Using google calendar "free/busy" state in Zap?

Hi all,

 

Relatively new to Zapier and am struggling with this one.

 

I’d like to perform a Zap on google calendar. However, I’d like the Zap to run only if this event is marked as “busy” on my calendar. 

 

However, when I pull a TEST EVENT into Zapier, I see many variable, but I don’t see the free/busy state among the variables that are getting pulled in (see below). Am I missing something, or is the free/busy state just something that Zapier can not get from google calendar?

 

Thanks!

Yev

 

These are the variable I see:

kind: calendar#event

Just figures it out! It’s the “transparency: transparent” component.

 

It exists for “free” events and doesn’t exist for “busy” events!
