Google Ads and Youcanbookme workflow

I’m not sure whether this is possible with Zapier, but thought I’d post in here to check. 

What I’m after is a an automation to regularly check if I’m free or busy in my google calendar (or youcanbookme). Then if I’m busy, pause a google ads campaign (or perhaps lower bids). Or if I’m free, activate the google ads campaign (or raise bids). 

Is this possible within Zapier, or do you think I’d need a developer to work with the respective API’s?

Hi @GeorgeLane 

So, you can definitely add a “Google Ads → Change Campaign Status” step to toggle ads on and off.

What I’m struggling with is a way to check if availability at any given time as that’s not a built in feature in the Google Calendar or YCBM integrations.

Let me ask around for some ideas.

Hi @GeorgeLane!

Since this was a little while ago, I wanted to check in to see if you’d managed to solve this or whether you still needed help here. Please let us know!
