In general, how does the BCC function work?

This function allows you to automatically log an email interaction anytime you send an email to a relationship. That's right, you can send an email to a funder/donor/vendor/volunteer/etc... from your Gmail or Outlook and have that interaction get attached as an interaction to their record in your MonkeyPod automatically.

All you need to do to begin auto-logging email interactions is BCC Your organizations special MonkeyPod email as shown below!

When you do that, MonkeyPod will identify the relationship by their email address or create a new one as needed. Then, it will automatically log an "Email" action on their interactions log. 

!Tip: We recommend that you save the email in your MonkeyPod address book for ease of use so that you can record many of your interactions automatically!

Where do I find my organization's special BCC email address in my MonkeyPod?
