I have been working on an integration to automatically save important emails to airtable for further tracking and attaching emails to various tasks and projects. Looking for feedback from our community :slightly_smiling_face:

How does it work?

  • Simply forward any email to a designated address (similar to how other project management tools work)
  • A script will pick up the sender and cc, dates, attached files and other email attributes if any and save it to an airtable of your choice
  • You will be able to view the entire email thread in airtable and manage emails with your other existing workflows

Cool features:

  • Auto tag emails with hashtags
  • Attachments are automatically saved to airtable
  • Sender and CC are saved as email fields
  • Possible to auto forward (with or without email rules as filters) to automate email importing
  • Works with BCC to save an outgoing email to airtable

If this could help you, please join the waitlist here so I can let you know once this system is ready for beta testing :slightly_smiling_face:

Sounds great!
We use Integromat (make) currently to action a similar workflow so would be interested to hear how your version works.

Hey Joe! Thanks for the comment. How do you find integromat so far? Is there something I could perhaps help with this new email integration?
