LinkPoint Bcc Sender helps users send emails in a 1-to-1 format while using established distribution lists within Microsoft Outlook. When sending an outbound email, include the distribution list or series of email addresses in the Bcc field. Compose and send the email as needed. LinkPoint Bcc Sender will confirm that you wish to send a separate version of the email to each recipient prior to sending.Â This feature can be used along with LinkPoint Tracker.

Smart Link for Meetings/Appointments
LinkPoint Connect’s Smart Link feature takes our Link to Salesforce functionality for meetings and appointments a step further. Users can create a meeting or appointment, and then click the Smart Link button to have LinkPoint Connect search Salesforce for Leads and Contacts in the CRM that match the invitees listed on the meeting or appointment. When the meeting is sent, a record of the appointment will be recorded to the corresponding record in Salesforce. This feature will be available for our Microsoft Outlook and IBM Notes integrations.
Support for Salesforce Platform Encryption
With Salesforce Platform Encryption becoming one of the most important features for Salesforce enterprise customers, LinkPoint360 is proud to be among the first AppExchange partners to support this release with email integration from LinkPoint Connect. Users have the ability to record emails, synchronize data, and view Salesforce content based on their level of Salesforce access.
