Send and Reply to Emails in TeamSnap

TeamSnap allows members to send emails to one or more members from the Messages tab on both the web and mobile applications. When you use the Messages tab on the web application to compose email messages, there is a formatting toolbar built in to the message editor. 

Use the formatting options in the toolbar to add formatting such as colored fonts, hyperlinks, bold, bulleted lists, etc.

Email Formatting Tips

  • Use the built in editor on the Messages tab to format your message.
  • For best results, do not copy and paste from an outside source as this may result in formatting that looks off.
    • If you must copy and paste from another source try to paste without formatting.
      • To paste without including formatting, use these paste shortcuts: 
        • Mac command-shift-v
        • Windows: ctrl-shift-v 
  • Formatting such as fonts, colors, etc. can only be set up and viewed from the web app, not from the mobile app. 
  • A hard return (Enter) will result in double spacing. 
  • For single spacing, use the Shift + Enter.
  • To insert a link in your message, highlight the desired link text and click the chainlink icon in the formatting toolbar. You can then enter or paste the URL you'd like to link to.
