Email has been around for a long time, and many of us still use our inboxes as a makeshift to-do list — but there's a better way. Set up this multi-step Gmail-Trello-Google Sheets integration to trigger an automated workflow as soon as you star an email on Gmail, creating a new card on Trello so you can keep track of what needs to get done and adding a row to a Google spreadsheet so your record-keeping is always up-to-date and accurate. Star away! We'll handle the rest.

How It Works

  1. A new email is starred on Gmail
  2. Zapier automatically creates a card on Trello...
  3. ...and adds a row to a spreadsheet on Google Sheets
