Hi, 

I am integrating GoogleApps with our service and would like access to the RRULE column in GoogleApps.  RRULE is a well defined method of setting recurrences, and both we and Google use them.  The Skyvia GoogleApps connection is breaking them out into multiple fields, such as Reccurrence_Type, Reccurrence_Every, etc.  This request is to expose the original RRULE column from the Google Calendar API. 

This will make it unnecessary for us to: reconstruct the RRULE column from your expanded columns, expand our own RRULE column into your columns, as well as decrease errors in recurrences matching between systems.

Thank you,
Louis

Dear Louis,

Is it ok for you if the RPULE column will be added as read-only?

Well, that certainly helps in one direction, making it possible to copy the RRULE value directly into the corresponding RRULE column in our system.  However, going back to Google, if you make it read-only, I'll still have to parse out the real RRULE to try to fill in your expanded fields, which I assume then gets converted to the actually RRULE for committ to the Google API...  It would, obviously, just be easier to expose the actual RRULE column from the Google API with read/write (I personally don't care about the expanded fields that Skyvia has created); but, certainly any access to the RRULE field is better than none.

Thank you,
Louis
