google calendar to whatsapp integration

1. some of the meeting scheduled in google calendar are in person meetings while others are online. For the online meetings, we wish to include the meeting link in the whatsapp message. The lesson template is found below. I use the same template for both online and in centre meeting. Problem is the message runs into error when the meeting is in person as there is no meeting link in {4}. How to get around this problem?

2. I will like whats app message to be sent out one day before the meeting, but message is sent the moment the meeting is created in google calendar. is there any application to delay sending of messages?

Hey @Jing

Please refer to the following video tutorial once on how you can design the workflow to send the WhatsApp message.

Hey @Jing

Please convert the Date Time format once in UTC format and then try again as mentioned in the help text.

Hey @Jing

In which workflow do you have made the changes, as we are unable to find the workflow?
https://connect.pabbly.com/workflow...IYlQLB2cAFAUBVAJRIgMZUm0HGAdaUmEDRgFeDyULaQ## Hi here is the workflow, I changed the time to UTC time, but the message is not being sent and not delayed.

One more question, what happens if I will like to inform a few attendees in the google meeting? I cant seem to send whatsapp messages to a few attendees

You haven't converted the date time format to UTC format which might be required in the Delay Until action step.

Though we have made the changes, so please try now after doing the following changes.

Along with that, you might have made some changes in the trigger response, and because of that mapping gets disrupted.

So, please remap the values in the Cloud API action step and try again.

Hey @Jing

As we can see from your 5th action step where you are subtracting the time from the start time is actually not going according to the Delay Until action step.

Since the subtraction of time from the start time goes to the old day it will not process the workflow.

In Execution -

So, as a solution, we request you follow the mentioned video once and try again.

(Try the last part of the video)

Hey @Jing

You have put the delay function in the workflow so it will send the Whatsapp message when the delay gets completed.

Hey @Jing

Please check the time at which you have executed the workflow and the calculation you have done at which you are trying to send the message notification.

Since after the subtraction of time from the DateTime Formatter, the time which Delay Until got was already past because of that message did not get forwarded.

@Supreme I selected delay of one day & inserted new meetings that are more than 1 day away. Sadly, I did not receive any message notifications.
Seems like the messages only come in during testing but not after that
