Why you should connect your Gmail profile to Briefmatic
Connecting your Gmail profile to your Briefmatic account allows you to see, review and resolve all your starred emails from within Briefmatic or from within the email itself if you click on the option to “Go to Item.”
How to connect your Gmail profile to Briefmatic
To connect your google drive profile to your Briefmatic account follow these steps;
Go to the Connections tab, click on the “Connect” button on the Gmail card and follow the prompts to authorise the connection. Briefmatic requires this approval to be able to scan your emails to find starred emails and allow you to view and resolve emails from within Briefmatic.
Once the connection is enabled the syncing process will begin in the background and this may take a few minutes to complete depending on the number of starred emails you have.
