Google Calendars and Google Events
The main components of a Google Calendar API are events and calendars. Calendars are a collection of events including relevant metadata such as name, time zone, and others. Every Google accounts consist of a primary calendar, which contains the email address of the users as the name. The calendar cannot be detected by users, however, can be shared with others. Users can create secondary calendars and they can be deleted, modified, and shared with many users. This includes the following:
- Work and personal calendars
- Shared calendars including several people from the same company or team to events
- Calendars belonging to other people in the Gsuite organization of users
- Custom calendars created by users for tracking specific kinds of events
The Google Calendar API as stated in our online help with assignment on Google Calendar API topics includes a CalendarList. You can use the CalendarList endpoint if you want to access the user-specific properties of a calendar including default reminders as well as foreground/background colors. You can use a calendar object if you need to delete and create calendars of global properties, which are shared with all users along with the access to a calendar such as default time zone and title.
Events are the objects, which are linked with a specific date range and time and it includes information such as description, title, attachments, location, and attendees. These can be set for a particular time span or for the entire day. All events on Google Calendars are associated with one or more than one calendars and the events have access to the initial copy of an event.
