Hello Experts! 

I am a new person in zapier and here is my problem. 

My automation looks like this: a person fills out my form in google forms, then he receives a welcome letter from me (“Thank you for filling out our form. We will contact you shortly!”) and I want this letter to come from two different gmails accounts, depending on the days of the week. Or in other words: i need dynamic selection of the sender depending on the day of the week (for example: on weekdays it will be gmail 1 and on weekends it will be gmail 2 / or on even days gmail 1 and on odd days gmail 2).

How can I link two gmail accounts in zapier and make them work on specific days of the week?  And can it be done at all :thinking: ?

Thanks!

Hi @Ivan D 

You can connect multiple accounts for the same app here: https://zapier.com/app/connections

TIP: Use a private browser to authenticate each app account.

 

Try using Filters or Paths in your Zap to route the desired behavior.

Just wanted to follow up here to add that if you’re looking to use a specific Gmail account (Connect multiple accounts of the same app to Zapier) on certain days of the week, then you’ll need to set up some conditional logic for the Zap to “know” what day it is. 

This can be done using Paths / Filter steps as Troy suggested, but I wanted to share some further information on how to go about this sort of thing in case it’s helpful. The following articles discuss how to get a Zap to run on certain days of the week which is should be a good starting point for setting up necessary conditional logic for the desired workflow:
