Mail merge

While there is no mail merge function native to Gmail, it is possible to perform a mail merge using third party scripts and Google Drive’s spreadsheets. Lehigh has purchased a campus-wide license for a third party tool, Digital Inspirations Mail Merge for Gmail. An important caveat is that this third party script is not Lehigh-sponsored or controlled -- we have found that although the tool is stable and in use around campus, vendor support is limited. You can access the campus license for Digital Inspirations Mail Merge at software.lehigh.edu

  • To use this tool you must allow the script access to portions of your Gmail account. 
  • For business-critical processes there are better enterprise tools in most cases. Contact the LTS Help Desk for assistnace. 
  • ALWAYS test your mail merge before you send mail out to a large email list.

LTS offers this tool on a pilot basis and we provide "best effort" support. A number of departments are using it successfully, but  isolated problems have occurred. The vendor support is minimal.

For additional help, please contact the LTS Help Desk at 610-758-4357 or helpdesk@lehigh.edu
