Hey, Zapier Community! Janine here from the blog team with a little inspiration for you.
If you find yourself switching between Gmail and Slack, trying to keep up on email without missing a beat with your team, I’d like to recommend this Zap that will notify you right in Slack when a message hits your inbox.
This workflow is particularly helpful if several people need to monitor a shared inbox, for example, or if it’s important for your team to know about specific type of emails or go over next steps before someone follows up.
We put together a walkthrough that shows you the basics, but also explains some of the advanced settings you can use to further customize your Zap, so you can reduce the noise and only see the important things come through in Slack.
If you’ve got any other ideas or suggestions for this kind of workflow, I’d love to hear them!
