Within Gmail, is there any way to automatically forward an email when I apply a label?
Gmail filters appear to only work with new emails. For my needs, applying the label is a manual process after the email was received.
Web Applications is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about web applications.
We're a little bit different from other sites. Here's how:
This site is all about getting answers. It's not a discussion forum. There's no chit-chat.
Good answers are voted up and rise to the top.
The best answers show up first so that they are always easy to find.
The person who asked can mark one answer as "accepted".
Accepting doesn't mean it's the best answer, it just means that it worked for the person who asked.
The 3rd-party service ifttt (if this then that) makes this possible. Use the first Gmail trigger "New email labeled...". It doesn't have to be a new email, just newly labeled. May take a bit to trigger.
No, sorry. The only automation available is Gmail Filters, which act on messages as they arrive. There's nothing built-in to Gmail that allows something to happen when a label is added to a message (unless it's part of a filter acting on an incoming message).
Focus on questions about an actual problem you have faced. Include details about what you have tried and exactly what you are trying to do.
Not all questions work well in our format. Avoid questions that are primarily opinion-based, or that are likely to generate discussion rather than answers.
Questions that need improvement may be closed until someone fixes them.
