How to set up Playbooks to work with your existing email

Playbooks works seamlessly with your existing email service provider so you can send emails critical to your cadence strategy, get email interaction notifications, use email templates, and other advanced email features. Plus, Playbooks will sync your email activities to the CRM record, and, depending on the settings enabled for your organization, Playbooks can be used from your email platform.  A few easy steps and some recommended configuration is all that is needed for a Playbooks user to take advantage of this integration.

Connecting Your Email

Playbooks will use your existing email service to send and receive email messages. The following steps will help you make the one-time connection.

To Connect Your Email

  1. Click the menu button (XANT logo).
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click Email.
  4. Click Connect or Update Connection.
  5. Select your email account.
  6. Click Allow.

Enabling Default to SmartSend

Enabling this feature changes the default send method of all email tasks to SmartSend. SmartSend calculates the most likely time your email will be opened and schedules it to send at that time. If you want to send your email before that time, you still have the option to manually schedule your email send or send it immediately.

To Enable Default to Smart Send

  1. Click the menu button (XANT logo).
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click Email.
  4. Toggle the Default to Smart Send switch ON.
