Add Events to the App-USER's Calendar Using Dynamic New-Draft Event Links

AppSheet can use a Google Calendar as a data source, but the app-owner is always the ‘Meeting Organizer’, or owner of the event.

What if you want to create an event in the app-user’s calendar?

I found a free webtool to build custom links to a new calendar event. You can specify event details, then generate a link that will open a new draft event in the app-user’s calendar.

https://www.google.com/calendar/render?action=TEMPLATE&sf=true&output=xml&text=TEST_TITLE&location=TEST_LOCATION&details=TEST_DETAILS&dates=20200910T120000Z/20200910T130000Z

Similar URLs can be built with an AppSheet action to ‘Go to a website’, using values from the current row for Title, Location, Time, etc.
