Problem with date: Missing value of required parameter ‘start’

Hi Everybody.
I really need some help as I am GOING CRAZY HERE.

I am working for the past 2 hours on the following scenario


The problem is the date. I keep getting an error * Missing value of required parameter ‘start’.

My google sheet is based on Italian/European format , it means that the date is created with this format: DD-MM-YYYYY

I understood that MAKE can’t deal with that and therefore it leaves the date field blank

Can you explain me - in simple terms - what module (tool?) or what command I have to digit to make it work?

Thank you


Paste the screenshot of tools “set variable” module result and input of google calendar module…

Thank you Pierre
where you suggest to place that?
In a tool module or in the calendar?

BTW Is not working…any idea?

shall i need the tool or I could work also without it? like this?

I managed to process the date BUT I need also the time and I keep getting the error. Unfortunately there is not start time field for the event time in the calendar module… :frowning: and so I have to integrate it in the DATE variable

Hi @danielem

I think in your google sheet the date is in format MM/DD/YYYY. Calendar in start date is date column. So please use parse function
{{parseDate(1.Data di Arrivo; “MM/DD/YYYY”)}}

Hi All

solved this!!! after so many tests…

This is the command to put in Start Date
{{parseDate(1.3; “DD/MM/YYYYTHH:mm”)}}

As far as I get you must tell the module in what format he receives the DATA/TIME info…mine came with this format dd/mm/yyy

Thanks everybody
