Getting Started With Gmail

Prerequisites

  • A Google account

In order to use Gmail with Integromat, it is necessary to have a Google account. If you do not have one, you can create a Google account at accounts.google.com.

Connecting Gmail to Integromat

To connect your Gmail account to Integromat as a Google Workspace user (formerly G Suite), follow the general instructions for Connecting to services.

If you are a @gmail.com or @googlemail.com user, you'll need to create an OAuth client on the Google Cloud Platform in order to obtain the Client ID and Client Secret.
For step-by-step instructions on how to create the OAuth client (and obtain the Client ID and Client Secret), please refer to the Connecting Integromat To Google Services Using a Custom OAuth Client documentation, or watch the video tutorial below.

To find out whether you are a G Suite user or @gmail user, please see the Google API restrictions (Do I have a G Suite account? section) article.

Tips & Tricks

To insert your default signature and company logo into Gmail's Send an email module:

1. First, you will need to use the Watch emails module to retrieve an email that contains your signature and logo. Then, copy the HTML content from the output bundle as shown below:

2. Then, in the body field of the Send an email module, copy and paste the HTML content, or edit until you are left with a similar HTML code: 

<div dir="ltr">

<div>
<div class="gmail_signature" dir="ltr" data-smartmail="gmail_signature">
<div dir="ltr">{{5.text}}</div>
<div dir="ltr">&nbsp;</div>
