Create a Google Doc for the current event

This playbook will create a meeting note in Google Docs with the name of the current Google Calendar event and open it in a new tab.

Bardeen automates your repetitive tasks without code.
Install the Chrome extension for free.

Whether it’s a meeting with a client, a critical brainstorming session with your team, or a weekly standup meeting, taking notes is an excellent way to summarize and remember important details of that meeting.

This automation will make note-taking for meetings a lot smoother. It will find the name of your current Google Calendar event, create a Google Doc with the event’s name, and add the link to the Doc in the event’s description. All with just one click! 

This way you can save time and focus on taking notes.

Pro Tip: Use the builder to customize this automation further. For instance, you can add a trigger to run this automation before each meeting automatically. You can also combine this automation with other playbooks like Share Google Drive file with the current meeting participants via email and Send the current page as a PDF via email to meeting participants to save even more time.

Here’s how to set it up:

Step 1: Pin the playbook and integrate Google Calendar

First, click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to save this automation. You will be redirected to download the browser extension if you don’t have the Bardeen extension installed. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Google Calendar and Google Drive, if you haven’t done so already. 

Step 2: Run the playbook

Run the playbook for your current Google event. 

You can also edit the playbook to make it work your way. For example, you can share meeting notes in Slack, attach them to an Asana task, or use OpenAI to generate a meeting summary. 

Explore more integration alternatives for Google Calendar, Google Docs, or the integration of both, or adapt the playbook to better suit your individualized workflow preferences.
