ShalomCloud now offers the ability to add email attachments to your communications.
Before we delve into the “how-to,” let’s look at some of the things you might consider before sending out email attachments.
- In most email systems, the recipient must download the attachment to see any part of the email.
- Many users read emails on their cell phones; if, at the time, they are not in a wireless network, that data would count against their cell plan data allotment.
- Sending large attachments to several hundred recipients is a generally frowned upon practice. Better would be providing a link to the document. That way, the email itself reaches its recipients more quickly, and they can decide whether or not to access the document.
With that being said, adding an attachment is rather easy in ShalomCloud. There is a new button at the bottom of the member query, as pictured below:
There are a couple of limitations, though: first, you can add only one attachment at a time; second, the attachment must be smaller than two megabytes.
Here is a video showing how to query members, and send them emails with an attachment.
