Updating an Outlook event from Google Sheets

I have a Google Sheets file creating Outlook events when a row is added or updated.

 

When a row is added, a new Outlook event is added.

When a row is updated, a new Outlook event is added.

When a row is deleted, nothing happens.

 

  1. When a row is updated, I’d like to update the corresponding Outlook event instead of adding a new one.
  2. When a row is deleted, I’d like Outlook to delete the corresponding event.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks

Hi @cfcmarketing Thanks for your question! 

I’m afraid that it’s not currently possible to update an even using the Outlook integration, though we do have a feature request for that addition. I've added you as another vote for this addition. I don't have an ETA of when or if this will happen, but we will definitely email you if it does become a reality. 

 

For deleting Events, we generally don’t add actions that will delete items as it’s a little too risky - if a user makes a mistake setting one up, they could lose data permanently.
