How to send an Email - Android

If you're an Android user and haven't downloaded the Base mobile app, head over to the Google Play store to install the app on your mobile device to get started with managing your Leads, Contacts and Deals on the go!

While viewing a card within the Base mobile app, you can send an email directly from the card. Sending an email within Base allows you to see how many times the recipient has viewed an email or clicked on a link embedded in your email.

How to send an Email from a Lead, Contact, or Deal

Navigate to the Lead, Contact, or Deal card to send an Email. On the INFO section, click on the email address of the recipient. 

This is where you'll write the email. For additional options, use the icons at the top right and bottom of the email screen. To insert an email template or save this email as a template, select . To add an Attachment, click on . To insert merge tags within the email, such as First Name, Last Name, Company Name, etc, click on the brackets icon  and select what you'd like to use. For rich text formatting options such as bold, italics, underline, and bullet points, select the corresponding icons at the bottom of the screen. When you're done writing the email, click on   to send.

Creating an Email Template 

If you want to create an Email Template, click on  and select Save as Template to save the current email as a template for future use. Don't forget to give it a unique name to find it easily later.

If you'd like, you can insert merge tags into the email by clicking on . Merge tags will fill in information from that particular Lead or Contact into the email, such as "First Name". Templates with merge tags are very helpful for emails that you send on a regular basis, or for mass emailing several people at once.
