How do I add the capability to allow my users to send email from within my QuickBase application?
Add a new table to your application and call it "Sent Email". If you follow the directions below then your users can send an email from within your QuickBase application just by adding a record to this new table.
Set the noun for the records in this new table to "Send Email".
Add the following fields to the new table:
Body (Multi-line Text)
Then set up an open email change notification so that when a record is added to this table or modified, an email is sent to:
You can rename the field "Record Owner" to "From".
All the emails sent this way will be logged in the table.
You should set up permissions on this table so that your users can add new records and view their "Own Records" as well as modify their "Own Records".
