You don't need to set up notification tasks any differently than you have been. Those who want notification emails to be sent from a personal email address just need to sign up for Gmail integration in Sisu.

If you're assigned to a notification task and you're signed up for Gmail integration, the notification email will be sent from your Gmail account and not from Sisu. Likewise, all replies will go to the Gmail account that the email was originally sent from, which means that Sisu notification emails can be managed outside of Sisu. Just remember that there won't be any record of the sent email in Sisu. The record will exist only in the Sent folder of your Gmail account.

Signing Up for Gmail Integration

When you sign up for Gmail integration, you can have notification emails sent from your own Gmail account.

  1. Go to Account > Profile.

  2. In the Google Gmail Account Integration section, click Click here.

  3. Enter an email address in the field provided and click Sign in to Google.

  4. You'll be prompted to select a Gmail account and sign in if you haven't already.

  5. In the window that says "sisu.co wants access to your Google Account," click Allow. This gives Sisu permission to send emails on your behalf.

Note: You're now signed up for Gmail integration! Any notification tasks that you're assigned to will be sent from the email you entered during signup. To learn where in Sisu individuals are assigned to notification tasks, see the section below called How do I specify the sender of each notification email?

Opting Out of Gmail Integration

How do I specify the sender of each notification email?

The "Auto Assign To" field of each notification task (found in the admin settings) determines whose email account is used to send each notification email. This field appears when you're creating new tasks and editing existing ones.

Creating a New Notification Task

You can find the "Auto Assign To" field by doing the following:

  1. Go to Admin > Tasks.

  2. In the menu on the left, click Tasks.

  3. Change the Task Type field to Notification. This makes the Auto Assign To field appear below.

    Note: See the user in the Auto Assign To field. The email will be sent from this user's Gmail account as long as they've signed up for Gmail integration.

Editing Existing Notification Tasks

You can find the "Auto Assign To" field by doing the following:

  1. Go to Admin > Tasks.

  2. In the menu on the left, click Tasks.

  3. Scroll down to the list of tasks.

  4. In-line with a notification task, click Edit.

  5. You can find the Auto Assign To field near the top under the Task Type field.

    Note: See the user in the Auto Assign To field. The email will be sent from this user's Gmail account as long as they've signed up for Gmail integration.
