Add the Cal.com trigger to initiate your playbook's actions every time there's an upcoming booking on Cal.com. Click "Add trigger" in your playbook and choose "Booking upcoming" from the dropdown menu under Cal.com.

If you still need to connect your Cal.com account to Relay.app yet, a prompt will guide you through the process.
