    Is it possible to embed an Outlook calendar into a JotForm.   (We have Outlook 2013 version.)


    (We have a calendar that we use to book our training room.  Only a few of us can actually book the room for people.   However, it would be helpful if any of our employees can view our room availability.)

    I'm afraid this can't be done within the Form Builder. And although this is beyond our scope of support, it's worth mentioning that there's an option in Outlook to share/publish calendars. These come in 2 formats:

    1. ICS

    2. WebDAV

    Related online article: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Introduction-to-publishing-Internet-Calendars

    So, if you have a web server that supports WebDAV, you can try publishing your Outlook calendar there, then just place a link of your published calendar within your form using a TEXT FIELD. Alternatively, anyone with Outlook can also open .ics files so you can also place that within your form via a TEXT FIELD.

    The text field accepts HTML so you can place links in it using HTML codes.

    This may or may not work and sadly I don't have a web server that supports WebDAV to test it with but, the article I linked above would be a good place to start.
