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
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.
