How to run the workflow

Excited to simplify your email organization? Our playbook is your ultimate solution. It scans all incoming emails in Gmail, focusing on those with PDF or image attachments, and generates summaries for them. Subsequently, it compiles the email information and summaries into a convenient Google Doc.

Manually reviewing and summarizing emails with attachments can be time-consuming and prone to oversight. With our playbook, you can efficiently manage your inbox and ensure important information is easily accessible.

Imagine having a neatly organized Google Doc containing summaries of emails with attachments, allowing for quick reference and efficient decision-making. Whether you're a busy professional managing client communications or a student staying on top of coursework submissions, this automation streamlines the process, saving you time and reducing the risk of missing crucial details.
