How does this automation work?

Bardeen's automation playbook helps you stay informed about your upcoming meetings by sending a curated list to your Slack channel every Monday. This workflow is especially beneficial for busy professionals and teams who need to efficiently manage their time and prepare for the week ahead. By automatically gathering details of the week's meetings, including descriptions and join links, you ensure that all team members are aligned and can access the necessary information directly from Slack.

Here's how this workflow sends a list of the upcoming week's meetings to Slack:

  • Step 4: Format date and time - The extracted start dates of the meetings are converted to a readable text format.
  • Step 5: Prepare the Slack message - The details of each meeting are merged into a single message in preparation for sending it to Slack.
  • Step 6: Send to Slack - Finally, the message is sent to a specified Slack recipient or channel, ensuring your team is ready for the week ahead.
