NOTE: Access to the Automation module requires adding a subscription to the module to your DEAR Inventory paid plan. See Adding Trials of the POS, B2B, API and Automation Modules to Paid Plans for more information.

Add Contacts to Mailing List

[back to top]

Contacts can be added to an already created mailing list from Settings → Reference Books → Company Contacts.

Configure email sender

[back to top]

You can configure the email sender, changing which email address appears in the From field. This is configured from General Settings → Organisation

You can either choose currently logged-in user which will use the email of the current user whose actions trigger sending the email, or the default company billing address set in Reference Books → Company Contacts

Both of these settings have a sent from the system option which will send the email from the selected email address, but will display to the receiver as the company name instead. This option can help stop emails from ending up in the Junk/Spam folder of your customers.
