How does this automation work?

Bardeen's Autobook feature enhances your meeting preparedness by seamlessly integrating with Google Calendar and Notion. As your meeting approaches, the Autobook ensures you're ready to join the call and have your notes page at your fingertips. This process eliminates the rush of locating meeting links and note pages, allowing you to enter your meetings organized and focused.

Here's how this workflow prepares you for your meetings:

  • Step 1: Event start trigger - When your next Google Calendar event is about to start, this step is triggered, ensuring you don’t miss any important meetings.
  • Step 2: Join the meeting - Bardeen automatically opens the meeting link from your Google Calendar event, saving you from having to search for it.
  • Step 3: Find Notion pages - This command searches for Notion pages within a specified database so you can quickly access your relevant notes.
  • Step 4: Update or Add Notion page - If necessary, Bardeen will update or add information to your Notion page, keeping your notes up to date.
  • Step 5: Open Notion page - Finally, the relevant Notion page is opened, allowing you to start taking notes as soon as the meeting begins.

How to run the workflow

Never miss a meeting again!

This automation will join the meeting link in your Google Calendar 1 minute before it starts. Additionally, it will open a Notion event page in a separate tab for notes. If the event page isn’t already in Notion, Bardeen will create it and open it.

This automation's trigger is "When next event starts" and it consists of 4 actions.

  1. Join meeting
  2. Find Notion page
  3. If it's found, it'll open the Notion page
  4. If it's not found, it'll add and open a page in Notion

Step 1: Setup your Notion calendar

First, you will need to set up a Notion database for your meetings. You can create one from scratch or duplicate our template optimized for this use case.

Step 2: Pin the Autobook and set it up

Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this Autobook saved to your autobooks.

Then we need to map data from Google Calendar to Notion.

To do this, hover over the autobook card and “Open Autobook in Builder.”

From here, customize the “Action 4: Update or Add Notion page” action. Enter your Notion database and map the data fields using “custom field mapping.”

On Default, this autobook maps data from the event's Summary, Meeting Link, Description, State and Calendar Link. You can customize it for your own use-case.

Save the Autobook and close the builder.

Step 3: Run the Playbook

Click on the Autobook card to activate it and watch the magic happen!

💡Pro Tip: You can also filter the type of events that you want to get automatically opened.  You can head to the "Trigger: When next event starts" and specify on the argument which events you want, such as “Accepted," "Confirmed," or“Rejected” events. By default, this Autobook opens all your calendar events that are not "Rejected".
