Create an auto-updating Gmail-to-Airtable contacts base

Want to see your contact history at a glance? With this workflow, you can keep each of your contact records updated in Airtable with the timestamp of the most recent email received in Gmail. Let's say we have an Airtable base containing our email contacts, and we want to keep each contact record updated with the timestamp of the most recent email we've received from that contact in Gmail.

How this Gmail-Airtable integration works

  1. A new email is received from a contact in Gmail
  2. Zapier searches for this contact in an Airtable base and adds the timestamp of that email
