How does this automation work?

Efficiently scheduling and setting up meetings can be a cumbersome process, especially when it involves multiple participants. Bardeen simplifies this task by automating the creation of a Google Calendar event with a Zoom call, directly involving the recipients of an active email thread. This can be particularly helpful for businesses looking to streamline their meeting setup process, thereby saving time and improving productivity.

Here's how this workflow sets up a Zoom meeting through Google Calendar from an email thread:

  • Step 1: Identify email thread - Bardeen finds the current email thread in Gmail, ensuring all participants are captured for the meeting invitation.
  • Step 2: Create Google Calendar event - A new event is created in Google Calendar with the desired title and start time, setting the stage for the meeting.
  • Step 3: Generate Zoom link - A Zoom meeting is automatically generated for the newly created calendar event, providing an easy and reliable video conferencing solution.
  • Step 4: Update event description - The Zoom meeting details are added to the Google Calendar event description, centralizing all information for participants.
