I’m trying to set up a Zap pulling Google Calendar data from a specific calendar. It finds the calendar but when it tries to retrieve data it’s only retrieving generic test data and not actual data. This is what I get: 

id

12345

test@example.com

Test Event

end__dateTime

2020-07-21T16:55:15-04:00

Can you send a screenshot of your set up? 

Hello, 

I have exactly the same problem as wiseguy above. Impossible to retrieve a true event that exists. The test data is always the same (see below) : an event that does not exist. 

Thank you very much for your help in advance.

Hi @Maxime!

Google Calendar can be a little tricky in terms of getting a data sample. If you’re using Event Start or Event End as the trigger can you try doing the following:

Event Start: Create a test event that has started within the past hour. Then re-test the trigger step.

Event End: Create a test event that has ended within the past hour. Then re-test the trigger step.

Could you give that a shot to see if it helps you get a real data sample?
