  • How to Create Gmail Merge By Sujit Ghosh
  • Why Email Merge • Bulk emails can be sent by personalizing each email recipient, as opposed to a CC or BCC. • A standard letter can be saved and reused. • Depending on the allowable limits of the email provider- bulk emails can be sent with same content in one click.
  • Steps • Log into your Gmail account. • Create a Google spreadsheet in Google Drive w/ headers: First Name • First Name • Last Name • Email Address Last Name Email address
  • Activate Mail-merge on the Spreadsheet • Go to Tools  Script Gallery • Type “yet another” to find a mail merge script • Click Install – Then authorize to grant access to Gmail contacts • Close the window • A menu will appear on the spreadsheet: Mail Merge
  • Step 2- Creating Email  Create an email • Subject • Body of the email • Signature  Wherever you want to add any information from the header field, use $%Header% – Example: Dear $%First Name%. If the first name of the person is Richard in the spreadsheet the email will appear as Dear Richard.  Save the email as draft
  • Step 3 • Go back to the spreadsheet • Click on Mail Merge tab and select Standard Merge • A box will appear – Select the template just created – Put your own name in My Name field – Click Send Mails button. • New Column: Merge Status – After the emails were sent out, notice a new Column. Against each email address it will assign “Done” if the email address was correct.
