Building and sending emails


Step 01: Choose Recipients

Step 02: Email Details

Step 03: Choose Template

Step 05: Confirm and Send

Step 01: Choose Recipients
  1. Choose a filter.
    • In a moment we will add rules, but first, use the radio buttons under the Users who match filter to select an option to govern how the rules will work.
      • All these rules - means that regardless of how many rules you add, recipients must satisfy all of them to receive the email.
      • Any of these rules - means that regardless of how many rules you add, recipients can satisfy any of them to receive the email.
  2. Add rules.
    • Select from the pre-set rules in the Add a rule drop-down to identify which recipient(s) the email should be sent to.
      • Mailing list - allows you to select from a drop-down. Appears by default, click the X to remove if needed.
      • Name, Company, Email, Location - allows you to type a partial or full value, and filter by is, is not, contains, or does not contain.
      • Contact tag - allows you to type a partial or full value, and filter by is, or is not.
    • Each rule supports a single value. You can add multiple different rules or multiples of the same rule.
  3. Click the green Next button.


We used the All these rules filter and added a Company and a Contact tag rule to send this email to contacts who both work at Dunder Mifflin Paper Co. and have a Supervisor tag.

Step 02: Email Details
πŸ“Ž Note:  If you added a Mailing list rule in the previous step, some of this information may be pre-filled, but you can overwrite it if needed.
  1. Fill in the fields:
    • Email name - for internal reference.
    • Email subject - the subject line that your contacts will see.
    • Sender from address* - the email address that any replies will be sent to.
      *Emails will show as partly from the email address you input in this field, but the domain will be @disco-mailer.net. Example:

      If you would like to send emails from your own domain, additional setup is required.
    • Sender display name - the name the email will show as coming from.
    • Business address - your physical business location (required per anti-spam laws).
  2. Click the green Next button.


Step 03: Choose Template
