Scheduled Gmail Watch Ignores Start Date

I have a Gmail Watch Emails module in a scenario. When I manually run the scenario, I can specify a start date to look for emails after that date, and it works perfectly. However, when I schedule this scenario, it ignores the start date setting and only looks for new emails.

How can I make a scheduled scenario respect the “Emails from after a specific date” option in the Gmail Watch Emails module?

1. Screenshots of module fields and filters

Please share screenshots of relevant module fields and filters in question? It would really help other community members to see what you’re looking at.

You can upload images here using the Upload icon in the text editor:

2. Scenario blueprint

Please export the scenario blueprint file to allow others to view the mappings and settings. At the bottom of the scenario editor, you can click on the three dots to find the Export Blueprint menu item.

(Note: Exporting your scenario will not include private information or keys to your connections)

Uploading it here will look like this:

3. And most importantly, Input/Output bundles

Please provide the input and output bundles of the modules by running the scenario (or get from the scenario History tab), then click the white speech bubble on the top-right of each module and select “Download input/output bundles”.


Save each bundle contents in your text editor as a bundle.txt file, and upload it here into this discussion thread.

Uploading them here will look like this:

module-1-input-bundle.txt (12.3 KB)
module-1-output-bundle.txt (12.3 KB)


If you are unable to upload files on this forum, alternatively you can paste the formatted bundles in this manner:

  • Either add three backticks ``` before and after the code, like this:

    input/output bundle content goes here

  • Or use the format code button in the editor:

Providing the input/output bundles will allow others to replicate what is going on in the scenario even if they do not use the external service.

Following these steps will allow others to assist you here. Thanks!

You can see it in Gmail Watch Email, I have added the gmail filter
subject:(Contact request from Jag website) AND newer_than:30d

But the output only fetches the emails from 20th May this is when the scheduled ran last time. But when i run it manually and select a date from “Emails from after a specific date” option, it returns all the emails.

Hey @Anjum_Banaras

In polling triggers, it process the data one by one. If you want to run the data from specific date. You can choose the date manually and save the scenario. It will run the data from that date one by one if the data exist. But it won’t run always from that specific date as it processes always new data not the one that is already processed.
