I'm excited to use the external calendar feature (described here) to bring my Airtable data into my other scheduling tools. I understand that each record's primary field will be shown as the event titles, but for this to be really useful, I'd like to be able to specify additional fields to map to the other properties in the iCalendar VEVENT spec (here), such as the location and the description.

It would be nice to use a different field for the event title as well, since the primary field is used so heavily elsewhere in Airtable.

I realize I might be able to use an Automation to create and update the events in Google Calendar, but keeping everything in sync this way adds a lot of complexity and brittleness.
