How does this automation work?

Bardeen's automation playbook "Summarize and send new emails to Slack using OpenAI" simplifies the process of staying up-to-date with your email communications directly within Slack. By leveraging OpenAI's powerful summarization capabilities, you can receive concise summaries of your incoming emails, including key details such as the sender and a link to the email. This is particularly useful for professionals who need to quickly process information from emails and collaborate with their team on Slack.

Here's how this workflow simplifies email management with Slack and OpenAI:

  • Step 1: Email received trigger - When a new email arrives, this integration triggers the workflow and prepares the email subject for summarization.
  • Step 2: Merge email details - Bardeen merges the email subject and sender details to create a consolidated text snippet ready for summarization.
  • Step 3: Summarize with OpenAI - OpenAI generates a summary of the email content, providing a clear, concise version of the message.
  • Step 4: Format summary - Text conversion is done to format the summary, subject, and sender information into a presentable format for Slack.
  • Step 5: Prepare Slack message - The summarized email content is merged into a message format, including the subject and sender details. A Slack recipient will need to be specified for the message to be sent.
  • Step 6: Send to Slack - The final step is sending the formatted and summarized email details as a Slack message to the specified recipient, keeping your team informed and responsive to important communications.
