Today we have added support for a new Ingredient in Netvibes Potions. You can now use Gmail as a Trigger or an Action in your Potions. Let’s see how it works.
Netvibes Potions allow you to automate actions and alerts from your dashboard by selecting the Trigger(s) and Action(s) you want to take place. For example: If a new article is published about MyCompany, then email me and share the link on Twitter. (To learn more about Potions, please visit our FAQ page).
Potion Triggers: Gmail (new!)
I receive an email
This Trigger fires every time your Gmail account receives a new email
Example Potion #1: When I receive a new Gmail message, then text me. Add this potion to your dashboard!
I star an email
This Trigger fires every time you “star” (mark as important) a message in Gmail
As with most Netvibes Potion Ingredients, you can customize the properties of your Potion to do exactly what you want. Using Example Potion #1, let’s say you want to receive a text message only when your boss emails you. To do this, we need to define specific properties of the Potion–in this case, my boss’s email address.
