How does this playbook work?

Automatically label Gmail emails based on content to keep your inbox organized without manual effort. Ideal for enhancing productivity.
  • Email content to trigger the automation
  • Predefined labels to add or remove
  • Emails in Gmail automatically labeled based on content

This automation labels your Gmail emails automatically based on their content. It's a perfect solution for keeping your inbox organized without manual effort.

Firstly, the automation waits for a new email to be received in Gmail. Once an email arrives, it searches your inbox for emails matching the content of the received email. Finally, it updates the labels of these emails based on the predefined rules you've set. This means you can automatically categorize emails into labels like "Work", "Personal", "Urgent", or custom labels based on specific keywords or phrases found in your emails.

Pro Tip: This workflow can be customized to include removing labels, adding multiple labels, or triggering other actions based on the email content.

By automating email labeling, you can focus on what's truly important, knowing that your inbox is efficiently organized. Ideal for individuals seeking to enhance productivity and for businesses looking to streamline email management processes.

Manual Setup with Filters

Gmail's built-in filters are a powerful way to automatically label incoming emails based on specific criteria. Here's how to set it up:

  1. In Gmail, click the gear icon and select 'See all settings'.
  2. Go to the 'Filters and Blocked Addresses' tab and click on 'Create a new filter'.
  3. Enter your criteria for filtering. For instance, to label all emails from a specific sender, enter their email address in the 'From' field. You can also use the 'Subject' field or other criteria.
  4. Click on 'Create filter with this search'.
  5. Select 'Apply the label', choose an existing label or create a new one, and click on 'Create filter'.

This method allows you to automatically label incoming emails, but it requires setting up each filter manually.

Using Email Variations and Advanced Filters

You can further refine your automation by creating variations of your email address and using advanced filters. For instance, if your email is, you can use for signing up for newsletters. Then, create a filter to automatically label emails sent to this address.

Advanced filters can also be used to label emails from outside your organization or based on specific keywords. This is particularly useful for work or school accounts, allowing for better email management.
