Gmail connector

What is Gmail?

Gmail is one of the most widely used email services. It keeps track of all your emails with threaded conversations, tags, and a Google-powered search to help you find any message.

About Kissflow's Gmail integration

Kissflow Integration's Gmail connector lets you connect Gmail instantly with other Kissflow apps and popular third-party applications to automate your work. To integrate with Gmail, you must have a valid Gmail account and be a paid customer of Kissflow. You can use the Gmail connector to receive data from other flows or apps to perform specific actions in Gmail.
