I usually need to involve some of my colleagues but they aren't directly involved in what I do, so I usually forget to invite them!

Is there a way to have default invitees for any meeting in Google calendar? This way I can remove them if their presence isn't necessary. Also inviting them by mistake isn't as harmful as completely forgetting them.

You will need to study Google Calendar API, in order to create or modify calendar events.

You might also need to study the Advanced Calendar Service, described as:

The advanced Calendar service allows you to use the public Google Calendar API in Apps Script. Much like Apps Script's built-in Calendar service, this API allows scripts to access and modify the user's Google Calendar, including additional calendars that the user is subscribed to. In most cases, the built-in service is easier to use, but this advanced service provides a few extra features, including setting the background color for individual events.

  • Thanks but how can this automate adding attendees for me? I know that I can write app script code in a Google sheet. But how can I do this for my Calendar? Apr 5, 2021 at 12:17
