When using Google Calendar as the output Zap, one of the fields is Colour. It wants a number which corresponds to one of the available calendar colours. Wondering if there is a list somewhere showing which number maps to which colour?

It seems that it’s looking for a single digit number which maps to one of a limited menu of available colours, not the hex code or any kind of direct colour colour identifier.

In the Zap step, underneath the Color field, it contains additional info including the link above.

Thank you! I did read that article but those colour codes don’t work directly. To use them in a zap, you have to convert them but I finally found the chart to convert them.

You can use a Formatter Lookup Table step to do the conversion between hex to ID: https://zapier.com/help/doc/how-use-formatter-functions#using-the-lookup-table
