This will display the Send Email dialog:

  • From: This is defined by the server itself. All email originating from MediaBeacon will be listed as from this address, not from the individual user's email.
  • To: The user may choose from a list of email addresses of users who share group membership with the emailing user. Other addresses may be entered manually, separated by commas.
  • Subject: The email subject line may be entered here.
  • Body: This area is prepopulated with asst links, but the user may enter additional text and apply formatting if required.
  • Asset Links: These links allow the asset to be opened by the recipient, if:
    • The user can log into MediaBeacon, and
    • If the user has access to those assets.
  • Pre-populate text: This checkbox will clear the body section and fill in the asset links when set to checked.
  • Attach the asset(s): This option will include copies of the assets as email attachments. This is limited to a maximum of 10Mb per email, but this may be lower depending upon your MediBeacon instance's settings.
