How does this automation work?

Timeliness in professional settings is critical, but unexpected delays can occur. Bardeen's workflow automation tool helps you communicate efficiently with event participants when you're running late. Using Google Calendar and Slack, this playbook sends automated, personalized messages to Slack users, ensuring that your colleagues are informed without manual intervention, saving time and maintaining a professional demeanor even when delays happen.

Here's how this workflow keeps your team updated on Slack if you're running late for a meeting:

  • Step 1: Identify current event - Bardeen locates the current event in your Google Calendar, identifying the meeting you are scheduled to attend next.
  • Step 2: Send Slack message - Once the current event is identified, Bardeen sends a personalized message on Slack to each participant, informing them that you will be running late.
  • Step 3: Match event participants with Slack users - Bardeen cross-references the event participants with Slack users to ensure the message is sent to the correct individuals associated with the meeting.
