    Default Lightflow not working for Gmail

    Here are 3 screenshots showing my setup.

    Notice how in image #1 Gmail isn't highlighted or colored? Then in image #2 I have the Priority Inbox highlighted only. Then image #3 Lightflow is Enabled.

    No matter what I do, I cannot get Lightflow to work when I receive an email using Gmail. Please help this is frustrating.

    FYI I have the latest Gmail 4.5 and LightFlow 3.7.1

    My guess is that you have to turn on notifications for the new "tabs" or whatever they are called within the Gmail app itself. If you have not already, give that a shot and see what happens.

    You are correct! Thank-you. I turned on the following items and now Lightflow shows me the Blue light! One minor issue, is that image #1 from my first post, the Gmail square is still NOT lit up/highlighted.

    These are the items I turned on.

    Not to worry. The Gmail square itself doesn't light up or become highlighted; only the individual labels that you want notifications for will be highlighted. In your first picture, look at the Gmail square. See that folder icon? From what i can tell, apps with that icon don't get highlighted, only their labels/cards do, a'la Gmail and Google Now. So long as you have a color assigned to whichever Gmail labels you'd like to be notified for, you're good to go.

    Thanks JTM for pointing that out! I didn't notice the little folder icon.

    From your screenshot, are you also getting notifications for email that are not in your priority inbox?

    Adding for posterity, since this is the #1 hit when Googling for this problem: if you are using Light Flow in conjunction with the Gmail Mark as Read app, you will need to reconfigure Light Flow to work off that app's notification (not native gmail). You therefore lose the granularity to do label specific notifications.
