How to use Dynamic Attachments
In this tutorial, we will add invoices as dynamic attachments in a newsletter to our customers. Once this is set up, each customer will receive the invoice specific to them by sending the newsletter once.
1. To use Dynamic Attachments, open JungleMail from the ribbon and create a newsletter. For this feature to work, you will need to select a SharePoint List as your recipient source.
2. On the Recipients step, select dynamic attachments.
3. Click Browse and select the list you want your attachments to be taken from.
4. In this example, we have chosen to use the list that contains the invoice we will send to our customers.
5. Now you will need to set the conditions for Dynamic Attachments. In this example,
6. Make sure that your condition is specific enough and you won't end up sending more attachments then you intended to. In this example we have included the month February, making sure that only invoices from February will be sent.
7. You have the option to select the Do not send email if
8. You can limit the number of attachments included with each individual email in your campaign. You could for example state that you want no more than 2 attachments send to each recipient. If you enter 0, it will send all the attachments available for a recipient according to the conditions set by you.
9. Once you have set all the conditions, simply select Insert. Now continue with creating your newsletter the way you would normally do. If you want to review Dynamic Attachments configuration, go to the Review tab and see what attachments are included for which recipients.
