Can you outline a specific example with screenshots for how your Zap steps are outlined and configured along with screenshots from Monday?

step 1 - monday 

when Email incoming with the words “submitted feedback”

​​​​​the email is received by the smart albums software 

step 2 


this is the item is made via monday 

then the clients in smart albums approve the album 
i get email 
subject like this 
“bigipapa has approved אוסי ואלעד - 2.2.25 album”

how can zappier can know when email received to the same item that all ready in bord . and to update it

We would need to see screenshots with how your Zap steps are outlined and configured to have full context.
