To send personalized attachments to each recipient, upload your files to Google Drive and add their URLs in a column of your spreadsheet. YAMM gets the files from your Drive and sends them as attachments to your email.
Method 1: Automatically list all file URLs in your Google spreadsheet
1.1. Associate an ID to each recipient in your spreadsheet
In our example, we are sending personalized payslips to each employee, who will be attributed a unique registration number.
List the ID related to each recipient in a new column of your spreadsheet.
1.2. Choose a naming convention for your file titles that includes the ID
Our naming convention for the payslip/file titles is PAYSLIP-JUN2020-ID-REGISTRATION_ID, where REGISTRATION_ID exactly matches the ID in our spreadsheet.
For example, Bob's ID is 0001, so his payslip is named PAYSLIP-JUN2020-ID-0001.
Make sure you include the same ID in the payslip title for each recipient, and upload the files in a Drive folder.
You are now ready to use YAMM to send your personalized attachments.
1.3. Select the folder containing your attachments from YAMM
In your Google spreadsheet, select Add-ons > Yet Another Mail Merge > Start Mail Merge.
Click + Alias, filters, personalized attachments, then click Import from Drive folder.
Select the Drive folder that contains your payslips.
Choose the column to check for matches and click Import files.
Once done, YAMM automatically lists your payslip URLs next to the right recipients. You'll also notice that we have detected the right column that contains the attachments.
You can now send your mail merge with the personalized attachments to your contact list. Click Back then click Send emails.
Method 2: List your file URLs one by one in your spreadsheet
2.1. Upload your files to Google Drive
2.2. Paste the URL of each file in a column named 'Attachment' in your spreadsheet
Right-click a file, select Share and copy the link.
3.3. Activate the option in YAMM to send personalized attachments
When starting a mail merge, click + Alias, filters, personalized attachments.
Select the checkbox Attach files in column xx to emails sent.
Each recipient receives the right attachment based on the URL you added to each row.
