Whether you want to be alerted days or hours before an event, this Google Calendar OmniFocus integration can help you prepare everything you need. Indicate the lead time you need before a Google Calendar event starts and, when that moment comes, a new task will be created on OmniFocus for you, making sure nothing ever sneaks up on you.

How It Works

  1. A new event approaches on Google Calendar
  2. Zapier automatically creates a task on OmniFocus
