Mailto Links

Nudge makes it easy to craft messages in-app and then send them from your Gmail or Outlook account.

Once you’ve crafted a message and have clicked Preview in Email Client, or Ask for an Intro, your message should be moved to either your Gmail or Outlook account. If this doesn’t happen, you need to set up your mailto link.

With a mailto link, your draft in Nudge will seamlessly move to your email account.
