One of the most popular features of Flatter Files is the ability to automatically notify both internal users and external suppliers when a drawing has been updated with a new revision. This tutorial will show you how to integrate with Office 365 such that emails will be sent using your users Office 365 mail account. Once setup, the emails will originate from the user’s actual Office 365 account. They will even be shown in the Sent Items folder for the particular user account that was used to send each email.
For example, the Office 365 mail account for the user that shares an item externally will be used to send all of the emails that pertain to that particular share. Both the original share creation emails as well as revision update emails will all be sent from that user’s account. The resulting emails will show up in the Sent Items for that particular user in Outlook.
This functionality significantly improves delivery of the emails and improves company branding. If you are an Office 365 customer it is highly recommended that you use Office 365 to send your emails.
