    I use JotForm for event Registration, however I would like a feature that does a "calendar reminder" - for all calendars (google, ical etc....) That would be VERY Helpful!!!

    You can create a calendar report if this works for you.

    https://www.jotform.com/help/249-How-to-Create-a-Calendar-Report

    However, if you want to integrate JotForm with Google Calendar, that's possible through Zapier. E.g. Create Google Calendar Event on New Form Submission.

    Hope this helps!

    For a  person who has RSVP'd for an event, I want them to click a link and update their google calendar, or Apple calendar. I've seen this option on other emails.

    The options in Zapier don't allow this

    Hello @cheryl6922 - For emails, yes, this is a must-have feature so some platforms may have this. However, in our line of business as a form builder, I'm afraid we don't have that kind of option.

    With my colleague's suggestion, Zapier only acts as a middleman between JotForm and Google Calendar. The main goal of this connection is to add events to Google Calendar on form submission.

    As a workaround outside JotForm, you may want to check out this website https://addtocalendar.com/ (on the Use the Add to Calendar link in an email campaign section) that offers links that you can place on emails.

    Although this is beyond our scope of support, the best help I can offer is to point you in the right direction. Hope this helps!

    Thank you.. I've used Addtocalendar.... but I thought maybe there was a new widget that would allow for calendar reminders when I saw the "Event Registration" popup...

    Hopefully this feature will be added in the future!!!

     

    Thanks again!
