How does this automation work?

Bardeen's playbook integrates Gmail with ClickUp and utilizes the capabilities of OpenAI to transform emails into actionable tasks. In today’s fast-paced business environment, staying on top of your tasks is crucial. With this workflow, you can instantly turn important emails into ClickUp tasks by simply adding a label, ensuring that you never miss a beat on your to-do list.

Here's how this workflow turns emails into ClickUp tasks automatically:

  • Step 1: Trigger on Email Label - When a specific label is added to an email in Gmail, it triggers the workflow to process that email's content.
  • Step 2: Summarize Email Content - OpenAI is used to generate a business-level summary of the email's body, providing a clear description for task creation.
  • Step 3: Extract Task List - OpenAI processes the summarized content to extract a list of actionable tasks.
  • Step 4: Prepare Task Description - The extracted task list is then merged into a formatted text that will be used as the task description in ClickUp.
  • Step 5: Create ClickUp Task - A new task is created in your specified ClickUp list using the prepared description, automating the process of task management.
