How to send someone a sequence from Gmail

This article describes how to add a recipient to a Sequence directly from the Gmail compose window.

Updated over a week ago

Sequences are available on the Mixmax Small Business plan and above. Check out our pricing page for more information.

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.

Sequences tab in the compose 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.

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.

The Edit button will only appear if you have a recipient in the TO: field.

Currently, we don't support adding sequences that start with a Task in the Gmail compose window. This is because when you add a sequence to the compose window, the first stage is added to compose as the first email. If the sequences start with tasks, we are not able to do that, so sequences that begin with a Task stage are hidden from the user's view in Gmail Compose.
