You can add a recipient to a sequence directly in Gmail from the compose window! You can write a new email or reply to an email you received and insert a sequence in your email.
Access your Sequences from the Sequences menu at the top of a new message window.
When you select a sequence, it will be added to the top of the compose window. Once you add a recipient to your sequence, they’ll show up in your Sequences section of the web app, where you can personalize upcoming stages or remove recipients as needed.
When inserting a sequence with custom variables, you will have the option to define your variables before inserting the sequence.
For more details about when your sequence will send, click the pencil icon as shown below:
On the Growth and Enterprise plans, you can also customize sequences right from the compose window. After clicking the pencil icon, click Edit in the box that appears. You’ll see a preview of all your stages, which you can edit as you like.
