Reminder Automation based on the Forgetting Curve

I am currently working on a project where I would like to set up automated reminders based on the Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve to maximize information retention for my team members. I plan to use the following reminder intervals: 1 day, 1 week, and 3 weeks after the initial learning event.

I aim to create a system within Smartsheets that calculates these intervals and triggers reminders accordingly. I would appreciate any advice, tips, or suggestions on how to best achieve this.

Is there a built-in function or an existing integration with Smartsheets that can help me apply these specific intervals based on the inverse of the Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve principles to my project?

Can you provide guidance on setting up an automation workflow that calculates the 1-day, 1-week, and 3-week intervals and sends reminders accordingly or some variation?

Are there any templates or examples available that demonstrate how to implement these specific intervals in Smartsheets?

I'm looking forward to any help or suggestions that can be provided. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance!
