How does this automation work?

Bardeen's playbook for daily email summaries to Slack is designed to help you stay on top of your inbox without constant monitoring. It automates the process of summarizing your email contents and sending these summaries to a designated Slack channel or user. Especially for busy professionals who rely on Slack for communication, this workflow ensures that you never miss important information from your emails while maintaining focus on your work.

Here's how this workflow automates your email summaries into Slack:

  • Step 1: Set Schedule - You decide when Bardeen should trigger the workflow to gather your emails. Set the time frame for daily summaries by specifying the 'After when?' and 'Before when?' parameters.
  • Step 2: Find Emails - Bardeen interacts with Gmail to find emails within the specified time frame. Gmail's powerful search capabilities are utilized to gather the necessary emails to summarize.
  • Step 3: Summarize with OpenAI - The body of the found emails is summarized using OpenAI's advanced natural language processing capabilities, providing you with concise and relevant summaries.
  • Step 4: Merge Summaries - The summaries are then merged with the subject lines to give context to each summary in preparation to be sent to Slack.
  • Step 5: Send to Slack - Finally, the summaries are sent as messages to the designated Slack channel or user. Slack becomes the hub for your daily email summaries, allowing for quick review and action.
