Invalid Argument: Timezone. Should Be of Type: String

Some of our users have reported receiving an Invalid argument: timeZone. Should be of type: String error when trying to merge events with their calendars. This is caused by a mismatch in timezones between the spreadsheet and the calendar you are trying to sync with. To fix this, you will need to manually change the timezone settings on each to match.

Note: Google does not list the same timezone options for each of their applications, so you may have to choose a different city than yours that has the same timezone.
