Currently, when you sync Google Calendar to Airtable, the title of the event is the name of the calendar event in Google calendar. Which is fine, until you have a recurring event. So ALL your events in the synced table have the SAME name.

I created a form to link a business activity to the calendar event, but because they are all the same name, I can’t know which event is for which day because the form only shows the titles.

Does someone have a work around?

Are you using Airtable forms to build this form or another form builder?

There are some form builders that will allow you to specify which field your end users see when selecting a record from a drop down.

I know miniextensions is one

I was using the airtable forms. Yeah, I try to stay away from extensions for things like this as it is often cumbersome to be using multiple platforms for a service. I can see this being a workaround though.
