I am not sure if this is existing and I am too stupid to find it, is a bug in my install, or simply not a feature yet. Since I tried to find it on the Demo page here with no luck I am edging toward too stupid or doesn’t exist.
Anyway, in SalesForce you have the capability to email Leads/Contacts/Accounts directly from the respective page. For example, I can view a Lead, see they are a new lead from a web contact form and I can load up a template and send a “Thanks for reaching out” email. That correspondence is then listed in the Lead page as an email in the same way a note would be.
I thought this would be as simple as making a related field in leads but I couldn’t find an email module to do it with. Am I missing something?
