Managing your email inbox is tough. Zapier can help out, by helping you turn your Gmail emails into Trello cards. It's the perfect way to combine your todo list with your inbox.

Whenever you receive a new email from a particular contact, star an email, add a label to a message, or have a new email that matches a search, Zapier can copy the message and add it to a new card, create a new comment, or make a new list or board on Trello.

That way, you can keep your conversations together, automatically start new projects from your inbox, and more. You can even use Zapier to send emails from Gmail when you add new Trello cards or have any other activity in your account, to send messages and notifications automatically.

Let Zapier do the work for you.
