SlackSend Channel Message

"Heads up! Team meeting starts in 10 minutes." This Zapier automation will be sure you and your team is ready for the next meeting—or whatever event—with a Slack notification 10 minutes before any scheduled event starts on Google Calendar. You can customize the notification time, too, having this message post 10, 15, 20 or however many minutes or hours you'd like as an advance warning.

How this Google Calendar-Slack integration works

  1. A new event is about to start on Google Calendar
  2. Zapier posts a message about it to your Slack channel at the pre-defined time before the event begins
