Now before moving on, let tell you few things about the add-on we’ll be using. Download Save email is available on Chrome store, all you have to do is download the add-on and set it up. This add-on helps you convert chat messages in PDF file and save it to Google drive. Whenever you are running out of space in Gmail you can use this add-on to move the large attachments to Google drive. Now let’s start the method on Send Gmail to Google drive.

Step3: Now Goto Google docs and click on Add-ons->Save Emails and Attachments->Create New Rule.
Step4: A new page will open in which you have to select the label from Gmail, this process is same as filters in our Gmail account. Click on the label option and drop down menu will appear now choose the label you want to save.
Step5: Once you have selected the label from the list, leave all the fields empty and click on the select folder button and choose the folder you have created in 2nd step.
