How does this automation work?

Automating email responses can greatly improve your productivity, especially when dealing with a high volume of emails. This Bardeen playbook takes advantage of OpenAI's capabilities to draft a reply to an email currently open in Gmail. The automation finds the email thread, uses OpenAI to compose a draft reply, and saves it as a draft in Gmail. It saves time and reduces the cognitive load of drafting replies to routine emails.

Here is how this workflow works:

  1. Find Email Thread: Bardeen uses Gmail's integration to find the email thread from the currently open page in Gmail. Gmail is a popular email service that keeps track of all your emails with threaded conversations, tags, and Google-powered search.
  2. Merge Text: The system merges the text "Re:" with the subject of the found email thread. This is a common practice when replying to an email.
  3. Prepare the Text for OpenAI: The system prepares the text for OpenAI by merging "Generate a reply for the following email:" with the body of the found email. This text will be used as an input for OpenAI.
  4. Create OpenAI Composed Email: OpenAI's technology is used to create a composed email from the prepared text. OpenAI is an AI research and deployment company with a mission to ensure that artificial general intelligence benefits all of humanity.
  5. Create Draft Email: A draft email is created in Gmail with the recipient being the sender of the original email and the subject being the merged text from step 2. The body of the email is the composed email from OpenAI.
