How does this automation work?

With Bardeen, you can seamlessly integrate Google Calendar with Google Docs to automate your meeting preparation. This playbook creates a Google Doc named after an event and adds the link to the event description in Google Calendar. This productivity hack ensures that all your meeting notes are organized and easily accessible, freeing up your time to focus on more strategic activities.

Here's how this workflow works:

  1. Find Events: Bardeen starts by fetching the events from Google Calendar. You will specify the event for which the Google Doc should be created.
  2. Open Link Pattern: This step involves opening a link pattern using Bardeen's Quick Access feature.
  3. Get Event Title: Here, Bardeen retrieves the title of your specified event from Google Calendar. This title will be used to name the Google Doc.
  4. Get Redirected URL: Bardeen then captures the redirected URL, which is the link to the newly created Google Doc.
  5. Add Description to Event: Finally, Bardeen updates the event description in Google Calendar with the link to the Google Doc. This makes the document easily accessible from the event details.

By automating this process with Bardeen, you can enhance personal productivity and make your meetings more effective.
