I am trying to solve a problem where I need to add text to the body of an email, before it auto-forwards to my BI tool. I need to add a 1:1 token for each customer who uses our email integrations. More details of my workflow is below.

Step 1: Email is scheduled from 3rd party platform called PLATFORM A

Step 2: PLATFORM A’s email comes into a designated email address on our gmail business account

Step 3: (hopefully) Zapier appends bespoke text to our email. The text will be a variation of the below:

  • @token=93dc4431-65e3-47f2-aaf3-13fca59623a1
  • @sheet=<Sheet Name>
  • @headers=true
  • @process=recreate|reload|append|update|updateappend

Step 4: Gmail forwards email to our BI tool.

Can Zapier help with this use case?

Hi @ababab608!

You could use the New Email in Gmail trigger with the Send Email in Gmail action. With this action, you can template in the original email body captured from the trigger along with any custom text.


If you need to conditionally set some of that injected text based on some variable, Paths may be able to help!

Let me know if you have any other questions!
