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.

Email Formatting Tips

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.

  • 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 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.

Note: Messages composed on the web will be occasionally auto-saved. The auto-save feature saves your email content to the local memory of your current browser. It does not create a draft of your email. If you leave the browser and return, you will see your auto-saved content when you compose a message, only if you are using the same browser that it was auto-saved in. If you begin composing a new message, it will overwrite the auto-saved content and that content will be lost. To ensure that your message is saved if you need to return to it later, make sure to use the Save as Draft button.

Reply to a TeamSnap Email

Email replies cannot currently be sent using the TeamSnap Messages tab. To reply to emails sent through TeamSnap you need to go to your email program (gmail, yahoo, etc.) and use the reply button in your email program. All emails sent within TeamSnap come from a special donotreply@email.teamsnap.com address however when you click the reply button in your email program, the replies go back to the sender.  

  1. When you click reply the TO: field will display our 'donotreply' email address
  2. The recipient's email address is embedded in this email.  Your reply will go directly to their inbox, circumventing the TeamSnap Message / email tab
