Streamline Your Email Workflow: Forward Emails Effortlessly with Zapier

Published on Feb 28th, 2024

**In the fast-paced digital world, managing your emails effectively can be a significant time saver. For professionals and businesses looking to streamline their workflow, Zapier offers an invaluable tool for automating repetitive tasks, including the ability to forward emails automatically. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to set up email forwarding with Zapier:

  1. Sign Up or Log In to Zapier: Begin by signing up for a Zapier account or logging in if you already have one.

  2. Create a Zap: Zapier uses 'Zaps' to automate tasks. Click on 'Make a Zap' to get started with creating your email forwarding Zap.

  3. Choose Your Email App: Select the email service you use, such as Gmail, as the trigger app. This will be the source from where emails will be forwarded.

  1. Set Up the Trigger: Choose the trigger event, which would typically be 'New Email' or 'New Email in Label/Folder’. Customize the trigger by specifying the label or search criteria to filter the emails you want to forward.

  2. Test the Trigger: Zapier will prompt you to test the trigger to ensure it's picking up the right emails from your inbox.

  3. Set Up Action: After the trigger, you need to set up the action that will take place. Here, you'll choose the email service again but this time as the action app to which the email will be sent.

  1. Customize the Action: Fill in the forwarding details, including the recipient's email address and any additional information that needs to be included in the forwarded message.

  2. Test the Action: Perform a test to confirm that the email is being forwarded correctly to the designated recipient.

  3. Name and Activate Your Zap: Give your Zap a name and turn it on. Zapier will now automatically forward emails according to your configured settings.

With this automation in place, you can ensure important messages are forwarded to colleagues, other departments, or even to your personal email without the need for manual intervention. By leveraging Zapier's email forwarding capability, you can focus on more critical tasks while the routine work is handled automatically.
