How to bulk edit Google Calendar events
Toys like this that save you time is why I love coding and of course good APIs
A while back I imported events from Facebook calendar to my private Google Calendar. That would be a great thing if the import didn’t make all of the birthdays all-day events that displayed to others that I was busy all day. To fix that and not to have to manually edit all of the events I wrote a short script. The best part, you can run it from your google drive account.
Follow the steps below to do it yourself:
- Head over to drive.google.com
- Click +New, then more, then Apps Script
- Copy this code to the provided console
5. click run
This script is meant to delete events but you can do whatever you want. For more details on how to edit the events you iterate over you can find in the API reference.
Ps. If you try to do too many edits/writes/deletes google might block you. Just click run again and keep clicking until all events you want are removed/edited
