Do you find yourself spending too much time sorting through emails, trying to find important information buried in lengthy messages? This automation is designed to streamline your email management process and save you valuable time.
With this automation, you can say goodbye to manually sorting emails. It seamlessly integrates with Airtable, allowing you to generate and save concise summaries of new emails automatically. No more sifting through endless threads or struggling to recall crucial details. The summaries include essential information such as the date, sender, and a convenient link to the original email.
You can even customize the automation to process emails exclusively from a specific sender, eliminating the clutter and ensuring you never miss important messages.
Whether you're a busy professional drowning in a flood of emails or simply someone who wants to optimize their workflow, this automation will transform your email experience, making it more efficient and hassle-free.
Let’s set it up!
The first step is to set up an Airtable with the fields you want to save.
Bardeen will get the subject line, summary, from address, date and link to the email for every new email that lands in your inbox.
Click the “Try it” button at the top of this page to get this Autobook saved. If it’s your first time using Bardeen, you will be redirected to install the extension.
When you run it for the first time, you will be redirected to download the browser extension. If you haven't previously integrated Airtable and Gmail, you will need to do so.
Bardeen will ask for a database and an optional sender address. If you specify a sender address, only emails coming from that address will get summarized and saved. After you choose the database and optional sender, you will get a prompt to map the information to the fields in Airtable.
The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Airtable that you want to associate with the information on the left. If you don’t want a piece of information, leave that field empty, and it will be skipped. That’s it!
Make sure the automation is activated (toggled on).
