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


Image Placeholder

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.

Please note: We do not recommend using email to interaction on bulk email communications. Every email address in the TO: field will also create an individual pending task, which you will have to manually accept.

Also, double check that the email addresses in the TO: field are clean (e.g. “Name of Contact” <email1.com>, OR just email address only). Check for duplicate email addresses.

Email to Interaction Settings are in your user account. If the auto accept feature is turned on, duplicate client records may be set up if a client match is not made. 

Add interactions by sending emails to clients


1. Compose an email with your client’s email address in the To field.
2. Add your SourceLink  Personal Email address in the Cc or Bcc field.
3. Craft and send your e-mail to your client.

4. Once an email is sent, a Pending Task will appear on the left navigation bar in SourceLink.

Add referrals by sending emails to resource partners


1. Compose an email with your client’s email address in the To field.

5. Update any interaction details and update the Counselor selected (note: it will default to your user account).

Note: If an e-mail comes in to SourceLink and does not match a client, users can create the client and click on the new 'Rescan Email Matches' option on the Pending Tasks page to match the contact.
