I like to create out-of-office events in Google Calendar based on approved out-of-office for my my personal account in BambooHR.

I like to create the event in Google Calendar as an event of type outOfOffice (see Google Calendar API at I expect this to enable/trigger Google Calendar features such as automatically displaying the out-of-office status in Google Mail and Google Chat, and automatically decline new events.

In Zapier, I have a working Zap to create regular events in Google Calendar based on approved out-of-office in BambooHR.

Are you aware if it is possible to create a new Google Calendar event with field eventType set to outOfOffice? If this is possible in Zapier, I would love to learn how to :-)

Dear @Troy Tessalone !
Thank you so much! I will try the Webhooks and Code apps!

Hi @Daniel Schömer 

You’d likely have to leverage the GCal API to use the Event Type setting.


App APIs can be used in Zaps with the Webhooks app or Code app.
