Google Calendar - how is it working now?

Hi All

Back in the days you had ‘search’ string that you could use for creating specific calendar events, so you could have multiple different events in the same calendar, that it would react differently to…

I guess I can build the google_calendars.yaml file by hand, and recreate the old functionality, but I hope that there is a ‘new’ way of doing this, as it would be quite silly to just abandon functionality.
But as I read the documentation, it has now gotten way more complicated, and you have to do value_template stuff instead of simple ‘search’, is that really so?
And doing the automations in node-red would make that evenly complicated?
Is that really the way forward, removing easy functions, and holding the ‘puritan’ banner high, forcing users to figure out value_template functionallity?
