RescueTimeLog a Highlight Event

Meetings are the bane of productivity. Yet it’s often hard to really understand how much time they’re taking away from meaningful work. Set up this automation to log any Google Calendar event with the text ‘Meeting’ or ‘call’ to your RescueTime Highlights. That way, you can get a clear insight into how often meetings are taking away your time and adjust your availability accordingly.

How this Google Calendar-RescueTime integration works

  1. A Google Calendar with 'meeting' or 'call' in the event description starts
  2. Zapier logs this event to your RescueTime Highlights
