There are lots of options when you communicate through HoneyBook, and one of the best is the ability to set up an email integration right in the platform.

Once that's in place, HoneyBook can automatically pull any communications with your client — as long as they originate from emails associated with the Project — into one feed. That way, all emails in that thread will be available in the Project, providing you with an accessible, centralized timeline of all Project communications!

Once you’ve synced your account, any file or activity message you send through HoneyBook will appear to your client as coming from your email account. You'll also be able to view the emails in your Sent Mail folder.

HoneyBook supports all major email providers such as Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, iCloud, Microsoft Outlook, Hotmail, Live, and more. If you find that your email provider is not supported yet, just reach out to us at [email protected] — we’ll let you know once we add your provider!
