GMail Calendar Integration

Hello Experts,

Could anyone point me in the right direction on how to get started with GMail Calendar Integration.

I'm building an internal web application using PHP/MySQL, JS/jQuery, and I need to schedule follow-up appointments within my app.  So, within my app I need to:

-Have a button that would open a popup showing the availability from GMail Calendar.

-Be able to book the appointment within the popup, or otherwise. But, still have it set within GMail, returning the date, time, and any type of Appointment ID.

-At a later time, reschedule the appointment, if needed. That's why I'm thinking I need to have an Appointment ID returned from GMail?

I'm also aware that for this, I may need to use AJAX, which I have done only in JS, but I'm hoping to save and keep any creds within PHP for security purposes?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Scott. I usually tend to keep issues seperately, but was looking for some theory, which you provided.

Thank you.

What may not be clear with the API is there are some steps.  First you have to set up credentials in google console. https://console.developers.google.com/apis/dashboard

Once all that is set up, your php code has to first submit your credentials to get a token. Then cache the token and submit it in each subsequent request.  Getting through the initial api example will be the hardest part.

JavaScript is a dynamic, object-based language commonly used for client-side scripting in web browsers. Recently, server side JavaScript frameworks have also emerged. JavaScript runs on nearly every operating system and in almost every mainstream web browser.
