I’m trying to schedule an event on google calendar based on a project date.  I have this:

1. Start Date Pretty:Jan 10, 2023 -5d 5:00pm


Jan 10 as the start date, so I would like to schedule the event for 5 days before at 5pm.  However, testing the action showed even created Jan 10, 2023 at 5:00pm.  It looks like -5d was not read.  Any idea as to how I can work with this?  Thank you in advance.

Hi @sallin 

Good question.

Try putting the -5d after the 5:00pm.

Hi there @sallin , in putting the -5d at the end of the string were you able to get your Zap working as intended? Let us know either way and we’re here to help :]
