Google search queries are powerful tools, but it's counter-productive if you have to perform them regularly. That's a task much better suited for this Gmail-Sidekick notification. Go through our step by step configuration and, after that, you'll start receiving Sidekick notifications whenever a new match is found for your chosen term in Gmail. Since the search is handled automatically and constantly by Zapier, all you have to do from then on is think of how to apply all that extra time.

How It Works

  1. A new match is found for a search on Gmail
  2. Zapier automatically sends a Sidekick notification

What You Need

  • Gmail account
  • Sidekick account

Note: This integration will only work if you have a Business Gmail account - these have custom domains. Free consumer Gmail accounts cannot be used with this integration. Read Help docs here.
