Why you should use Zapier for your AI Email Assistant

Transform your email management with the AI Email Assistant template built with Zapier. This AI email assistant tool uses AI to analyze incoming email from your email client, categorize them intelligently, and summarize their content, helping you streamline your inbox and focus on what's important.

How the template works

This AI Email Assistant uses Zapier Workflows to trigger on new emails arriving in your Gmail account. Here’s how it simplifies your email management:

  • Categorization: As emails arrive, the first ChatGPT step categorizes them into one of the predefined (and customizable) categories: App Notifications, Action Required, Sales Emails, or Newsletters.
  • Summarization: A second ChatGPT step then provides a concise summary of the email, allowing you to grasp the essence without reading the entire content.
  • Record Storage: Each email record, along with its category and summary, is automatically added to Zapier Tables.

To get started:

  • Click Use Template
  • Sign up or log in to your Zapier account (it's free to sign up)
  • Navigate to the Zap called “AI Email Assistant Inbox-Categorize and Summarize New Emails”
  • Connect your Gmail account (or your email client app) and ChatGPT accounts, test the steps and publish the Zap
  • Optionally add navigation to your interface and/or secure it by only letting managed users access it

Use the built-in interface in Zapier Interfaces, which displays a filtered table for each email category. This setup not only makes it easy to view and manage emails by category but also allows you to archive emails with a simple action, keeping your inbox organized.
