"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.
