      How do I manage my Emails & Templates?

      Emails & Templates allow you to customize the Subject and Body in the emails sent to your Clients, as well as a custom Email Signature to deliver a great client experience. You can also manage your email notifications sent to you based on certain activity in your account. 

      Emails & Templates are available on trials, Premium and Select plans only.

       

       

      Emails to Clients

      Customize the emails to your Clients by editing the Subject and Body as well as using Dynamic Fields (also known as dynamic variables and placeholder text) to auto-populate specific details. These templates are available to be edited:

      FAQs

      Which email address do my Clients see when they receive an email sent from my account?

      The email listed in your My Profile is the email used on any communications sent out from your account to your Clients and Team Members. Any comments left by the Client on an Invoice, Estimate or Proposal will go back to this email.

      If a Team Member created the Invoice, Estimate or Proposal, the Team Member’s email is used instead, and this Team Member will also receive any comments from the Client directly.
