Upcoming changes to Drift email features
Starting in late March 2020, you’ll no longer be able to send Sales Sequences through Drift. You’ll still be able to send Triggered Emails and Drip Campaigns, but only through Drift Chatbots. Learn more about this change here.
In order to be able to send Drift sequences, you need to connect your email to Drift. There are a few reasons as to why:
- Our emails come from the rep who enrolls the leads into the sequence, so we send emails directly through gmail.
- Our emails do not have an unsubscribe link for that reason, they come from a real person. Learn how leads can still unsubscribe from your emails here.
- In order to test out if an email can be sent, we need your email to use as the sender in order to the test the message!
1. Head to your personal settings to download the chrome extension and connect your email.
You can change your Bcc and Gmail settings in your chrome extension once it’s been downloaded.
