Parsing signal from noise can be a challenge with a busy inbox. Set up this GitHub-Email integration and Zapier can help. Once it's active, whenever a new issue is created on GitHub this automation will trigger and send you an email from Zapier's native service.

Since your issues will come from a specific Zapier email, you can filter them as needed to ensure you can find what you need and hide it when you don't.

How It Works

  1. A new issue is created on GitHub
  2. Zapier automatically sends you an email
