Hello,

 

I have created a form that once you push submit it sends an email (using javascript) with the filled pdf. Would there be anyway to get this email to also contain a calendar invite?

 

I just cannot figure this one out at all.

Thank you,

Nick

The iCalendar format is just plain text. In theory it should be possible to create such a file from scratch and attach it to the PDF when submitting it. You can't attach it to the email itself, though.

Acrobat/Reader supports SMTP mail protocol. This mail system does not support Outlook's calendar feature nor any of the many other calendar systems.

Thank you everyone for responding quickly. I just was not sure if this was possible but was asked by my higher ups so had to follow up :).

 

Have a wonderful day everyone!
