Quick Send

In order to send a template to one person very quickly, set up a Quick Send Template and then use the Quick Send feature from the Opportunity, Contact, or Lead records. This would be useful if you send the same email on an individual basis often. For example, if a salesperson routinely makes calls and then sends a follow-up email, they can set up a template for this using the Quick Send feature.

If you’re using ClickDimensions version 8.2.0 or newer, you also have the ability to send Quick Send emails to Opportunities.  Click here to learn how to update your version of the ClickDimensions Solution.

If you’re using ClickDimensions version 8.1.0 or newer, you will need the Quick Send privilege in one of our Security Roles (automatically given to ClickDimensions User and ClickDimensions Service)

Step 1: Set up Email Template as a Quick Send Template

First you will set up the Template as a Quick Send Template. Go to Email Templates by navigating to Marketing > Email Templates.

Create a new one or open one you already have created. In the Quick Send Settings change Quick Send Template to Yes.

Set the rest of the options as you would like them. You are filling out all of the fields that would normally be set on the Email Send.

In the Campaign field you can associate a CRM campaign record. If you associate a CRM Campaign record, you will be able to see all the Sent Email records created from this Quick Send in the CRM Campaign record.

From Record Owner (Required)

The From Record Owner field determines who is listed as the From Name and Email Address. Click to toggle the values from Yes to No. If you select Yes, the From Name and Email Address will come from the owner of the Lead or Contact record that is listed as a recipient. The From Name and From Email address will change dynamically depending upon who the recipient is and which CRM user owns the recipient’s record.

From Name and From Email (Required)

A From Name is required in order to send an Email Send record. It can be the company’s name, a personal name, etc… There are no limits in specifying the From Name.

Any valid email address is allowed in the From Email field. The From Email field will receive any replies or auto-response emails to the email blast.

Note: These fields are still required if you choose Yes in the From Record Owner section. This is to ensure that there is always a from name and email–just in case a record does not have an owner.

Step 2: Send Quick Send Email

Click here if you want to send the Quick Send to the Opportunity record, otherwise, navigate to the Contact or Lead that you would like to send this email to. From the top menu within the Contact, choose ClickDimensions Quick Send.

Sending a Quick Send Email to an Opportunity

Quick Send Emails can be used with Opportunity records.  From the More Commands (ellipses) menu, select ClickDimensions Quick Send.  You will be able to go through the same steps listed above to send a Quick Send email to the Contact associated with the Opportunity if there is one available.

If only the Contact lookup field is populated, the Quick Send will be sent to the Contact listed.

If only the Account lookup field is populated, the Quick Send will be sent to the email address on the Account.

If both the Contact lookup field and Account lookup field are populated, the Quick Send email will be sent to the Contact only.

ClickDimensions will automatically connect the Opportunity record to the Email Send using CRM’s Connections.  This allows you to use FreeMarker to pull values from fields on the Opportunity record with this format: ${Recipient.opportunity.fieldname[0]!””}

Limitation: if there is a lookup field on the Opportunity, you can get the value of the lookup field, but not into the entity itself and get any values from there.
