Sometimes you and/or your colleagues need to know when a new lead is added to a Salesforce account. Use Zapier to watch your Salesforce account and generate a Gmail alert when a new lead is added. All new leads added after you set up this integration will trigger a Gmail alert. The email can be sent to multiple recipients.

Note: This Zapier integration will not generate Gmail alerts for existing leads in your Salesforce account, only new leads added after you've set it up.

How It Works

  1. A lead is added to a Salesforce account
  2. Zapier generates a Gmail alert

What You Need
