In Slack, notifications for calendar events can appear when and where you want them. When posted to a channel, you and your teammates can easily click or expand a reminder for more options and information.



Step 1: Install the Google Calendar app

  1. Visit the Google Calendar app page.
  2. Click Install.
  3. Click Authorize a Google Account.
  4. On the Google authentication screen, click Accept.

Once you’ve connected your Google Account, continue to step 2.


Step 2: Connect a calendar to Slack

  1. Select the calendar you’d like Slack to post updates from.select_gcal
  2. Choose a channel or DM to post to. If you'd prefer only to send updates to yourself, choose Privately to you via @slackbot from the list.
  3. Next, you can customize the kind of notifications you’d like to receive: reminders when an event is scheduled to start, updates made to calendar events, and/or daily or weekly summaries for a list of upcoming events.
  4. When you're done, click Save Integration.
  5. On the next page, you can choose to Go back and edit, or click I'm done.

Success! ✨ Your calendar reminders will now appear in Slack. You can adjust the settings at any time by visiting the Google Calendar app page.
