Announcing a new Google Calendar integration

It’s safe to say that Google Calendar is an app most people swear by.

Its ease of use, as well as its ability to clearly display meetings, appointments, activities, and events in a single place, has helped the calendar app become an integral part of professional and personal life.

That’s why we’re excited to announce that JotForm users can now integrate their forms with a Google Calendar to

  • Create calendar events when a form is submitted
  • Add multiple events using the same information from a submitted form (a single submission can be mapped to multiple Google Calendar events)
  • Create multiple events for different or shared calendars in the same Google account

This integration is especially great because users can fully customize calendar event details using information from submitted forms. For example, an event’s title, description, location, and start and end time can be mapped to form fields.

But before using this integration, be sure to include an event start time. If you don’t do this, the integration won’t work. Note that the event end time is optional. Users can either map an event’s end time to a form field, or use a fixed duration event, such as 5 min, 30 min, 60 min, or all day.

Check out our short video and screenshots to get started in just a few simple steps!
