The older version of Gmail had a useful feature that could let you quickly save an e-mail message in Gmail as being a Google Document within your Google Drive. You can open an email thread inside Gmail, pick the Develop a Document menu option (see screenshot) and the message could be exported to Google Docs.
The Save as Google Document feature is not offered in Gmail but should you use Gmail inside Chrome, or have one of several official Gmail mobile apps, you can use Google Cloud Print to save lots of your email messages as PDF files inside Google Drive, one at a time.
It functions likes this. Open an e-mail message in Save emails to PDF, choose the Print option and choose Send To Google Drive as being the destination printer available under Google Cloud Print. It would save the message as being a PDF file within your Drive. If your email contains any attachments, they arent saved to operate a vehicle.
Theres a greater alternative thought that works everywhere. All you could to perform is apply the label PDF to any email thread in Gmail as well as the message, along with all the included file attachments, will get saved to the Drive.
Unlike Cloud Print that may only save individual email messages, this choice will save a batch of messages automatically. Just apply the label PDF to one or more emails and a copy of those message can be exported to Google Drive in few minutes.
Heres how you can setup the Google Script to your Gmail account.
Install the Save Emails as PDF add-on in your Google drive.
In the Accessories menu, visit Save Emails, Create New rule and choose a Gmail folder from your dropdown. It is really an open-source Google Script and it is not going to share your computer data with anyone.
Choose a folder with your Google Drive that will create the rule. The sheet will begin saving your messages PDFs in drive in an hour. Or visit Saves Emails Manage Rules to t0PDF any Gmail message as PDF in Drive.
Save PDF and Email Attachments in Drive
The premium edition of Save Gmail to Google Drive program unlocks more features. It enables you to save file attachments as well as email PDFs to Google Drives, all of the inline images are rendered inside the PDF and the flow of conversation is also preserved in the saved PDF document.
The greatest thing here is that you can save your Gmail emails to Google Drive as PDFs from anywhere and not simply Google Chrome or Gmails mobile app. Just apply the label PDF on the t0PDF and the script will take care of the remainder.
And also since the saved PDFs will automatically download to your desktop if the Google Drive client is running, you can use this tool to continually gain access to your important emails even when you are offline mode.
