Email Blast Type: All buyers/investors that will be included in an Email Blast should be segmented into a Type. Due to a Podio limitation, each Type is limited to 500 contacts. Therefore, we recommend that you use the following format: 'Buyer Type/Area' to specify the contact (i.e., Developer/Boston). Buyers/Investors may be included in more than one Type. Refer to email blasts to learn more about Email Blast Types.


IMPORTANT: Any changes to the Email Blast Type field in the Buyer/Investor template should be made in the Email Blast app.

The Activity Panel on the right side of the Buyer/Investor record allows you to view all activity with the Buyer/Investor. Toggle between an activity view and a comments view. 


Sending Emails from the Activity Panel: Use the command 'email:' with the body of your email following the command (see image above). Once complete , click the Add button to send. The subject of the email is based on the Email Subject Line (sent from comments) field in the settings app. Placeholders cannot be used here.
