To use the Google Calendar modules, you must have a Google account. You can create an account at

Refer to the Google Calendar API documentation for a list of available endpoints.

Connect Google Calendar to Make

To establish the connection in Make:

  1. Log in to your Make account, add a Google Calendar module to your scenario, and click Create a Connection.

  2. Optional: In the Connection name field, enter a name for the connection.

  3. Optional: Switch on the Show advanced settings and enter your Google Cloud Platform Project client credentials. See the Create and configure a Google Cloud Console project for Google Calendar section below.

  4. Click Sign in with Google and select your Google account.

  5. If prompted, authenticate your account and confirm access.

You have successfully established the connection. You can now edit your scenario and add more Google Calendar modules. If your connection requires reauthorization at any point, follow the connection renewal steps here.


You may receive a connection error if your Google account has multiple APIs enabled in Google Cloud Platform. If so, create a new Google Cloud Platform Project and try to establish the connection again.

Common Problems

It is possible to trigger a scenario a specified amount of time before an event with the help of standard Google Calendar email reminders and the Webhooks > Custom mailhook module.

  1. Use the Google Calendar > Update an event module to add an email reminder to your event:

  2. Create a new scenario starting with the Webhooks > Custom mailhook module. Copy the mailhook's email address. Save the scenario and execute it.

  3. In Gmail, redirect the Google Calendar email reminders to the mailhook's email address:

    1. Open your Gmail settings.

    2. Open the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.

    3. Click Add a forwarding address.

    4. Paste the copied mailhook's email address, press "Next", confirm by pressing "Proceed" in the popup window and close the dialog by pressing "OK".

    5. In Make, switch to the new scenario which should finish its execution by receiving the confirmation email.

    6. Click the bubble above the module to inspect the module's output.

    7. Expand the Text item and search for the Confirmation code:

    8. Copy the Confirmation code.

    9. In Gmail, paste the Confirmation code in the edit box and click Verify:

    10. Open the Filters and Blocked Addresses tab.

    11. Click Create a new filter:

    12. Set up a filter for all emails coming from [email protected] and click Create filter:

    13. Tick the "Forward it to:" checkbox and choose the mailhook's email address from the list:

    14. Click Create filter.

  4. In Make, you can add the Text parser > Match pattern module after the Webhooks > Custom mailhook module to parse the email's HTML code and obtain any information you need. For example, you can configure a module like this to obtain the event's ID:

    Pattern: <meta itemprop="eventId/googleCalendar" content="(?<evenitID>.*?)"/>

    Text: The HTML content item output from the Webhooks > Custom mailhook module:


Both modules are deprecated. To iterate desired values, please use the Flow Control > Iterator module.
