For example:

Hazme saber si puedes venir

"Let me know" is always translated into Spanish as:

Hazme (tú) saber
Hágame (usted) saber
Hacedme (vosotros) saber
Háganme (ustedes) saber

Never "dejar".

A pleasure.

¿Por qué no "permitir"?

Sí, es cierto, chileno. Ahí se me fue la pinza. Con permitir está bien; pero no con "dejar".

Un saludo.

Where I live I think a lot people would say me avisa or avísame or something like that. At least to my ears, hazme saber sounds awkward in Caribbean Spanish, which is the Spanish I hear most.

En España, también es más común utilizar el verbo "avisar". Sólo prentendí indicar que, como locución, ésa era la equivalente en español.

Un saludo.

En México diríamos coloquialmente "me dices/avisas si puedes venir".

Maybe, the simpler form would be: "Dime si puedes venir (a la fiesta)" if it's informal, but if you're writing to your boss, maybe, you can say: "Permítame saber si puede venir (a la fiesta)" using usted.
Hope this helps.
