Adding a Forwarding address
Click the 'Settings' icon → select 'Settings' → select the 'Forwarding and POP/IMAP' tab → select 'Add a forwarding address'
A pop up will appear
Paste the forwarding address into the field
Click Add → Proceed
You will then see another pop up stating 'A confirmation code has been sent to email@example.com to verify permission'
- If you have added an eDesk address, you will receive an email from Google in eDesk with a confirmation code
Copy the confirmation code and paste it into the highlighted field in Gmail
Once this is done, select to 'Forward a copy of incoming mail to' and select the address from the dropdown
There is also an option to select what happens the ticket inside Gmail after it has been forwarded to the address
If you have one generic email address for all messages and don't want every single message to forward to eDesk, you can set up Filters inside Gmail
Creating a filter
Click the 'Settings' icon → select 'Settings' → select the 'Filters and Blocked Addresses' tab → Create a new filter
Enter the details of the emails you would like to 'catch'
In the above example:
Any email that has @shopify.com in the From address AND has the word 'Order' in the subject will match your filter
Click 'Create filter'
A pop up will appear to select what happens to the messages that match the filter
This will allow you to forward only certain messages to eDesk
