Getting Started: Email Configuration Google

Modified on Thu, 21 Dec 2023 at 10:23 AM

Getting Started Email Configuration: Emails can be sent from Pet Sitter Plus in a few ways. 
  1. Through our internal email system (default).
  2. Through a combination of our internal email system and your business or personal email account (strongly recommended).
  3. Through your business or personal email account only.


Note: 
  • 1. This step is not essential to use Pet Sitter Plus, but it can provide enhanced functions.
  • 2. Google configuration is very easy and only take a couple of minutes.


1. Set your Email Options

  • Use Staff's Email Address: Turn ON to allow clients to reply to the specific staff member who sent the email (instead of to the company reply-to email address). 
  • BCC All Direct Emails To Company: Turn ON (Optional) to receive a copy of all emails sent via your Google email.

2. Connect Your Email

  • Send Email From Your Own Account: Turn ON to configure SMTP to connect your company/personal email account.
  • Email Configuration Type: Click "Google" - For non Google Email Accounts, connect using "SMTP."
  • Only Use For Direct Emails: (Recommended) Switch ON to enable Pet Sitter Plus to automatically route emails through the most appropriate channel depending on the nature of the email.
  • Click "Update."
