    I have a form attached to google calendar.

    The name and the comment box data are transferred to the calendar, but it does not tranfer which item is picked on the multiple choice section, and I must wait for the email to figure out what each individual needs.

    Can I program the form to send multiple choice results to google calendar?

    Hi,

    I tried this and the multiple-choice form field is working properly with Google Calendar integration. Please check my screencast and try it on your end:

    It is possible for location and description only to pass the multiple-choice form field data to Google Calendar:

    Try it again and let us know if you have any questions. Thank you!

    This is what it looks like in my calendar. It just says {WhichLabs21} without including the entry.

    I think that I have written down the wrong term. {WhichLabs} is obviously my own name for the multiple choice entry. What would be the correct terminology (typeA) {Which Lab (s)} {multiple choice}?

    Hi,

    I am not sure what multiple-choice field you're referring to. But, please find the field's unique name by following this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/146-how-to-find-field-ids-and-names and use it.

    Please share the form link so we can check what you're trying to achieve. Thank you!

    I have followed the instructions, and I still cannot make this work. So I have a form that has multiple options, and I would like the chosen choice or choices to show up on my google calendar. This is what the form looks like.

    But when I look at the response on my calendar, it does not pass the information through to the calendar.

    I followed the instructions and found the name of the section and clicked on it in the integrations section. The section was named {whichLabs}.

    1611866974_6013235eb9917_JotformWhichLab

    I clicked on it and it added whichLabs to my description. Then I deleted {whichLabs21}

    I made sure to finish the new integration.

    1611867098_601323dab9d97_jotform_google_

    But then when I sent a new test form through, I got the same result. It did not move {whichLabs} to behind {additionalNotes} and it did not pass the results through to the form.

    I have no idea why this is not working. I was planning to make an additional form, but I would like to get this form fixed first. Any ideas?

    I checked your account and I cannot find the form you're working on.

    I created a new form to test it on my and here's the result:

    Google Calendar:

    Please share the correct form link so we can investigate it further. Please try removing the integration and add it back again. You only need the Form Unique Name of the Multiple Choice field. Please remove the {whichLabs21} or let us know where did you get it so we can check it too.

    I made the new form the same way that you did, and it works correctly.

    I think this must be a permissions problem because I have the form hosted on my college's account. It is shared with me.

    I will attempt to get them to make the change. Thanks for the help.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the inconvenience. I checked these forms and it belongs to the account username (HillCollege).

    https://www.jotform.com/form/210278297403153

    It looks like you updated the Field Label to Additional Notes. It means you also need to update the integration. You need to re-integrate the form to Google Calendar again every time you edit the form fields to your form.
