The Send Email action delivers email from a generic email address (i.e. email@example.com).
The Send Email action allows users to tap a Component and trigger an email to be sent using prefilled fields for the recipient(s), Subject, and Body fields.
Configuring the Send Email action
You can send an email whenever an action is triggered in your project. This can be done through button presses, list item selections, and much more.
When using the Send Email action, the following configuration options are available:
- To: The email address or addresses you want to send the message to.
- CC: Send a copy of the email to someone who is not the recipient listed in the To field. This can also include multiple email addresses as a comma-separated list.
- BCC: Send a copy of the email to someone who is not the recipient listed in the To field. This can also include multiple email addresses as a comma-separated list. When using BCC, the recipients cannot view the other recipients who may be included in the BCC field, but they can view the email addresses that are included in the To and CC fields.
- Subject: The subject of the email message.
- Body: The body text of the email message.
- Reply to: The email address that the recipient will reply to if they reply to the email they receive.
Send Email to Attendees
The Send Email action can be used as an action in the components of your project (like Buttons, Collections, and much more), or it can be triggered along with other actions as part of a Custom Action. One thing you could do is add an action that sends an email to users that have signed up for an event. The custom action below checks if a user’s email is included in a list of event attendees. If they have signed up, they’ll receive an email when the button is pressed. If they haven’t signed up, they’ll be presented with a sign-up form for the event.
You can create a dynamic email by first creating a Template Column in the Data Editor. By using a Template column for something like the body of an email, you can personalize the message to each user, and the values will update as your data changes. Once you’ve created a template column, you can select it as the source for the fields in your Send Email action.
