Send emails programmatically

Curious how people are implementing outbound emails from their apps. I see some topics that mention relying on a third party service the best/only way?

@edwardhamlin We have a Retool Email resource that can help you send email easily! If you want more customization, I think using a third-party service like SendGrid is the best way. If you have your own API to send email, you can use that as well, but that'll require more work on your end to set up the resource.

Many thanks - I just stumbled over that component an hour ago. Easy peasy…sounds like just what I need. Huge timesaver for sure.


@edwardhamlin That's awesome to hear!
