Connecting the Gmail Topping

Connecting your account to the Gmail Toppings is as simple as signing in with your Gmail or Google Workspace account. To do so, just open Crmble and unfold the Toppings section and head to the Gmail Topping. Once there just sign-in with your Google account and make sure to check all the permissions when prompted for the Gmail Topping to work as expected.

Gmail threads

Introducing Crmble’s enhanced functionality: Gmail Threads. With Crmble, you can now effortlessly search your Email inbox and gather all the conversations related to each deal. As long as the primary contact information for a deal includes an email address, Crmble will diligently explore your inbox to find and compile these conversations. Conveniently access them in the all-new Email tab, located within your deal cards.

The Email tab provides a comprehensive view of all relevant email conversations, allowing you to seamlessly continue your discussions using pre-defined templates. Whether you need to reply, reply-all, or forward messages, or compose new messages from scratch, Crmble’s visual message editor makes the process a breeze. You’ll have the flexibility to insert variables, capture template texts, and access everything you need, precisely where you need it, with all deal details readily available at your fingertips. 

Gmail tracking

Gmail tracking will write a comment to your card activity showing a snippet of sent and received messages. The comment also includes links to the original message in your Gmail platform. You can use these comments for Trello automation purposes.

Connect other type of email accounts to Crmble via Gmail

The Crmble Gmail Topping is limited to just one Gmail account per board, but using the “Send mail as” option available within Gmail, you can add up to 99 additional accounts to send mail from all sorts of non-Gmail accounts such as Microsoft Outlook, custom domain accounts or Yahoo, just to name a few.

  6. Copy the code and paste it into Gmail’s confirmation field.
Ready! Now when you use the Gmail button in any Crmble lead card, a new selection field will be available in the mail composer that will let you select any other email address connected with Gmail.

Gmail signatures

Gmail includes a nice signature creator that lets you predefine what signature to use by default with any email account connected to Gmail. Additional “Send mail as” accounts are supported too. With this new update, Crmble will capture the default signature you have configured in Gmail. A small signature preview is also available in Crmble’s email composer.

Visit Googles help page to learn all about how to create signatures or set default signatures for “Send mail as” accounts connected to Gmail.

Email Templates

Life is too short to spend it constantly typing the same text over and over again. 

If you find yourself sending the same kind of emails to your contacts, you can use Crmble Email Templates. A template is a pre-built email that you can select and also edit before you send it.

You already have some email templates available, but new ones are easy peasy to set up.

Use the switch toggle to activate the ones you’d like to use.

Create your own templates

Customizing your messages is a breeze with Crmble. You have the flexibility to style them exactly the way you envision them. Add captivating lists, captivating images and useful links, or even include humorous gifs to add a touch of fun. The possibilities are endless! Let your creativity shine and tailor your messages to perfection.

To access your templates head to the Gmail Topping located under Toppings. Within this section, you’ll find an overview of your current templates. Feel free to modify existing templates or create new ones according to your preferences. 

Using variables in templates and mails

You can insert data of your deal details or contacts into your messages editor or personalize your templates by inserting shortcodes.  Just type a hash symbol “#” and a list of all the available Crmble Fields will pop up. Every time you use the template, all the shortcodes will be replaced by the Crmble Fields content of the lead you are sending the message from.

Sending email templates
