Sent SMS X hours before Google Calendar Event

Goal: Sent SMS X hours before Event Start in Google Calendar

In Zapier I can make use of the “Event Start in Google Calendar” trigger that runs the automation (in my case SMS via Twilio) X hours before the event start. Then I use the output as trigger for the next steps. This works out perfectly but I do not see a solution on hot to realize it within Make. Do anyone knows how to make this happen?

Since I now switched to Make, the trigger is missing. There’s only the watch event trigger but this does not help.

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the Make community!

You can use the Google Calendar “Search Events” module.


This way you can find events that are starting in X hours’ time.


Thanks a lot for your prompt answer! Super helpful. Since I never worked with this module, could be support me further in how to use this?

What I reached so far:
I get a list with all Events I want to sent a reminder to. E.g. today 2 appointments (output 2 bundles).

But how I now can work with then that the following module (Twilio) will be triggered X hours before and not directly, since there is no possibility in the Twilio module to add a timeDate when the message should be sent.

Thanks a lot!
