How does this automation work?

Integrating your email with task management and file storage systems can vastly improve your organizational efficiency. Bardeen's Playbook "Save labeled emails to ClickUp, including attachments stored on Dropbox" does exactly that by saving emails from Gmail with a specific label as ClickUp tasks and storing any attachments on Dropbox. This powerful workflow is designed for businesses looking to streamline their project management and document handling processes.

Here's how this workflow automates the process of transferring labeled emails to ClickUp tasks and storing attachments:

  • Step 1: Find labeled emails - Bardeen starts by finding all emails in Gmail that are marked with a specific label, as defined by the user. This helps in identifying the important emails that need to be managed within ClickUp.
  • Step 2: Upload attachments to Dropbox - Any attachments found in the labeled emails are then automatically uploaded to a designated Dropbox folder. This ensures that all files related to the task are centrally stored and accessible.
  • Step 3: Merge email content - The content of the email is prepared for the task description by merging the email body with any additional information needed for the ClickUp task.
  • Step 4: Create ClickUp task - Finally, a new task is created in ClickUp with the email's subject as the title, and the body merged in the previous step as the task description. The Dropbox link of the uploaded attachment is also included in the task for reference.
