Set the Notion trigger as “Database page added”

A playbook always starts with a trigger, which is responsible for detecting changes in your connected applications and responding accordingly.

Add the Notion trigger to initiate your playbook's actions every time a new page is added to a database. Click "Add trigger" in your playbook and choose "Database page added" from the dropdown menu under Notion.

If you still need to connect your Notion account to Relay.app yet, a prompt will guide you through the process.

Add the “Create draft” step in Gmail

Integrate the Gmail automation into your playbook to ensure the prompt creation of email drafts in Gmail every time a new page is added to a Notion database.

Click the "Add step" button, locate the “Create draft” automation for Gmail, and input the mandatory and relevant details.

If your Gmail account still needs to be connected to Relay.app, you will be prompted to complete that connection. Make sure to allow the necessary permissions for Relay.app to sync with your Gmail account.

Activate your playbook

Activating your playbook is the last step in the process. Once you turn it on, it will automatically create email drafts in Gmail every time a new page is added to a Notion database without requiring manual intervention.

To activate your playbook, click the toggle button at the header. Before activating, we recommend performing a test run of your playbook to ensure all the steps work seamlessly together.
