Hello! I’m looking for a way to automatically decline Google Calendar invites if I already have an existing scheduling conflict. I’d also like to send a customized message, “Hello, I already have a scheduling conflict for this time, can you pick some time out of my calendar; here is my calendly link”. How can I go about doing this using Zapier?

Hi @AndyW 

Good question.

Wouldn’t that be avoided by using Calendly in the first place?

 

These are the available GCal Zap actions.

Update Event does not allow for declining invites.

 

@Troy Tessalone That would be a great solution if teams would agree to use the link =)

Thanks for the response! I didn’t see it there either, but I wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing something.

Hi there, @AndyW! 👋

Troy is correct here, the Google Calendar app doesn’t have an action to decline meetings with a custom message.

I did find a feature request for that action to be added to the Google Calendar app though, so I’ve gone ahead and added your vote for that. I can’t make any promises as to when it would be added but we’ll be sure to email you the minute that action becomes available! 🙂
