Some events need only a few minutes' worth of preparation, while others are set up months in advance. Whatever the case, this Zap can help ensure everything gets done in time for the big date. After being set up, it will trigger at the preset time before an event is about to start on Google Calendar, automatically adding a new row on Excel so your processes can take over with time to spare (this Zap will trigger the day before an event starts by default, but can be customized.)

Note (Excel): This integration will only work with an Excel spreadsheet on OneDrive for Business

How this Google Calendar-Excel integration works

  1. A new event approaches on Google Calendar
  2. Zapier automatically adds a row to an Excel spreadsheet
