Receive an email reminder 2 hours before a Google Calendar event starts

"Call with Ben starts in 2 hours!" Stay on top of your schedule with reminders in your inbox for upcoming meetings. With this Zapier automation, you can set up a customized email notification that includes the event summary, description and more. You can customize the notification time, too, having this email sent 3, 4, 5 or however many hours/minutes you'd like before the meeting.

How It Works

Zapier keeps an eye on your Google Calendar—either at a specific calendar or an upcoming event that matches a search query on a calendar, such as:

When it's the designated time before a specified event, Zapier sends you an email.
