How do I configure to Gmail?

Now that you’ve written a Post in backstitch Studio, it’s time to share it with your audience.

There are several channels in which you can use Studio to share your content. Sending your message via Gmail is a great option for many organizations who use this email provider and are looking for an easy way to send bulk emails.

Rather than using your native email platform directly, configuring Gmail with backstitch Studio comes with some added perks. The backstitch technology allows your organization to view analytics — such as who viewed your message and how it was viewed.
