Some Google Apps Calendar, having fun with your users!


Several of my users have been reporting issues with their calendar entries and room bookings missing mysteriously, here is a neat and simple trick to see the deleted events or all events that are suppose to be there 

https://www.google.com/calendar/feeds/email@domain.com/private/full?start-min=2014-01-23T00:00:00&start-max=2014-01-24T23:59:59&prettyprint=true&showdeleted=true&showhidden=true

just replacing the above three creates a RESTful request which helps us to get an atom feed with *all* the events in the calendar, showdeleted and showhidden parameters are set to true. 

email@domain.com ==> is the email id or the calendar id of a resource
and the start and end date. 









Crash course on REST from stackoverflow

A website's RESTful is queried to find out information on a user, specified by a numerical ID.
Request Type: GET
http://www.api.website.com/users/12345
Returns, in a format for this example:

{"username" : "theuser",
 "userid"   :  12345,
 "first"    : "George",
 "last"     : "Washington"}
