Create your playbook and set the Gmail trigger as "Email received"

Every playbook starts with a 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 "Email received" under Gmail. Then, select the necessary details. This will allow your playbook to automatically detect the newly received 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 "Send message" in Teams automation

Integrate the Teams automation into your playbook to ensure the prompt sending of a message in Teams for each new email received in Gmail.

Click the "Add step" button, then locate the "Send message" automation for Teams and input the mandatory and relevant details.

If your Teams 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 Teams account.

3

Activate your Relay.app playbook

Activating your playbook is the final step to automate sending of a message in Teams. Once turned on, it will respond to each new email received in Gmail by sending a message to Teams 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.
