With Yet Another Mail Merge, you can easily add cc or bcc recipients to your mailing list. Follow this article to learn how to do so.
Two options are available and can be used simultaneously, depending on your needs:
- Add someone in cc in the draft so when the email is sent, they're in copy of all the emails.
- Add someone in cc in the spreadsheet so when the email is sent, they're in copy of a specific email (the one for the recipient on the same row).
Add cc or bcc in your spreadsheet
Add cc as the header of a column in your spreadsheet. The cc recipients will be retrieved from this column. For bcc recipients, do exactly the same by adding another column with bcc as the header.
If you want to put several addresses in copy, separate them with comma.
Add cc or bcc in your email draft
You can also add a recipient in cc directly in your draft. If you have several cc recipients, separate the email addresses with comma.
What to know before adding cc or bcc
Take all cc and bcc recipients into account when calculating the quota you need.
For example, with a quota of 50 emails per 24 hours:
- Your Google Sheets contains 15 main recipients
- For 3 of these recipients, you add 1 person in copy
- And you also add 2 email addresses in your Gmail draft
In total you will send 48 emails and will have only 2 left.
When you send an email to several recipients (or people in cc or bcc), it is recorded as 'EMAIL_OPENED' in your Google Sheets when any of those recipients open your email. Learn more
We can't see who, among your recipients, opened the email. As the same email is sent to all those recipients, we can't technically differentiate them.
