How to integrate popular apps with HeySpace
HeySpace + Gmail
You can create a Zap thanks to which certain words or phrases in a subject line will automatically create a new card in your selected space in HeySpace. For instance, set a Zap to create a new task card every time you receive an email with the phrase “new assignment” or “new task” in the subject line. Additionally, you can set the Zap in such a way that information such as the subject line, body, attachments, name and email, labels and many more are automatically added to the task card. Thanks to that, you won’t have to do it manually and you’ll save time!
At first, decide which emails will trigger automation:
Then choose where the card will be created and what its content will include:
Automating the task creation can be based on various elements of an email. You can filter your emails using Google search operators.
HeySpace + Google Docs
If you use Google Docs, you might be interested in how integrate it with HeySpace through Zapier in order to automate your work. Let’s say you have a spreadsheet with your clients’ orders. One idea which could be useful is that every time a new row is added in the spreadsheet, a message is generated in your space in HeySpace to notify all team members involved in the order. In the message, you can insert particular details of the order, such as the name of the client, the order value, and so on. Thanks to that, everyone in your team will be on the same page and you will be sure they have all the information they need to process the order.

When it comes to your marketing activities, you certainly use social media a lot and so you might want to integrate HeySpace with your fanpages, for example on Facebook. To keep up with what’s going on in your Facebook page, you can create a Zap which will notify your marketing team in a suitable space every time you get a new recommendation on Facebook. Thanks to that, they will be able to react immediately and make sure it’s not overlooked. You can attach the content of the recommendation to the message which will be sent to your marketing team, so that they will have everything they need directly in HeySpace.

The message can include the content of the Tweet which would make it very easy for them to react.
