FlockSend Channel Message

Want a personal assistant to keep you posted about upcoming meetings? This Zapier automation will ensure you and your team is always prepared for the next meeting—or any other event—with a Flock notification 10 minutes before the scheduled event start. You can even customize the notification time, having this message post 10, 15, 30 or however many minutes or hours you'd like before the start of the scheduled event.

How this Google Calendar-Flock integration works

  1. 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.
  2. When it's the designated time before a specified event, Zapier posts a customizable message in Flock.
