Set the Linear trigger as “New project added”

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

Add the Linear trigger to initiate your playbook's actions every time a new project is added. Click "Add trigger" in your playbook and choose "New project added" from the dropdown menu under Linear.

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

Add the “Send email” step in Gmail

Integrate the Gmail automation into your playbook to ensure the prompt sending of an email from Gmail every time a new project is added in Linear.

Click the "Add step" button, locate the “Send email” 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 send an email from Gmail every time a new project is added in Linear 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.
