger the email reminder on the specified date.

    I hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
