No one wants spelling or grammar mistakes in their content, but errors are easy to miss. Use this Perfect Tense integration to automatically check your Google Docs for errors. All you have to do is move any document to your "Proofread" folder, and Perfect Tense will send you a Gmail notification about errors that need your attention.

Note: This integration will save your document to the Perfect Tense editor to help you visualize the corrections being made. We recommend creating a "Proofread" folder in your Google Docs where you can put files when they are ready to be proofread.

How this Google Docs-Perfect Tense-Gmail integration works

  1. A document is moved to a specified folder in Google Docs
  2. Perfect Tense saves the corrected text in your file manager and finds the number of errors
  3. If there are any errors, Zapier sends an email notification to your Gmail with the document title, number of errors, a link to view the corrections in the Perfect Tense editor
