"Heads up! Team meeting starts in 5 minutes." This Zapier automation will be sure your team is ready for its next meeting with a HipChat notification 5 minutes before your meeting starts. You can customize the notification time, too, having this message post 10, 15, 20 or however many minutes you'd like before the meeting.

How It Works

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, such as:

Google Calendar search query example

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

What You Need

  • Google Apps account with active Google Calendar
  • HipChat account with access to the room you wish to post in
