Send Email Package

Send emails automatically during your Processes' Requests.


The Send Email package is not available in the ProcessMaker open-source edition. Contact ProcessMaker Sales or ask your ProcessMaker sales representative how the Send Email package can be installed in your ProcessMaker instance.

Use the Send Email package to automatically send emails during your Process Requests. The Send Email package has the following components after it is installed to your ProcessMaker instance:

  • Process model connector: The Send Email connector integrates into Process Modeler. Use the Send Email connector in your Process models as you would BPMN elements: drag and place the Send Email connector into your Process model, configure its settings, and then add its incoming and outgoing Sequence Flow elements.

  • New ProcessMaker Screen type: The Send Email package adds a new ProcessMaker Screen type called Email. Use an email-type ProcessMaker Screen to compose the email body for email messages to sent with the Send Email package. In doing so, use Variable Name setting values from ProcessMaker Screens referenced in a Process model to customize the sent email. The content of referenced Email-type ProcessMaker Screens become the email body content. When creating a new ProcessMaker Screen, select the Email type.

  • Send email notifications from Task and Manual Task elements: Send email notifications when a Task or Manual Task element triggers, completes, or under a specified condition. Include either plain text or the contents of an Email-type ProcessMaker Screen as the email body content.
