Email Integration

Two-way email integration

5pm interacts with emails in both directions

You can send email notifications to the project and task team, or just specific people, when you create or edit projects, tasks, messages, etc.:

5pm email alerts

And the best part is that the recipients can simply reply to a 5pm email notification, as they reply to any other email, and their answer will be logged back into 5pm as a message!

You can also create from email Tasks, assign teams, attach files, add messages and report progress.
Here is an example of a task created from an email:
To create a Task from email, all you have to do is send it (To, CC or Fwd) to:
task.yourdomain@5pmweb.com
(yourdomain with your own domain from yourdomain.5pmweb.com)
It will automatically detect the attachments, add recipients to the Task Team and so on!
For example, you can:
  • Send an email to task.yourdomain@5pmweb.com to create a task directly from email. If you include email addresses of other 5pm users (in To, CC or BCC) — they will be added to the task team.
  • You can take an existing email, from your client, for example, and create a 5pm task from it by just forwarding it to task.yourdomain@5pmweb.com.

Even more — you can also add Messages and Progress Notes directly from email!
