View your foretaster e-mails within Google Calendar

Some people are surprised to discover that foretaster is e-mail based. We believe e-mail is great because it doesn't stand in your way and lets everyone use his/her own user interface (e-mail client).

My favorite e-mail client is Gmail and I have recently started using it with Zapier, a service which allows you to integrate Gmail with other services. I've set-up a trigger, so that every foretaster email I receive will be added to my Google Calendar.



If you'd like to try it, use this "Zap" and select all emails from notifications@foretaster.com. Zapier then checks (every 5 minutes or so) for a new foretaster e-mail and when it finds one, it creates a new event in your Google Calendar.



This gives you a pretty useful overview of all your conversions in time. You could, for example, use this to optimize your marketing campaigns based on day parting.

Try Zapier + foretaster and don't forget to leave a comment with a feedback!
