Overview
Designed for use with Google Forms, the Calendar Event Automator add-on will create a new calendar event each time a form submission is received or certain conditions are met. 

Within minutes you'll be able to: 
* Create a form to capture information that is required for the calendar event
* Include routing conditions (e.g only create an event if certain conditions are met); and
* Automatically create the calendar event.

Ideal for time-off / annual leave requests. This add-on can be used on it's own or in conjunction with the Form Approvals add-on (to create a calendar event once a request is approved).

Use << and >> markers to populate the Event title or Description. For example, if your spreadsheet column heading is "Email Address" you would use the marker <<Email Address>>

This add-on is completely Free to use, with no upgrades required. If you find it useful, we just ask that you please leave us a review!

Can't seem to find a way to run it manually (without waiting 1 hour or submitting a form). Also, is there a way to set the duration of an event without manually putting in an end time? Should be a way to have it automatically create 1 hour or 30 minute events.

Using it to automate sending "Approved" requests from Forms and posting to our admin calendar. You can customize the calendar entry by selecting which fields from the Sheet/Row will appear in the Event title, description, start/end date, etc. It takes some work to setup (as with most worthwhile things), but then it's on auto-mode the whole time after. So essentially, you can set it to check if a certain field equals the value you set (in my case, "Approved"), before it actually does anything. So that field can be "In Process", "Waiting", or what-not and Calendar Event Automator won't do anything. The developer, Robert, is quite responsive to support requests. Thanks for this add-on!

This is a great tool that we use at work to automatically put approved time off/out of office requests on our shared google calendar. Used in combination with a google form and the Form Approvals add-on allowed us to easily set up a process for employees to request time off or training, route their request to their supervisor for approval, send a copy of info to our admin if there was a cost associated with a training, AND automatically add it to our calendar. Very good stuff! I gave a presentation about this and other tools that help automate workflows with low/no cost software at my annual professional trade group.

Completely useless, not automated at all, you must input the event details into the addon yourself before it will show up on the calendar. Try to define fields it should AUTOMATICALLY pull from just results in it putting up an event with what you put in the fields. No user guide, no documentation, help link leads to an unrelated addon site. Don't bother with this.

Hi Developer, I realised that my event was created but disappeared from the calendar afterwards?

Perfect for creating calendar events for our school. We have also used it in another spreadsheet to create events when form submissions are approved (using Form Approvals). Best of all this add-on is free to use.

Not exactly a review but more of a question. Has anyone had problems with their events being created a day before you schedule them? Thanks in advance.
