Getting Started

This integration creates a workflow with a Google Calendar trigger and Airtable action. When you configure and deploy the workflow, it will run on Pipedream's servers 24x7 for free.

  1. Select this integration
  2. Configure the Event Start trigger
    1. Connect your Google Calendar account
    2. Select a Calendar ID
    3. Configure timer
  3. Configure the Create Multiple Records action
    1. Connect your Airtable account
    2. Configure baseId
    3. Configure tableId
    4. Configure Records
    5. Configure Typecast
  4. Deploy the workflow
  5. Send a test event to validate your setup
  6. Turn on the trigger


This integration uses pre-built, open source components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Trigger Code

import googleCalendar from "../../google_calendar.app.mjs";

  async run(event) {
    const intervalMs = 1000 * (event.interval_seconds || 300); // fall through to default for manual testing
    const now = new Date();

    const timeMin = now.toISOString();

            ts: +new Date(event.start.dateTime),
    } else {
      console.log("nothing to emit");

Trigger Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI and CLI.

Trigger Authentication

Google Calendar uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Google Calendar account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Google Calendar and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Google Calendar API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

Description:Create one or more records in a table by passing an array of objects containing field names and values as key/value pairs.

Action Code

const chunk = require("lodash.chunk");
const airtable = require("../../airtable.app.js");
const common = require("../common.js");

const BATCH_SIZE = 10; // The Airtable API allows us to update up to 10 rows per request.

module.exports = {
  key: "airtable-create-multiple-records",
  name: "Create Multiple Records",
  description: "Create one or more records in a table by passing an array of objects containing field names and values as key/value pairs.",
  version: "0.1.2",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    records: {
      propDefinition: [
    typecast: {
      propDefinition: [
  async run() {
    const table = this.airtable.base(this.baseId)(this.tableId);

    data = data.map((fields) => ({
    if (!data.length) {
      throw new Error("No Airtable record data passed to step. Please pass at least one record");

    const params = {
      typecast: this.typecast,

    const responses = [];
    for (const c of chunk(data, BATCH_SIZE)) {

        responses.push(...(await table.create(c, params)));

    return responses;

Action Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI.

AirtableairtableappThis component uses the Airtable app.

Provide an array of objects. Each object should represent a new record with the column name as the key and the data to insert as the corresponding value (e.g., passing [{"foo":"bar","id":123},{"foo":"baz","id":456}] will create two records and with values added to the fields foo and id). The most common pattern is to reference an array of objects exported by a previous step (e.g., {{steps.foo.$return_value}}). You may also enter or construct a string that will JSON.parse() to an array of objects.


The Airtable API will perform best-effort automatic data conversion from string values if the typecast parameter is True. Automatic conversion is disabled by default to ensure data integrity, but it may be helpful for integrating with 3rd party data sources.

Action Authentication

Airtable uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your Airtable account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to Airtable APIs in both code and no-code steps.

Airtable uses simple token-based authentication. To generate or manage your API key, visit your account settings.
