Create your playbook and set the Gmail trigger as "Label added"

After creating your playbook, you can proceed to add your trigger. The trigger detects changes in your connected apps and responds to your playbook.

To setup this playbook, click "Add trigger" and then select "Label added" under Gmail. Then, select details like label name and whether to only trigger for the first email in a conversation. This will allow your playbook to automatically detect the new label added to a specific email in Gmail and initiate necessary actions.

If this is your first time using a Gmail integration in Relay.app, a prompt will guide you through the connection process.

Add the "Create task" in Google Tasks automation

Integrate the Google Tasks automation into your playbook to ensure the prompt creation of a new task in Google Tasks whenever a new email is labeled in Gmail.

Click the "Add step" button, then locate the "Create task" automation for Google Tasks and input the mandatory and relevant details.

If your Google Tasks account isn't already 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 Google Tasks account.

Activate your Relay.app playbook

Activating your playbook is the final step to automate the creation of a new task in Google Tasks. Once turned on, it will respond whenever an email is labeled in Gmail by creating a new task in Google Tasks without manual intervention.

To enable your playbook, click the toggle button located in the header. It is advisable to perform a test run of your playbook beforehand to ensure all steps work seamlessly together and reminders are being sent correctly.
