Hot! TeamLab Introduces Personal Tags for Email Messages

  • Sharebar

TeamLab, a fremium project and business management application that is available over the internet as a ‘software as a service’ teamlab tags(SaaS) application, is rapidly gaining popularity in this competitive market by offering the majority of its comprehensive functionality free of charge to its customers.

To help keep the pace in its increasing take up  amongst the project management community like others of its kind, TeamLab is continually introducing new and improved features to benefit its user base.  One such recent addition is the introduction of personal tags. When writing emails out to more than one recipient, previously the options to personalize the message were limited to either addressing the email generically, for example, Dear Colleague or Dear All, or, indeed, creating a separate message for each recipient to allow specific names to be added, which of course would not be viable for even a small distribution list of recipients.

Recognizing this limitation, TeamLab has introduced personal tags to allow users to insert variable information into an emailteamlab message, that is populated with the actual information when the email is sent. To insert a personal tag, simply position the insertion point in the email message where you want the variable information, for example, recipient’s first name, to be displayed, then choose the field you want to use from the displayed drop-down list.  The email, then, will look something like:

Dear $(Person. First Name)

When the email is sent, the relevant information from the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database within TeamLab will be inserted into each copy of the email. In our case, the first name of each person on the distribution list will be inserted.
