How to add an automated email system in Bubble.io?

To add an automated email system in Bubble.io, follow these steps:

Step 1: Ensure you have a custom domain for your Bubble.io application. If you haven't already connected your Bubble app to a domain, you'll need to set this up first.

Step 2: Create a SendGrid account. Visit the SendGrid website to sign up for a new account.

Step 3: Generate an API key from SendGrid. After logging into SendGrid, find the option to create a new API key. Follow SendGrid's documentation to create the key. Remember to keep this API key secure as it allows access to your SendGrid account.

Step 4: Connect your SendGrid account to your Bubble app. In your Bubble dashboard, go to Settings > Domain / Email and look for the section labeled 'Email settings.' Here, enter your SendGrid API key into the appropriate input box and click on 'Verify Sendgrid Key'.

Step 5: Validate your SendGrid key. Bubble will send a validation email to the account you used to sign up. Follow the instructions in that email to validate the connection.

Step 6: Once connected, you can optionally specify a SendGrid template ID if you want all your emails to follow a specific template you design in SendGrid.

Step 7: Implement the email workflow within your Bubble app. Use Bubble's workflow editor to create a new workflow that includes the 'Send Email' action, specifying when and how your emails should be sent based on the user's interactions with your app.

Remember, it's important to use a custom domain with your app when you set up email automation to ensure your emails are trustworthy and not flagged as spam. Also, consider optimizing email delivery with SendGrid features like domain white-labeling and IP white-labeling.
