If I already have a calendar event that exists, and I just want to add a link to a Screen meeting to it, I don't have an easy way to generate a unique meeting code to use for that meeting without going through the "Schedule a meeting" flow.
@mustafa-hashmi I've authorized calendar access and I think I tried this, and it told me that the meeting had ended and was unavailable when it came time to use the link. But maybe I had tried to use a link from going through the "scheduled meeting" flow instead, and Screen picked up on the fact that that I removed the event it attempted to schedule?
What are the conditions that Screen will use to consider a meeting as "ended"?
@Dustin Ingram: The room end-time will be adjusted to the end-time of the calendar event. If the event in question is recurring, the room will auto-update its end-time to the next recurring instance end-time when the current one ends.
Please do note that we recently pushed some fixes to calendar event handling, so do try adding a Screen meeting link to either the location or description field of an existing calendar entry again. If you have any issues, please do let me know!
@Dustin Ingram Hi Dustin. A slightly more convenient way may be to simply start a meeting, copy the meeting URL, and paste it into either the location or description field of an existing Google Calendar entry. Screen should pick up the event automatically as long as you've authorized calendar access.
This is of course not ideal, and we'll figure out a better way to schedule meeting rooms / provision URLs for calendar entries.
My company also doesn't allow external calendar integrations and would like to schedule a future meeting without Google calendar.
To add here, my org has a policy to deny Google calendar integration with apps. It would be useful to be able to generate a URL for later that I can pop into the Cal Invite
