This FileMaker solution is an app to integrate it with the SendGrid API, which is a commercial and paid email service. SendGrid is a communication platform for transactional and marketing email, and is owned by Twilio.
SendGrid allows you to send group emails and track statistics about them such as how many were sent, how many were received, how many were opened and how many were clicked through, thereby letting you evaluate the effectiveness of an email campaign. This solution works for for everything from very large marketing emails to small non-profit newsletters. It even works fine for individual emails.
This solutions works with the FileMaker 18 platform, and is an open solution for you to edit and customize to your needs. It is a freeware solution, but we would appreciate credit in the code if you make use of it. And if you need assitance in customization, we are a full service FileMaker development company available for hire.
The API is called by FileMaker through the "Insert from URL" script step and cURL calls. It does require FileMaker 18 since it also makes use of the WHILE function.
