  • Email account to monitor for new emails

This workflow automatically creates summaries of new emails received in your inbox, saving them to a Google Document for easy review. Upon receiving a new email, the content is summarized using OpenAI's advanced natural language processing capabilities.

The process involves waiting for a new email to arrive, summarizing its content with OpenAI, creating a new Google Document, and appending the summarized text to this document. The title of each Google Document includes the email's subject, making it easy to identify. Ideal for professionals who receive a high volume of emails and need a quicker way to digest important information.

How Can AI Help Summarize My Emails and Save Them in Google Docs?

Automatically Summarize Emails in Gmail with ChatGPT

Managing a cluttered inbox can be overwhelming, especially when you're trying to distill important information from lengthy emails. Fortunately, AI technologies like ChatGPT offer a solution by summarizing emails, saving you time and enhancing productivity. This guide will explore how to manually summarize emails and how to automate this process by saving summaries as Google Docs, leveraging Bardeen for automation.

Enhance your email management by automating summaries with Bardeen. Try it now to streamline your workflow. Start here.

Manual Summarization and Conversion to Google Docs

Before diving into automation, it's essential to understand how to manually summarize emails and convert them into Google Docs. This foundational knowledge ensures you can effectively manage email content even without automation tools.

To manually summarize an email, focus on extracting key points such as the main idea, action items, and any critical dates or numbers. This process requires careful reading and analysis to distill the most important information. Once summarized, you can manually create a Google Doc and paste your summary for record-keeping or sharing purposes.

Converting email content to Google Docs can also be done manually by copying the email text and pasting it into a new Google Doc. This method is straightforward but can be time-consuming for multiple emails.

Automating Email Summarization with ChatGPT and Bardeen

For professionals seeking efficiency, automating the summarization and conversion process is a game-changer. Leveraging AI tools like ChatGPT in conjunction with Bardeen can automate the extraction, summarization, and saving of email content into Google Docs.

Bardeen, when integrated with ChatGPT, can be set up to trigger upon receiving a new email. It utilizes ChatGPT's capability to summarize the email content automatically. The summarized content can then be saved as a new Google Document, with the document's title reflecting the email's subject for easy identification. This automation saves significant time and ensures that critical information is never overlooked.

To set up this automation:

  • Install Bardeen and grant it access to your Gmail and Google Docs.
  • Create a new automation trigger for incoming emails.
  • Use ChatGPT within Bardeen to summarize the email content.
  • Configure Bardeen to create a new Google Doc with the summarized content.

This workflow not only simplifies email management but also enhances your productivity by allowing you to focus on tasks that require your attention, rather than sifting through emails.
