SlackSend Direct Message

Gmail and Slack are communication staples, and sometimes you need to send information quickly between them. This Zap automatically sends you a direct Slack message every time a Gmail message is labeled, which cuts down on the time you spend copying and pasting important information. That way, you can take immediate action on important emails.

How this Gmail-Slack integration works

  1. You receive a new labeled email in Gmail
  2. Zapier automatically sends the details as a direct message in Slack

Apps involved

  • Gmail
  • Slack

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.
