How does this automation work?

Effective meeting management often involves a variety of tools, and Google's suite of products facilitates this process seamlessly. This Bardeen playbook takes advantage of Google Calendar and Google Docs to help you stay organized for your meetings. It creates a new Google Doc for your current event, named after the event itself, which can then be used for taking notes, drafting agendas, or sharing information with participants in real-time.

Here's how this workflow simplifies meeting preparation:

  • Step 1: Identify Current Event - Bardeen retrieves the details of the current event in your Google Calendar, ensuring that the document matches your immediate schedule.
  • Step 2: Create Google Doc - Utilizing a Bardeen action, a new Google Doc is created with a placeholder for the title. This is the foundation for your meeting notes.
  • Step 3: Name Google Doc - The title of the current Google Calendar event is fetched and used to name the newly created Google Doc, which is then ready for use in a new tab.

How to run the workflow

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.
