Integrate SendGrid with DevRev
Integrate your SendGrid account with the DevRev app and use it to reply from your organization’s support email address. Manage all customer communication from a single inbox.
Let’s set up the SendGrid integration for you
Follow these 2 steps to exercise complete access to your domain from the DevRev app.
Before you begin, generate an API key in your SendGrid account.
Making a new connection
On your DevRev app, open the settings and go to Integrations > Connections.
This page shows all your existing integrations. In the top-right corner, click + Connection.
Select SendGrid and enter a name for your connection. Enter the API key that you created in SendGrid. Enable Make connection available to your dev org and click Connect.
Configure SendGrid integration
Go to Settings > Snap-ins. Here you see all the existing snap-ins pertaining to different connections. In the top-right corner, click Explore Marketplace.
Scroll down the page to find the SendGrid snap-in and click Install.
In Organization’s support email address enter your organization’s email address. If the domain name isn't registered in the app, you can add that name in the Domain allow list to create the conversation in a new state; otherwise, it’s created in a suspended state.
You can also specify a signature (plain text or HTML) to append to outgoing emails from the support address.
