Google Calendar Trigger - Deleted events

Hello, I have a question or issue here :slight_smile:

I’m trying to detect the deletion of an event in my google calendar with the new Node “Google Calendar Trigger” but nothing happen/trigger when I delete events. For sure I see something when I update them but not when I delete them… Any idea ? Some option to activate/declare ?

Thanks a lot for your help :slight_smile: !

I would have expected the update event to be triggered when an event is deleted. I never tested it, though. Since you did and it does not work, then that is not the case. I’m going to make this post a feature request. Make sure you upvote it.

Hello Ricardo,

Thanks for your quick answer, it is upvoted :wink:

Ok so after reading some Google API documentation or other automation tool like Pipedream, it is clearly possible and the best thing to do in my opinion would be to add another option in the dropdown menu “Trigger On” => “Event deleted”. I’ve done an “amazing” mockup to show this :smiley:

Love the mock-up :pray: :laughing:

Actually, deleted events have “cancelled” status (see here). So checking the status on update shoud work. But it doesn’t. I tested it.

When use the “Get All” mode, there’s an option to include deleted events into the responce. The problem with the update trigger is that it clearly doesn’t see the deleted evets so it can’t get their updates.
