The steps below explain how you can send an email or letter in bulk to a group of all your managed Landlords or Tenants. 

You have the option to either:

  • Create a letter template in the Word Processor to merge and send the letter by email
  • Create a letter template in the Word Processor to merge and print it for posting
  • Send an ad hoc email - All recipients set to email are sent an individual email which cannot be seen by others 
  • Print a list of labels for all those who don't have a registered email or whose consent preference is set to post and not email


If you select Tenancies at step 4 - Status, the Email Preference Link will NOT be included in the email sent to recipients as a Tenancy is not a separate contact record, so you need to select Tenants instead
