Send Custom E-mail

The Send Custom Email Action Button lets you create templates to send emails that contain values saved in your database. Users can directly press this Action Button to send emails to specific email addresses.

This feature is useful for sending interview invitations, order confirmations, or purchase details to vendors.

Setting up an Action Button to Send Custom E-Mail

Navigate to the Design Mode on your Form Page and click Form Tools > Send Custom E-mail under the Custom Buttons section.

In the pop-up window, you can design the email template using HTML formatting and the variables. Check all supported variables here.

Click on the preview button to confirm the custom email.

If you decide to use our default template instead, use will discard all the changes you've made.

Furthermore, you can attach a URL, Excel, PDF, or Mail Merge file of the record, or other attachments.

If you attach the URL of the record, please ensure that the recipients have Access Rights to the entry. Otherwise, they'll see a blank page when they access the database through the entry URL.

Remember to "Save" before exiting the window.

Automatically Sending Custom Email When Saving

You can check Automatically run when saving in advanced settings if you want to automatically execute this Action Button after saving.

Running in Asynchronous Mode

If the Excel or PDF file of this record is included, it may need more time to complete this action. Checking Running in asynchronous mode in advanced settings can shorten your waiting time but cannot guarantee when the email will be sent.

Note: It is NOT suggested to add an asynchronous button into a combined button.

History of Sending Custom E-Mail

After sending a custom email, you can click on the mail icon to view the custom email history.
