How does this automation work?

Efficiently prepare for meetings by automatically creating a Google Doc with all event details using Bardeen. This playbook simplifies the task of documenting meetings and ensures that you can focus on the content rather than the setup. The seamless integration with Google Calendar and Google Docs makes it ideal for professionals who manage multiple events and need quick access to meeting information.

Here's how this workflow automates document creation for meetings:

  • Step 1: Find Event in Google Calendar - Bardeen searches for events in Google Calendar by the name you provide, ensuring you target the right meeting.
  • Step 2: Create a New Google Doc - A new Google Doc is created with the name of the event, providing a dedicated space for meeting notes.
  • Step 3: Merge Event Details - The event description and other relevant details are merged into one text block, ready to be added to the document.
  • Step 4: Add Text to Google Doc - The merged event details are then appended to the top of the new Google Doc, giving you a pre-populated template for note-taking.
  • Step 5: Add Event Info to Google Doc - Additional event information is also added to the document, ensuring you have all necessary details at your fingertips.
  • Step 6: Open Google Doc - Finally, the Google Doc link is opened, allowing you to immediately start working on your meeting preparation.
