How do I automate a Form?

I have a form in smartsheet that some of our Attendings will be using to fill out required shift information for payment processing. I know that on the base sheet I can set up an automation to request an update weekly which is what I need, but does that apply to the sheet the form info transfers to once submitted? Or will it send the form itself? I know I can copy the link and share the form with the Attendings, but as a step in streamlining the process and saving time, I would like the form portion that they'll be filling out to be automated.
