Gmail to Evernote with Google Scripts

Published in: Gmail - Google Apps Script

The Gmail to Evernote program will automatically send your Gmail message to your Evernote account using Google Scripts. It reads the various parameters from a Google sheet (like the default tag name and Evernote notebook name) and forwards the matching email threads to Evernote using the GmailApp service.

    var sheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();

    var params = sheet.getRange("D3:D7").getValues();

    // Gmail Label name to Monitor
    var label = GmailApp.getLabelByName(params[1][0].trim().replace(/\\s+/g, "-"));

    var threads = label.getThreads();

    for (var t in threads) {

      var messages = threads[t].getMessages();

        // Forward the latest message in the thread to Evernote
        var message = messages[messages.length-1];

        // Append the Evernote notebook and tag to the subject
        var subject = [message.getSubject(), params[2][0], params[3][0]].join(" ");

        try {
          message.forward(params[0][0], {subject: subject});
        } catch (f) {
          Logger.log(f.toString());
        }

        // Trash the message after forwarding to Evernote
        if (params[2][0].match(/y/i)) {
          threads[t].moveToTrash();
        } else {
          threads[t].removeLabel(label);
        }

    }
