Hi @pisanus 

Good question.

Please post detailed screenshots with how your Zap steps are configured to help give us more context.

Hi and welcome to the Community, @pisanus! 👋

I’m not seeing any options for the New Event (Google Calendar) trigger that would allow you to enter in the event description. Are you using the New Event Matching Search trigger and attempting to use multiple lines of text in the Search Term field? 

Or is it more that when more that when multiple lines of text have been entered for an event’s description, when that event triggers the Zap it causes an error? The error seems like it’s saying that the issue is that it’s not expecting to receive a <br> tag (linebreak). Is there a HTML <br> tag at the start of the description for the events it’s erroring on?

If so, can you try not including a <br> tag at the start of the description, on another event (with multiple lines of text), and see if it’s then able to trigger on that without error?

Keen to help get to the bottom of this so please do keep us in the loop on how that goes!
