We built a Mail Merge add-on for Airtable. Check it out!
You can send personalized emails based on information in your base. It’s open-source (< 30 lines of Python), so you can edit how the entire add-on works yourself too.
Here’s how to enable it:
Install Blockspring Scripts for Chrome.
Go to a base. You might need to refresh the page once you get there if you just installed the extension.
Click the icon in the bottom left to open the scripts editor.
Import the “Mail merge” template.
Wait for the template to install. This may take a bit the first time.
Sign in with Gmail.
Close the editor then click on
mail_merge in your base.
Fill out the form! You’ll need to select a column of emails, enter a subject line, and then write your email template (check out the video below for examples - it uses the mustache library).
Here’s a video showing how the add-on works.
Enjoy! And shoot us some feedback once you get a chance to try it out.
PS - if you want to change the code behind the add-on, just click back on the icon and edit away.
