Create your playbook

To automate this workflow, you'll create a Relay playbook that runs automatically every time a presentation is added to a Google Slides folder.

Get started by signing up at and clicking "New playbook." Give your new playbook a unique name and emoji.


Add the Google Slides trigger

Every playbook starts with a trigger. The trigger detects changes in your connected apps and runs your playbook in response.

Click "Add trigger" and select "Presentation added to folder" under Google Slides. Then, select the parent folder where presentations are added. If this is your first time using a Google Slides integration in Relay, you'll be prompted to connect your Google Slides account.

Now, every time a presentation is added to a folder in Google Slides, your playbook will run automatically.


Add the SmartSuite "Create record" automation

Now you can create a new record in SmartSuite. Add a new step and select "Create record" from the list of SmartSuite automations.

Connect SmartSuite to Relay if you haven't already, then fill out the necessary details. You can reference fields from Google Slides to automatically pass along the right data.


Turn on the playbook

When you are done with the playbook, it's time to turn it on.

The playbook will now run automatically whenever a presentation is added to a folder in Google Slides. You can also click "Check now" to do a manual check whenever you'd like.
