Lightning Sync: See Attendee Changes Made Through the API on Google Calendars

Now when changes are made to the Attendees field through the API, it’s easier for sales reps to see those changes on their Google calendars. That’s because changes sync from Salesforce automatically. Previously, changes made through the API didn’t sync unless triggered by a change to an additional field on the event. Considerations for attendee status sync (Accepted, Declined, or No response) still apply.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience, Salesforce Classic, and all versions of the mobile app in Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

How: Attendee statuses sync from Google to Salesforce, but not from Salesforce to Google. Be wary of creating API flows that update attendee status in Salesforce for users set up to sync both ways. Eventually the original Google status overrides the update made in Salesforce.
