How to integrate Boomtown

In this guide, you'll learn how to integrate Showable with a Boomtown account. Once completed, your open house and virtual tour leads will be pushed to your Boomtown account instantly and automatically.

How to integrate Showable and Boomtown

Add your Gmail or Google Workspace email above

Save your Gmail or Google Workspace (Google Apps) email address above. Showable will begin sending new lead notification emails to that address formatted for Boomtown email parsing. Now, proceed to "Set up email forwarding in Gmail".

Set up email forwarding in Gmail

  1. Login to your Gmail account. Click on the settings gear icon in the top right corner. In the drop-down that displays, select "Settings". 
  2. Next, click on the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab. 
  3. Then click the "Add a forwarding address" button. 
  4. In the pop-up that displays, paste your unique BoomTown email address (ends with @MyBoomTownLeads.Me) into the provided field and click "Next". To find your unique Boomtown email address, login to Boomtown and in the sidebar menu, select "Tools", then "Auto-Import Leads". Click the blue button "Get Started" in the "Supported Lead Sources" section. 
  5. In the next window, select "Proceed" to request that a confirmation code is sent to you to complete the set up process. 
  6. Within a few minutes, an email will be sent to the email address you are setting up email forwarding in with that confirmation code. The email will come from and will be titled "Gmail Forwarding Confirmation Code". 
  7. Once you receive that email, copy the code then go back into your settings to enter the code that was sent and click "Verify" to complete that step. 
  8. Select "OK". The pop-up will disappear and you will see the email address under "Add a forwarding address". 
  9. When you're back on the Forwarding and POP/IMAP page, make sure to leave Disable Forwarding selected - this should be selected by default, so it may already be selected.

Set up filter in Gmail

  1. Once you've set up forwarding, you'll need to set a filter to start forwarding only the emails from supported sources to Boomtown. 
  2. Click on the "Filters" tab in your Gmail settings (to the left of the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab) 
  3. Select "Create a new filter". In the pop up that displays, enter "" in the From field. 
  4. Select "Create filter with this search". 
  5. On the next screen that displays, check the box beside "Forward it to". From the drop-down menu, select your email address that ends in "@MyBoomTownLeads.Me." 
  6. Select "Create Filter" to add this filter to your filter list.
