The communications tool is at work behind the scenes throughout Planning Pod, sending notifications and messages based on the default templates and email addresses set up in the Account Settings area. The main area where users will interact with this tool outside of the Communications dashboard is in Leads and Events.
Within a Lead or Event users can:
- Compose/reply to email messages.
- Create email drafts to send at a later time.
- Attach PDFs from Planning Pod or files from their computer.
- Use pre-built email templates.
- Choose the email address to send from.
- Search, star, and archive messages.
