0 out of 0 found this helpful

Mass Mail items, or set emails that are sent to multiple recipients with little or no modification to the body of the email, are used throughout the staffing industry to handle large volume requests or notifications. This feature also allows user to create a specific Mass Mail email profile and to create email templates.

 

In order to use Mass Mail, Employer/supplier and User config options must be configured in Admin Tools and an email profile must be set up. This article focuses on how to configure these settings and set up an email profile.

Start Page: Set Up/Verify Email Profile

In order for Mass Mail to function correctly, all Mass Mails must be sent through an existing email profile. There are two email profile setup methods that may be used - Default Profile and New Profile. 

 

 

 

 

Default Email Profile Setup

Mass Mails can be set through a Default Email profile. This email profile can be used throughout Avionté. This method allows for only one email profile to be set up. To add additional email profiles, see the Add a New Email Profile section below. 

For information on setting up a default email profile, see either Email Profile (Versions 14.2 & Older; Self-Hosted) or Email - Profile (Versions 15.1 & Newer; Hosted) help articles.

 

 

 

Add a New Email Profile

An additional new email profile can be set up in the Mass Mail section specifically for mass mailings. This is generally recommended if a "no reply" email address is going to be used.

 

The Profile section, accessible from the Email section, allows for additional email profiles to be set up. These profiles can be used to send out Mass Mails or other emails where using a personal email address would be undesirable. 

NoteUsers will only have access to profiles they have created, or which have been shared with their account. 

  1. From the Main Menu, navigate to Front Office > Email > Profile



  2. Click New Profile in the upper left corner. The Email Profile wizard loads.



  3. On the Email Profile tab, enter the following information:

    Field Description Version Requirements
    Profile Name Enter a name for this email profile. All versions; both Hosted and Self-Hosted.
    Email Address Enter the email address for this profile. All versions; both Hosted and Self-Hosted.
    User Name Enter the user name you'd like for this profile. Versions 14.2 & Older; Self-Hosted.
    Password Enter the password you would like to have for accessing this profile.
    NoteThis should be the mail domain password that you already use.
    Versions 14.2 & Older; Self-Hosted.
    Retype Password Confirm the password you created in the field above. Versions 14.2 & Older; Self-Hosted.
    Reply To Email Address Set up an email address where replies will go. All versions; both Hosted and Self-Hosted.

    Outgoing Mail Server Port Obtain this information from your administrator. Versions 14.2 & Older; Self-Hosted.
    Enable SSL Discuss with your administrator whether or not to enable SSL. Versions 14.2 & Older; Self-Hosted.


  4. The HTML tab at the bottom of the window can be used to add additional items such as images, or social networking links.

    For more information, see the Email Signature section of the Email - Profile (Versions 15.1 & Newer; Hosted) article. This information applies to all Avionté users, regardless of version. If no email signature is needed, move to the next step.

  5. On the Share Profile tab, select users to share this email profile with. Across the top are three buttons that provide options for selecting users. Those options are:

    Option Description
    Select All Users From My Branch Share this profile with all users at your branch.
