It would be awesome if YAMM could...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Follow-up to non-responders

    t'd be great if, after a few days, you could run a "follow-up" function that follows up on the same thread to people who haven't responded with a pre-defined template

    • Avoid spam filters

      A lot of mail merges are starting to get caught by spam filters. It would be great if YAMM automatically spaced emails out by 5 to 20 seconds (at random). It would take longer to get through the 100 emails, but at least more would end up in recipient's inboxes.

      While you're at it, you could have YAMM automatically pause when it hit the 100 limit until 24 hours had passed, and then automatically continue down the list.

      Thanks!

        Hi,

        Please ask your IT department to properly set up the SPF records for your domain, otherwise there’s a high chance to get caught by spam filters.

        eg on domain carbonlighthouse.com, there are some issues:
        https://toolbox.googleapps.com/apps/checkmx/check?domain=carbonlighthouse.com

        Please follow this documentation from Google to set up everything properly:
        https://support.google.com/a/answer/178723?hl=en

      • Attachments

        Would like the ability to add different attachments to recipients when sending merge. At the moment I have to upload a file to docs and then copy a shared link, is there a faster way.

          • throttles sending rate

            you need to add a feature that throttles sending rate, all the email limit shouldn't be sent at once, the user should have a level of control, a user should have the ability to tell YAMM, how many emails it should send per sec or minute or hour, like send 1 email every 5mins, it will take about 20 hours to reach daily sending limit but at least it will not trigger anti-spam on gmail

            • Move the data about date email opened into a separate column

              Currently you have to click each email opened message to see when it was open and the number of times opened. It would improve efficiency if that information was in another column.

              • Have the recipient's name appear in the "To" field of each email when sent.

                Currently the recipient receives an email addressed to their email address, but which does not contain their name. This seems impersonal, and also reveals that the email is part of a mass mailing.

                Adding the recipient's name to the "To" file would correct this.

                • Provide an option to schedule individual email, in a separate date/time column.

                  Currently, the only way to schedule email is by clicking on "Send Later". How about YAMM scheduling the email based on the date/time entered in a column in the spreadsheet? This will help in batch scheduling large mailing lists

                      when working a campaign of 500 or 1000 contact its would nice to break it up over time by scheduling multiple mail merges.

                      • Save merged emails as draft messages

                        I would really like a checkbox to allow the generated emails to be saved as draft messages rather than being sent immediately.

                        This would allow double checking and personalization of messages before sending.

                        • Hubspot CRM Integration

                          People who use Hubspot's free CRM tool are limited to the tools their dev teams can build and they are pretty slow to update.

                          Mail merge is such a basic power user feature and yet they don't offer it.

                          Can you integrate mail merge with the tracking features built in by Hubspot CRM?

                          Right now you can only send out 'draft' emails via mail merge but that doesn't get tracked by Hubspot CRM because it's technically not sent out.

                          I would love it if you can integrate a mail merge tool w/ all the bells and whistles that come with…

                                Similar to mail merge in Outlook, I would like to be able to preview each email that will be sent. Many times the first email in my merge is not indicative of what the rest will look like, and I would like to ensure that the formatting for all my emails will send correctly. I have had several occasions where dollar amounts, for example, were sent to customers with 10 digits after the decimal place. I was unable to foresee this problem when previewing the first email, simply because it happened to have a nice rounded dollar amount. I am…

                                    Currently if sender open email in sent it is marked as opened.
                                    I need this to proof that email was delivered and opened by recipient.
                                    And, by the way, return IP of recipient along with date and time.

                                        Oftentimes, I will send an email, but I will get a bounce back reply saying the address no longer exists, etc. It would be great to see the replies within the sheet, and delete the address there, instead of having to check gmail, copy the address, search the sheet, then delete the address.

                                        • When reusing an email list display the merge status for send #2 displayed in a new column.

                                          The option of adding a new column is especially good to keep track what contacts open/don't open your emails over time.
