Google Calendar Integration


You need a Zapier account first. If you don't have an account, click here to create a Zapier account.


In this article, we will try integrating both ClickSend and Google Calendar. So what we want to achieve here is to send an SMS to a specified number when a before an event is about to occur as a reminder. 

So, let's get started.


Step 1:

Login to your Zapier account. And then click Make a Zap! button.

Step 2:

Let's search and select Google Calendar as our trigger app. Next, check Event Start as our trigger action. Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 3:

Let's link your Google Calendar account.

Select Choose Account.

Click Connect an Account button.

Enter your Email Address and Password or select your account from the list.

Then click Allow button.

Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 4:

Let finish up our trigger app setup.

Go back to your Zapier setup page.

Then click Fetch & Continue button.

Lastly the Continue button.

Step 5:

Ok, let's set up our Action app. Let's search and choose ClickSend. 

Next select Send SMS to Contact List as our action. 

Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 6:

Next, let's add your ClickSend account. Click Connect an Account button.

There should be a popup saying to add or allow your Zapier and ClickSend account to be linked together.

Type in your ClickSend username and API key.

Click the Test button to check if it was successful.

Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 7:

Let's set up our SMS message.

In the To input box, enter the number that you want to be informed when an event is about to start.

Enter a custom generic message into the Message input box about the event such as the Summary, Description, Event Begins, Event Ends, Location, etc...

Set the From input box as Google Calendar or something else meaningful.

Then click Continue button.

Step 8:

Let's finish up everything.

Click Create & Continue button.

Then the Finish button.

Lastly, name your Zap, and turn it ON
