Have a "Happy Birthday!" email draft waiting in Gmail the day before a client's birthday

Instead of fully automating a client birthday greeting , use this Zapier automation to create an email draft the day before a contact's birthday. This gives you the chance to add a personal note and send the message when you're ready.

How it Works

  1. Keep your client birthdays on a Google Calendar, using the summary line for the contact's first name and description field for their email address
  2. The day before your client's birthday, Zapier sees the upcoming Google Calendar event and using the aforementioned fields completes a template and add a draft email to your inbox

What You Need

  • Gmail account
  • Google Calendar dedicated to client birthdays
