Adding an unsubscribe link to the Google Workspace Solution Gallery 'Mail merge using Gmail and Google Sheets'

Recently I came across a nice post from Ravgeet Dhillon, which looked at how to Add Unsubscribe link in emails using Google Apps Script. The solution uses a Google Sheet and a Google Apps Script web app to add an unsubscribe link to emails. As I noted when shared via AppsScriptPulse this is a useful addition if your mailing needs comply with PECR or similar electronic communications regulation compliance.

Having recently updated my ‘Create a mail merge using Gmail and Google Sheets’ in the Google Workspace Solution Gallery to handle inline images I thought it would be useful to show how this example can be extended to include a variation on Ravgeet’s post.

Image order

A common workflow solution in Google Apps Script is to use a Gmail draft message as a template for sending emails. For the user the benefit is they can draft a message in a familiar environment adding formatting without having to worry about writing HTML. A problem often encountered is the inclusion of inline images. This post looks at solving the issue of missing inline images.

Recording an AutoFill with the Macro Recorder

Google Sheets users can already use the magic of AutoFill to expand data automatically detecting a series of numbers, letters or dates. This feature is particularly powerful even when your series includes text or repeating dates. In this post I’ll highlight how you can also use AutoFill in your Google Apps Script projects

Google Sheets charts in your inbox

Back in 2015 I shared a post on Tips on emailing inline Google Charts from Sheets using Apps Script, which looked at how you can email charts from Google Sheets. This solution is one I use in my work on a daily basis and remains largely unchanged. More recently I was faced with the problem that I couldn’t include a Combo Chart. In this post I revisit this problem and share a solution for including copies of your Google Sheet charts in your email reports.
