I want zapier to send me notifications on Slack when an event from google calendar starts. It seems like for this use-case read permission for google calendar should be enough but zapier asks for editing and deleting. Doesn’t google calendar have an option for see permissions only? If it does what’s the reason for edit permissions in this case?

Hi @Aleksandr 

Check out the available triggers/actions/searches for GCal: https://zapier.com/apps/google-calendar/integrations#triggers-and-actions

Some of these require more than read permissions.

 

About Google Calendar's Integration

  • Admin/owner permissions - You need to have permissions to edit or add events to the calendar you wish to build Zaps on before being able to use the Google Calendar integration.
  • Paid/versioned account - Google Calendar is free to use, so you don't have to be on a specific paid/versioned account with them to access it.
  • Custom field support - Google Calendar does not have custom fields.
