Source: Never miss a beat—new integrations make it easy to insert content, trigger actions within Gmail from Google Cloud
Raise your hand if you’ve ever had to attach a doc, insert an image or paste data from another app in an email? Now keep that hand up if that process took more time than you would have liked. You are not alone. Research shows that workers spend up to 8 hours per week searching for, or consolidating, information. Whether it’s digging through various file folders to find and attach a document, or hopping from your project management or CRM app to copy-paste links in email, all of that back-and-forth adds up.
This changes today with Compose Actions in Gmail Add-ons. Compose Actions make it easy for you to add attachments, reference records, or liven up your messages with content from your favorite third-party apps right as you draft your message in Gmail.
Stay in the flow
We first previewed compose actions at Google Cloud Next ‘18 and are proud to make it generally available today to all Gmail users with four fantastic integrations you can try right away (with more on the way).
Convenient and secure
Compose Actions is a new feature of Gmail Add-ons, which means the moment you authorize action with the feature, they will work in Gmail across mobile and web. G Suite admins can also easily whitelist the add-ons they want to enable for their organization.
