Hi there,

I’m currently working on a new zap which I’m setting up between gsheet and google calendar.

 

Everything seems to go to the Google Calendar fine, however, the start and end time for some reason are being the same.

 

I’ve also checked the timezones for both Google Calendar and Zapier and they are both correct at GMT+9. 

Any help on this matter would be appreciated. 

 

Best,

Jay

Hi @superbeginner 

 

Is the event created on the wrong date, specifically with the month and day switched?

Regardless of the settings in your Google Calendar, data sent through their API (as Zapier does) must be in MM/DD/YYYY format.
So, if you try to send an event for April 7, 2021 as 07/04/2021, Google Calendar will interpret that as July 4, 2021.
The dates need to be in MM/DD/YYYY format to ensure Google Calendar adds the event to the correct date(s).
If your trigger is sending the data in DD/MM format, you can use a Formatter step to reformat the date.
