Track Gmail with Yoke uses Gmail APIs to track unread emails in your Inbox, starred messages in your account and messages matching any Gmail query.

About the integration

Yoke uses OAuth2 and secure REST APIs to connect to Gmail.

Card Types

You can track the following measures in your Gmail account:

  • Unread threads in the Inbox matching various categories
  • Starred messages
  • Messages matching a Gmail query

Slack integration

You can query your Gmail cards from Slack using slash commands.

Automatic bookmarks in Chrome

The Yoke Auto-Bookmarks Extension turns the mails picked up by your Yoke-Gmail cards into bookmarks in Chrome. The bookmark will directly take you to the corresponding email in Gmail.

Tips for Yoke users

Gmail is one of the most popular cloud-hosted email services. Here are some tips on tracking Gmail with Yoke:

For web users

Gmail users who primarily use the web-interface will be able to track unread items in multiple accounts using Yoke. Yoke allows you to control whether or not you would like to see mails categorized as Primary, Social, Promotions or Updates.

Note: You need to be signed into all your Gmail accounts to jump from Yoke to your Gmail message or search.

For the "Inbox Zero" user

You can use the 'star' feature in Gmail to mark messages that require a well thought-through response, and track starred emails as a Yoke card. This helps you quickly get your unread message count to 0 and process the starred messages at your convenience.

For filter mavens

Gmail offers powerful filtering options to automatically label your emails and move them out of the Inbox. If you use rules to separate promotions from work from home-related emails, you can create Yoke cards using Gmail search strings that capture different types of emails.

One-Click Archive

Yoke supports One-Click Archive to archive/move any message/thread in Yoke card to any folder you select when creating the card. This provides a quick way to process items and either archive them or move them to a "Next-Action" folder.
