I am trying to come up with a way to have Zapier send Google Calendar notifications via Slack. We’re on the standard plan and the poll rate for “event start” isn’t working well for us so I came up with the following:
- Google Calendar Email Alert for 10 minute start time
- Gmail filter to take those inbound emails from Google, apply a label in “Calendar Alerts”
- Zapier to check for new mail connected to my Gmail account in that label “Calendar Alerts”
- Send to Slack
Doing it all manually works fine and when I am working through the zap steps, everything works with no issues. The problem is it won’t run by itself. The email comes in from Google, gets the label but never triggers the zap. I see nothing in the Zap history. Any ideas?
