Challenges and Solutions
Maxwell(name changed), who is one of the users of Form Director wrote to us asking the
"Hello, I am using the Form Director extension to automatically create Google Calendar events out of my Google Form responses. The events are successfully being created, but I am not seeing invites being sent to the Guests that I included in the automation. I am attempting to automatically invite an Outlook calendar (my work's email is Outlook based).
Can you help me resolve this?".
For Maxwell's use case, We suggested him to enable sending invitations. For this he need to enable the "Send Invitation" switch in his Google Calendar configuration. After doing this he is able to automatically send email invitations.
