How does this automation work?

Bardeen's automation playbook transforms labeled emails into actionable tasks within Coda, leveraging the analytical prowess of OpenAI. For businesses looking to manage projects efficiently, this tool provides the means to instantly capture tasks from communication channels and directly populate project management tools, ensuring nothing falls through the cracks. With OpenAI's advanced summarization and task extraction capabilities, you can automatically generate and organize your task list in Coda, saving time for more strategic work.

Here's how this workflow generates a task list from an email and adds it to a Coda table:

  • Step 1: Email Label Trigger - When a specified label is added to an email in Gmail, the playbook triggers. Gmail is a robust email service with powerful search and organization features.
  • Step 2: Generate Summary with OpenAI - OpenAI summarizes the content of the email, providing a concise overview that can be used to identify key tasks.
  • Step 3: Extract Task List - OpenAI then processes the summary to extract a list of actionable tasks.
  • Step 4: Merge Task Descriptions - This step prepares the extracted tasks, by merging them into a formatted text ready for insertion into Coda.
  • Step 5: Add to Coda Table - The playbook adds the formatted task list to a Coda table. Coda is a flexible document tool that combines text, spreadsheets, and apps into one collaborative space.

How to run the workflow

Creating Coda issues from email threads can be a tedious and draining process that can sap your energy and productivity.

It can take hours to manually sift through your inbox, identify tasks, and then manually input them into your task management system. This playbook will automate this process and save you valuable time.

By setting up this automation to generate a task list from an email when a label is added, you can easily track and manage your Coda issues without having to input the information manually.

This automation converts emails into Coda issues when a label is added, and creates these issues in Coda. This ensures that all relevant information is captured and organized correctly.
