How to set up automation

You'll need to create an Albato account if you don't already have one. In Albato you can set up automated workflows, or Automations, that move information from one app to another.

Go to the Automations tab. Click the Create new automation button.

The first thing you need to do is set up a trigger.

Triggers are events that trigger an automation. All triggers run in real time; that is, data is transferred the moment the event occurs.


  • Choose Gmail (receiving emails).
  • Choose the trigger from the drop-down list. In this example we choose New email.
  • Specify your Gmail (receiving emails) connection.

You can connect your Gmail (receiving emails) account to Albato by following these instructions if you haven't already done so.

You can also add any filters or conditions (e.g., emails from a specific sender or with a specific tag).

Click the Continue button and move on to the next step to set up an action.

Actions are what Albato performs when your automation is running. Actions also allow you to transfer data to other apps and systems.
