Explanation of Jitsi Meet Calendar Add-on permissions for G Suite


Thank you for creating the Jitsi Meet Calendar Add-on. The Add-on requests the following permissions:

  • Run as a Calendar add-on
  • View events on all your calendars
  • Connect to an external service
  • Allow this application to run when you are not present

While running as a Calendar add-on is pretty self explanatory, the “Allow this application to run when you are not present” isn’t. It would be great to add a really simple one line explanation in the extension’s documentation on why specific permissions are requested.

Not sure how this forum works, but a response from someone on the Jitsi team would be great.
