Zapier.com is web service that acts as a hub for many other web applications including MyCalendarAlerts.
Zapier® allows interactions between web applications that might not normally communicate.
Think of the Zapier hub as a train station junction where web apps like Google®, Facebook® and MyCalendarAlerts® are
the trains brining information into the junction that other trains (web apps) can now access and take action on.
For example, a calendar alert can trigger MyCalendarAlerts to post data to Zapier that is then sent to Facebook® to create a post. It can be configured to do anything from logging entries in a database, to launching a marketing campaign. Zapier® hosts thousands of apps allowing inumerable interactions and ways to drive automations based on your calendar events.
Zapier.com offers free accounts to make it easy to get started.
Zapier integrations lets you connect MyCalendarAlerts to 2,000+ other web services. Automated connections called Zaps, set up in minutes with no coding, can automate your day-to-day tasks and build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn't be possible.
Each Zap has one app as the Trigger, where your information comes from and which causes one or more Actions in other apps, where your data gets sent automatically.

The default configuration for MyCalendarAlerts Zaps is to trigger on all calendar alerts fired by MyCalendarAlerts. For example, if you have a Zap from MyCalendarAlerts to Google-sheets, every time a calendar alert event is fired, it will be logged to the Google-sheet.
The MyCalendarAlerts Zaps can also be configured to only trigger based on certain criteria by adding filters for various
data-fields that get sent to Zapier. These filters act very similar to the string filters that can be configured
in your MyCalendarAlerts alert policies.
The filters are based on keyword strings that are used to include or exclude alert notifications. If you include filters in your alert policies and then add policies in your Zaps, they will act as a combined set of filters that will further restrict the notifications that trigger your Zaps.
Besides the string-matching filters, you can also configure zaps to be excluded if you don't have any contacts that subscribe to the policy that leads to the alert being triggered.
