It's tough enough to plan an event without needing to remind everyone about it as well. From now on, let Zapier perform that role while you focus on details. Set up this Google Calendar-Gmail integration and, whenever an event is about to start, we'll send out an email from Gmail at the pre-defined time before it begins to no one forgets your dates again.

How It Works

  1. An event approaches on Google Calendar
  2. Zapier automatically sends an email from Gmail
