Google CalendarCreate Detailed Event

An inbox is just a queue—it's not a calendar. Visualize your important emails over time with this Gmail-Google Calendar integration. After it's set up, any new email you get on Gmail (or only within a certain label) will tell Zapier to create a new Google Calendar event for you, set by default to start at the time the email is received and end 5 minutes later.

Note: you can customize times and dates on Zapier with special commands. Learn more here.

How It Works

  1. A new email is received on Gmail
  2. Zapier automation adds a new event on Google Calendar
