If you want to keep records of incoming or outgoing emails that match specific search parameters, use this Zap to save time. This Gmail-Google Doc integration will periodically search your Gmail with any parameters you want, and create individual text files for any new emails that match the search.

Note: This integration will only find emails that match the search query and have recently come into your Inbox; it won't find older emails in your archives.

How It Works

  1. Your Gmail is searched for emails that match specific search parameters
  2. Zapier automation creates new text files in Google Docs for all such emails
