Hi all 


We’re using a  Calendly booking system to ensure our office doesn’t go over the allowed 32 spots. 


The idea is for people to book in a spot whenever they want but once a day at 9:00am the bot posts the event which contains the number of spots filled along with the names of the people who have booked in. 

My thinking is calendly- append data - release to slack at 9:00am each weekday  


problem is how do I ensure it’s just grabbing data for that day?

Hi @Bazdoctor,

You can use Zapier Formater to get today’s date and then use a  filter step to compare the Calendly booked time trigger against the formatter.  If they match → Append data.

Do you restrict your Calendly to allow bookings to 1 day in the future?  If you want more than 1 day out you need to have multiple data stores for each day. Otherwise you Slack post will be missing bookings.


An alternative is to create a Digest based on month/day input where each record is a booking.  Your work flow would be:


Calendly Booking → Append booking data to Digest (Digest name is booking date)



Everyday at 9:00am → get todays date (Must match digest reference) → Get digest that matches todays date → Release digest to slack.
