Client interactions can be automatically added to SouceLink® client records through email. The most popular ways to use the email to interaction feature include:

1. Automatically add interactions by sending emails to clients
2. Automatically add referrals by sending emails to resource partners
3. Automatically add interactions from SourceLink non-users (i.e. counselors without SourceLink user accounts)

Getting started – Setting up your email client


1. Copy your personal e-mail address by clicking your name at the top right corner of the SourceLink dashboard, then clicking the icon next to Personal Email. (e.g. a+yourname12345@my.joinsourcelink.com)
2. Create a new contact in your e-mail client with this email address and give the new contact a name like Personal SourceLink Email
3. Copy your organizational email address by clicking your name in the top right corner of the SourceLink dashboard, then clicking the icon next to Organizational Email. (e.g. a+orgname12345@my.joinsourcelink.com)
4. Create a new contact in your e-mail client with this SourceLink email address and give the new contact a name like Organizational SourceLink Email.
