Keeping up with emails you need to take an action on can be difficult, but by applying a specific term, you can create a new order in Shippo for further action. Once you set up this Gmail-Shippo integration, whenever you get a new email matching your search term in Gmail, Appy Pie Connect will automatically create a new order in Shippo, without any manual effort on your part. This allows you to easily create shipping labels for new orders without having to wait or enter the information yourself.

For those of you who don't know what Google Docs is, it is an online word processing program that allows you to create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with others. It is part of Google Drive which is a cloud based storage system. Another thing that you may not know about Google Docs is that it is integrated with Shippo which is a platform that allows companies to directly connect with their customers.
Google and Shippo announced they will be integrating their systems in late 2015. This integration will allow customers to view their orders within Google Docs and vice versa. Orders will show up in your Google Docs as a spreadsheet. You can even edit your order right from the spreadsheet, as well as see tracking information for your shipment. Essentially you can do everything on your Google Docs that you can do with Shippo. This integration answers a lot of people's questions about why you would need both programs. Now you can have all your tracking information in one place. You can also easily add tracking numbers to your existing Google Docs without having to download anything. This will also make the process of preparing multiple shipments much easier since you will not have to switch between programs.
There are a lot of benefits to this integration. One benefit is that more people are going to be using Google Docs because they now have a use for the program. However, most people already use Shippo so there is little risk of people losing interest in either program. The main benefit though, is that it will make life easier for those who use both programs regularly. Instead of needing to switch between different programs and download things if they want tracking information, they can do everything from one program.
I believe this new integration will have a positive impact on both programs because it provides a much needed service for users. Since many people already use Shippo, it is likely to continue growing in popularity. Some may think that now that these two programs are integrated, Google Docs is no longer necessary, but I'm sure it will still be used by many people because it does not replace Shippo at all; it just makes things easier.
The process to integrate Google Docs and Shippo may seem complicated and intimidating. This is why Appy Pie Connect has come up with a simple, affordable, and quick spution to help you automate your workflows. Click on the button below to begin.
