• You can now stop the merge in the middle of processing by typing the word “stop” into the “Merge Status” column for any row that hasn’t yet been processed. When the script reaches that row it will see the word “stop” and stop the merge. This is helpful if you notice a mistake and want to stop the merge so you can correct it before all the emails go out.
  • The email merge script now gives you the ability to specify a different “Reply To” address or if you have the rights to send email as another account you can specify that as the “From” account.





NOTE-Google changed the Drive interface such that “From template…” is no longer an option when you click on the “Create” button (as described in the video). To get to the Template Gallery, use the link below.
