1

Create your Relay.app playbook

Begin by setting up the steps that coordinate between Gmail and Google Sheets for your workflow.

First, sign up for Relay.app and go to your dashboard. Click on the "New playbook" button to initiate the playbook creation process.

Name your playbook with a unique title like "Add sent Gmail emails to Google Sheets" and select a relevant emoji, such as 📝, to easily identify it.

2

Set the Gmail trigger as "Email sent"

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 "Email sent" under Gmail. Then, select mandatory and relevant details. This trigger will automatically detect all the newly sent emails 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.

3

Add the "Add row to sheet" in Google Sheets automation

Integrate the Google Sheets automation into your playbook to promptly add a new row to a sheet in Google Sheets for specific emails sent in Gmail.

Click the "Add step" button, then locate the "Add row to sheet" from the list of Google Sheets automation and input the mandatory and relevant details.

If your Google Sheets 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 Sheets account.

4

Activate your Relay.app playbook

Activating your playbook is the final step to automate the addition of a new row in Google Sheets. Once turned on, it will respond to detected specific email that is sent in Gmail by adding it as a record in Google Sheets as a new row 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.
