How to use Zapier to automatically apply a label to each email from the same sender in Gmail?

Hello, I currently have conversation view turned on for my gmail.

However, when a sender creates a new email with a new subject, it then creates a new conversation.

I find this frustrating, as I’d like to keep all emails from the same sender in the same conversation, regardless of the subject.

The only solution I can think of is to apply a label to each email address.

The only automatic way I can think of having this happen is using zapier, but I’m not sure how to create it.

So far the zaps i’ve looked at want to apply the same label to all emails from the same sender, but I can’t tell it that I want the label to be named after the senders email address.

Make sense?

Hi @kmillard 

Good question.

There is no Gmail Zap action to find label only create label and add label to email.

Each Gmail Label actually has an internal ID that needs to be used.

The workaround would be to log Gmail Labels (internal ID and friendly label) in a GSheet then use that as part of the Zap to find/create.
