SlackSend Channel Message

Don't waste your time checking email! Email is like laundry—it never ends. It's the perfect spot for some automation and peace of mind. With this Gmail integration, you can forward only important emails to a Slack channel and ignore the rest…for a while, at least!

How It Works

  1. Zapier keeps an eye on your Gmail inbox for new emails
  2. When a new email is received, Zapier posts a message (customizable) in the Slack channel of your choice
