I create google calendar event and i choose “conference” = Yes.  but the conference default setting is Hangout,  but i want it to choose zoom.  as you can see in the attached, I have two conference options (e.g. as my google calendar has zoom plugin).   How can I make zappier to set it to zoom?  there is a custom field, what settings to put there ?  see attached screenshots

Hi @ronaldlee ,

Thanks for contacting us- happy to help!

This is a bit confusing as the Google Calendar Event Integration only provides the option to use Hangout as the conference type. To provide a Zoom link on your GoogleCal events, you will need to actually start with Zoom as your trigger, the use GoogleCal as your action!

 

This article will walk you through the steps to take to set up this flow: Add Zoom Meeting Links to Google Calendar Events

 

Give this a go and please let us know if you have any additional questions!
