Send Email

The Send Email workflow module allows you to send an email to one or more recipients using either plain text or HTML you define in Bridge, or by using SendGrid's dynamic templates which can be populated from the Bridge workflow

Send Email fields

To: The email recipients. This can either be a single email, a comma-separated list of emails, or an array of emails supplied by another module.

From: The email address of the sender.

Email Type: The type of email that you want to send, either a Custom email where you can specify the email subject and body, or a Dynamic Template email where you can specify the dynamic template and any data source that will be used to replace values in the template.

Subject: The subject for the custom email.

Plain Text Body: The contents of the custom email in plain text.

HTML Body: The contents of the custom email as HTML. The plain text is still required when you give HTML content to help support email clients that do not support HTML.

Template ID: The ID of the template for dynamic template emails.

Dynamic Data: A map of data that links to the dynamic data in the template.

  • The key will match the handlebar reference used in the dynamic template. For example, if you have the following: {{subject}} in your template, you pass subject as the key and anything you want as a value.
  • The value can also be an object from other bridge modules so you could have complex references like {{row.cell.Date.value}} when you pass the result of a Get Row module as the dynamic data value.

Advanced Options: Additional options that allow you to add additional details or schedule when the email is sent.

Send email at time: Allows you to specify a time, in UTC Unix format, for when the email should be sent from SendGrid.

  • The easiest way to define the correct time is to use our Date/Time extension modules as those modules will return a date/time expressed in the correct Unix format.

CC: The email addresses that will receive a copy of the email. This can either be a single email, a comma-separated list of emails, or an array of emails supplied by another module.

BCC: The email addresses that will receive a blind carbon copy of the email. This can either be a single email, a comma-separated list of emails, or an array of emails supplied by another module.

Reply To: The email address of the individual who should receive responses to your email.
