Automatically put new item in group by name when creating by email

Is there a way to automatically assign an item to a specific group on a board when creating them by email? I have full control over the email being sent… Right now I wish to determine which group by the first word in the item name, but if there’s a way to set status by email, I’d be happy to do that, instead. Or pretty much any other field (is there a way to set other fields when creating by email?)…

Do you had try formulas ?

Hi there @JasonLemonlight !

Gmail has a native integration with that says, “When an email [here you would put conditions on the email] is received, create an item in group”. This will help you gain control of the emails that create items and choose the group you would like them in!

Hope this helps!

this works, but with the mail-integration files can’t ne send to the board, so you have to choose between these two benefits, or am i missing something?


@AdrianL through the integration you are correct. Right now does not support files being mailed in unless you use the item mail-in ID and upload to the updates section.
