An email backup now could prevent tragedy in the future. Using Google Drive you'll also get the added benefit of being able to share that information, and this Gmail-Google Drive integration will take care of it all for you. After being activated, any new email Zapier finds under a specific label will automatically be copied to Google Drive, where a new text file will be created for each.

How It Works

  1. A new labeled email is detected on Gmail
  2. Zapier automation creates a new text file on Google Drive
