Create your playbook and set the Google Tasks trigger as "New task added"

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

To set up this playbook, click "Add trigger" and then select "New task added" under Google Tasks. Then, select the task list. This will allow your playbook to automatically detect the newly added task in Google Tasks and initiate necessary actions.

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

Add the "Create channel" in Slack automation

Integrate the Slack automation into your playbook to ensure the prompt creation of a new channel in Slack when a new task has been added in Google Tasks.

Click the "Add step" button, then locate the "Create channel" automation for Slack and input the mandatory and relevant details.

If your Slack 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 Slack account.

Activate your Relay.app playbook

Activating your playbook is the final step to automate the creation of a new channel in Slack. Once turned on, it will respond to each newly added task in Google Tasks by creating a new channel in Slack 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.
