Hello all,


I am rather confused here and I would like to ask for your help.

I want to use the GMail Add-On.

I want to create a custom Zap that is triggered by the Add-On.


But I cannot see any way to do it. Is it only possible to use what is predefined or am I missing something?


Thank you!

Hey @IvanStaykov ,


What do you mean by Gmail Add On? Also, What are you trying to build on Zapier?

  1. I mean the Zapier Gmail Add-On that they provide
  2. I want to add emails to my CRM but want a manual trigger, and additional fields that are manually added
  3. zapier push is not ok, because the data in additional fields is not structured

Hey @IvanStaykov ,


Gmail body data will never be in structured format. It will come as a single paragraph. If you want to format it, than you should use Code by Zapier to format.

My first issue is if I can add a custom zap to the add-on, or I can only use the templates provided.


once this is solved I will address the second problem of how to get the data I need.
