BufferAdd to Buffer

Do you run an events program that you need to share with the public? You can easily post your organisations Google Calendar events to your social media sites by using Buffer. Zapier can automatically capture Google Calendar event starting times and add that event as an item in a Buffer queue a certain amount of time determined by you before the event. Once you set up this Google Calendar to Buffer integration, new events and starting times from that point forward are individually added to your Buffer queue.

How It Works

  1. A new event is scheduled in Google Calendar
  2. Zapier adds an event notification to a Buffer queue

What You Need

  • A Google Calendar account
  • A Buffer account
