An editorial calendar for planning is one thing, but it's also important to know when posts actually happen. This WordPress-Google Calendar integration can capture everything the moment it goes live. It will trigger whenever you create a new WordPress post, adding a new event to your Google Calendar so you can keep track of each one you publish.

*Note: this Zap can also be used to keep track of the time you have to prepare a post—create it as a draft, use the current time as the start date to the event, and then add as much time as you need to publish the post for the end-date to create a multi-day event.
