Automatically add new Gmail Label based on variable


I have created a step-by-step which involves creating a new Project in Paymo. I want to use the Paymo Unique ID to be added to the gmail as a new label. The goal is to associate the email attachments to the correct project. There can be multiple emails all arriving at different times and there is no guarantee what the subject will be so no text pattern to use. They can also come WITHOUT text, so it’s up to me to manually open the emails and assign them to the project. I think the easiest solution I could come up with was to automatically create the label from the Paymo project and then as emails come, I can manually add the correct label which will cause the attachments to be saved in the proper google drive folder.

Welcome to the Make community!

The Gmail integration in Make doesn’t have a module to create/modify/delete labels, even when the routes exist in the Gmail API.

Unfortunately, there is also no generic Gmail “Make an API call” module. To integrate the endpoints in Make, you will have to use the generic HTTP “Make a request” module.

You can also suggest for it to be made in the Idea exchange. Don’t forget to search for it first, in case someone already suggested it!

thank you so much for the information. I saw that a competitor DOES have this, so I will look to see if anyone has already made this suggestion in the idea exchange and propose it if no one has.

Thanks again for the prompt response and assistance!



You can use the Gmail custom app explained below to create labels easily:
