Want to get a digest of your most important info right before a meeting? Just build your own Digest Zap to gather info automatically, and set it to release the data manually. Then, set up this Zap, which will watch for your upcoming Google Calendar appointments and send you the correct info right before them. It's especially handy if you add a filter to watch only for specific events.
