Happy Friday community!

I wanted to let everyone know about a handy update to the 3 current email actions available in our Automations feature:

  1. Send an email
  2. Outlook email: Send email
  3. Gmail: Send email

You can now preview an email that you are crafting, before testing any of these actions! This means no more multiple email tests before getting the formatting of the email the way you want it to look. Here’s an example using the “Gmail: Send email” action:

gmailPreviewEmail_7_16_21

This feature also allows you to more easily see which test record is being used by our system so you can let a collaborator or client know to disregard any test emails that are sent while you finalize your automation’s setup.

Note that the “To”, “Subject”, and “Message” fields must be filled in for the “Preview email” button to become clickable.

My workmate, Rose, will have another update later today, so keep an eye out! 👀
