You can view the following video Emailing Families, Members, and Committees as a guide through the process.
There have been a number of requests to clarify sending emails in Gabriel. You can send emails in Gabriel from the Family Records, Family Tags, Member Records, Committee Records, and Religious Ed.
Family Tags - If you go to Families > Family Tags. You can check off any Family Tag you wish to send an email to. It can be 1 tag, 5 tags or all of the tags. Sending an email within tags will use the email that is in the family record.
Note: Any email sent from Family Records, Family Tags, Member Records, and Committee Records will use the default parish email address found in the general information area of Church Administration as the from email address.
Religious Ed Records - You can also email from the Religious Ed Module. An email will be sent to the Family Email and any of the members within the family who have contact by email and receive family email alerts checked off in the member record. Religious Ed > Class Maintenance > You can choose to email all the classes or you can select specific classes by checking the box. If a religious ed email is specified on the Church Administration tab, it will use that as the from email address when a message is sent from Religious ed. If a religious email address is not specified on Church Administration it will use the default parish email address also found on Church Administration as the from email address.
For parishes with multiple DRE's or multiple people managing different grade levels, Gabriel will allow an email address to be added in Level Maintenance so that when an email is sent from within the Religious Ed module, the from address will be the email on the level. If no email address is specified on the level it will use the default Religious Ed From Email located on the Church Administration form.
