Interacting with imported emails

Learn how Gmail emails behave inside Sunsama


How to use

Imported tasks · 0:12

Once a Gmail email is imported into Sunsama, it becomes a Sunsama task, with the email thread and Gmail actions embedded inside the Sunsama task. You can tell which tasks in your Kanban are imported from Gmail via the Gmail icon on the card. Clicking on this icon will bring you to the email in Gmail.

Gmail email details · 0:35

The embedded details from Gmail in the Sunsama task will show the thread and conversation of emails.

Within these embedded details, you can browse and collapse the emails in the thread.

You can also take several actions on the email in Gmail:

  • Open in Gmail
  • Archive
  • Move to trash
  • Mark as unread


By setting up Automations, you can automatically update the email upon importing and/or completing it in Sunsama. This is explored on the next page.

Your associated Sunsama task acts like a worksheet for your Gmail email. Inside your Sunsama task, you can add notes, time tracking information, subtasks, and comments, all of which will not sync back to Gmail. Use your Sunsama task to track the minutia of the task itself.
