Freelance production manager Alex organizes video projects, ranging from short films to commercials. To keep any particular project running, she periodically sends emails to the designers, suppliers and crew attached to it, informing each one of schedules and requirements, and asking them for progress reports.
It always stresses her out, wondering if her emails have been read. She loses precious time sending follow-up emails and SMS messages, asking for confirmation that the information she had sent out had been received.
With Mail Merge for Gmail, a Chrome extension developed by wizy.io, Alex can track the emails she sends out. It will even give her a detailed list of who opened them, who had clicked on any links she had put in there, and who had replied. Mail Merge also gives her the option to track individual emails that she sends from her Gmail inbox.
Now Alex can concentrate on her primary task of making sure her films and commercials get shot.
Peter is the office manager of Inside Click, a company specializing in food styling and photography. Every day, he needs to shoot an email to different members of their team of stylists and photographers, reminding each one of his projects for the next day.
He used to this manually, copying the information off a spreadsheet, and pasting this into his email. With Data Merge, Peter now shaves off a big chunk of time performing the tedious task.
Developed by wizy.io, Data Merge is an add-on that transforms Google Sheets into a document generation and mail merge tool.
Peter will only need to make a document template containing their project details, listing client, location, time, and other requirements. With a click, Data Merge will link Peter’s spreadsheet data to this template, and then send it off as an email to the team.
