So one of the features that I miss about Highrise (one of the very few) was the email dropbox that automatically matched emails with current opportunities and contacts.
We're attempting to build a webhook script that will take emails forwarded to the "Interactions" App, and automatically add those interactions to the corresponding "Organizations" app. An Organization Item has Associated Google Contacts. So, if an interaction is from or to an email address of an Associated Google Contact, that Interaction is associated with that Organization.
We have a company-wide Google Script that forwards any emails placed in a certain Gmail label with the To:, From:, and Dates of the email appended to the top of the body. Ideas is to use this information to match emails with organizations and apply correct dates to interactions.
So far, the code is rough. I would very much appreciate anyone willing to contribute that sees the value in this. If anyone is attempting to use Podio as a CRM, this is a must, and sets the framework for building some really powerful App interactions.
Please feel free to edit the code directly if you have any ideas. It currently does not work.... and there are some obvious bugs.
