I am encountering several of web pages that address email reminders for SharePoint calendars. But, I would like to know how to send an email to someone when any event is added to the calendar. How can I do this or is there a tutorial that shows how to do this? From what I've read so far I need to create a workflow but the workflow options are not clear on what needs to be configured. Thank you.
