    we have many event forms and would like to include a link in the auto reply that allows the submitter to save the event date to their calendar. Is this possible?

    To clarify, do you want to link another form in the autoresponder or the same form?

    Can you please share more information regarding the flow of your form?

    Looking forward for your response.

    Not quite; we want the auto-reply to allow the user to add the event to their calendar. Like an iCal feature.

    We have a Google Calendar integration you can try.

    You may use the Google Calendar integration to create an event and reminder in the users Google Calendar.

    Please give it a try and let us know if this fits your requirements.

    Closer; I want the user (the person submitting the form) to be able to add the event to their calendar. 

    I'm thinking of when I sign up for a webinar, and the confirmation then allows me to add that event to my calendar (as the submitter), and typically I can choose from Google, Outlook, etc.

    (I do like this feature that you suggest for adding it my calendar, also)

    Hi @LyndaAbel,

    Currently, only Google Calendar integration is available with Jotform. There is no direct integration with Outlook calendar yet but you can try using Zapier. Here's a link for that: https://zapier.com/apps/jotform/integrations/office-365/3410/send-jotform-entries-to-an-office-365-calendar

    Also, you can only use one Google account per integration, which means your users won't be able to add theirs to the integration when they submit the form.

    Thanks; Love this product and have used for years. The calendar integration feature, to me, is the biggest missing piece.

    Do you have a link for users to request additional features? Calendar integration is huge.

    I like how Calendly and other scheduling applications handle it.

    Thanks.

    I have moved the other concern to a separate thread so we could assist you better on that specific topic.

    I will be posting my response to that in this link below shortly:
