Automatically schedule meetings—and let people know about them

If you run a lot of meetings—for example, with clients—but don't have an assistant, you might want to connect your scheduling app, Zoom, and your calendar. Whenever someone books an appointment in a scheduling app, for example, Zapier can automatically create a new Zoom meeting and add it to whatever app you use for your personal calendar. Here are some pre-built Zaps to power this workflow, but you can create a Zap with whatever apps you use. To make this automation even more powerful, you can add a step that shares the meeting details with your team via a chat app like Slack. We use this automation all the time here at Zapier—any time a new team meeting in Zoom kicks off, the Zoom link gets posted to the appropriate channel in Slack automatically.
