If you follow the tutorial Quickstart: Managing Responses for Google Forms, you'll notice that it references calendar events using an event id (event.getId()).

This an email address of the form gkp8em6kg4uebp44ia3qh6e7he5@google.com

If I already have a pre-existing calendar event, how do I get its id?

Preferably looking for a solution that doesn't involve Google Apps Scripts and can be done via UI alone.

It needs to be in this exact format because I plan on (eventually) creating a Google Apps Script to reference it.


This was asked on Stack Overflow.

Easiest solution is to follow this answer:

  1. Go to the event debugging URL at https://www.google.com/calendar/render?gsessionid=OK&eventdeb=1
  2. Double click to view the affected event.
  3. Select the drop down menu 'More Actions'.
  4. Click on the 'Troubleshooting Info'.
  5. Copy the text that appears and paste it in your reply to support.

Then append @google.com to it.
