What is Google Chat Connector?
The Google Chat Connector is a tool designed to enhance communication and collaboration within teams. It seamlessly integrates with Google Chat, offering a range of features to streamline interactions, automate workflows, and monitor progress.
About Kissflow's Google Chat Connector Integration
Kissflow's Google Chat Connector allows you to effortlessly integrate Google Chat with various third-party applications and Kissflow workflows. You must have a valid Google Chat account and be a paid Kissflow customer in order to integrate with Google Chat.
If your workflow involves responding to specific events in Google Chat, such as sending messages or triggering automated processes, the Google Chat Connector simplifies these tasks. By connecting Google Chat with other applications and workflows, you can automate actions and ensure a smooth flow of work.
For now, the connector for Google Sheets does not support any trigger events.
