Once you have setup your email import (read this article) all the selected emails are imported to the Email tab. From here you can either save the email in the system or create a new task based on the email.
Clicking on this button allows you to save the email to a job, a resource (customer, prospects, supplier, employee etc.), a pipeline or either a creditor or debtor. You can then search in the drop down menus highlighted below to specify the receiver and a job.
Once an email has been saved it will be saved in the Mail tab in the documents tab on the job.
Clicking on this button allows you to create a new task based on the email. You can use this if for example you get an email from a customer and want to assign somebody to work on the issue right away. It’s quite like creating a regular task. The only thing that differs is that the allocated employee is able to see the email as being the briefing.
Should you want to modify the email before it’s being added to the to-do list, click the “OK & Edit” button instead of the “OK & Close” button
If you want to email a file already uploaded to a folder (ie on a job), you can click on the email button as seen below.
It will then open the Compose new email window and under the Attachments tab, you can see the file. From here you can also add additional files.
If you want to have a copy of the email, type in your own email address in the BCC field. If the system can find a contact person to email to, it will suggest that persons email in the To: field (if you have related a contact to a job, or added a contact to the Att. of an invoice for example).
You can add a recipient from the following resources:
– Job contacts
– Customer contact
– Job project manager
– Job customer responsible
– Job sales responsible
– Job production responsible
– Job team members
– Supplier contact used on purchase order
Any emails being sent from the system are saved automatically when the Archive option is on (seen in the left hand corner of the email window):
Your email signature can be changed by opening My settings:
