    Is it possible to have an outlook calendar invite sent along with the auto response when someone fills out a form? 

     

    Thanks, 

    Darren

    Hello Darren,

    I am not exactly familiar with Outlook's Calendar, but after searching the web, I found something that might be able to help you.

    http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/create-an-add-to-calendar-link-in-an-email-message-HA102114161.aspx

    From what I understand, the above solution requires you to create a calendar event file and upload it to your website. You will then add a link to that file on your form's autoresponder. Check out the second solution on this thread to learn how to add a link to an autoresponder email.

    This workaround works in a way that when the form submitter receives the autoresponse, they will have to click the link to the calendar file and open it with their Outlook program and add it to their appointments.

    Hope this information helps in any way.

    I also like this. I do think it is a rather std format on meeting invites sendt between mailsystems. When I invite people from outlook calender a google users gets it as an invite that goes to the calender.

    Hotels have starte sending booking confirms like this.

     

    Please make an autoresponer like this :-)
