How do I update airtable whenever there is an updated calendar invite?

I have trouble using the “new or updated event” trigger for Google Calendar. I want to create a zap using this trigger that will create a new record if there is a new event, but will update a record if there is an updated event. I am not sure how to set this up - wondering if I should use the path feature. Grateful if you can provide some advice on this. Thank you.

Hi @twentyteam 

Good question.

Try these Zap steps:

  1. Trigger: GCal - New/Updated Event
  2. Action: Airtable - Find/Create Record
    1. Logic is to find an existing record, else create a new record
  3. Action: Filter
    1. Check if record was found = true in Step 2
      1. Only proceed if an existing record was found
  4. Action: Airtable - Update Record
    1. Map the Record ID from Step 2

@twentyteam thanks for stopping by the Zapier Community! 

Were you able to give Troy’s suggestion a go? That set up should get you squared away but let us know if you hit any roadblocks!
