How do I change the color of a Google Calendar event based on a specific word?

In the update event in Google Calendar action, I want to change the color of an event when the description of this event include a specific word such as “Colour"

Is this right because I can’t make it work. Should I use the find an event action before that ? 



Many thanks

Hey there @Lucas Sabatier,

I think we can get away without adding the “Find Event” step. That said, the “Event” field looks for the Event ID. What you want to do here is to map the Event ID coming from the trigger step as a custom value to the “Event” field.

Here’s what the Event ID looks like:

Hopefully, this helps! 😊
