Not sure if this is user error or really a bug but I noticed 2 issues with the syncing of Gmail into Coda based on label criteria.
I am not seeing my full list of Gmail labels when I set up the sync in Coda.
When I did import a few emails into Coda, I noticed the label column showed only the default labels (inbox, category_promotion, unread) instead of the labels I gave those emails (on Gmail side, I can see those labels.)
I can’t tell if these issues are on Gmail side or Coda side (or user side). Any help fixing this is much appreciated. Thanks!
Thanks for reaching out about these issues.
I personally only have 1 label setup in Gmail so not sure if this is a quantity issue on our end which we can work to resolve. Would love some clarifications if you’re able to provide them?
- You mentioned not seeing the full list of Gmail labels when you sync. How many are you seeing and how many are you missing?
- I’m seeing my custom label flow through to Coda, Are all custom labels missing here or just the ones that are also missing from the first bullet point?
So what I figured out was the labels do show up in Coda but there is an unusual long delay for updates to be reflected on Coda side.
I had to wait 5-10+ minutes to see the updated label list in the sync criteria - which isn’t too bad. However, if I added a label to an email on Gmail side, that email in Coda’s table would not show that label. (hence, I couldn’t use the sync label criteria right away).
I don’t know how long it actually took for the table to update the label column but it did update after a day or two. So, the Gmail pack does work but there is such a long delay to get labels updated - at least for me.
I just tried testing this and it seems to update the label column on the next sync. So if your table is set to sync once a day it could take a day for it to update but you can run a manual sync to get it to flow in earlier.
If that doesn’t work, I can look into it further.
