In this article, we will explain how to add a Bcc recipient to send a hidden copy of emails sent through an Automation workflow. Adding a Bcc recipient to your emails can be useful to keep your sales team up-to-date or know when a contact has subscribed to a list in real-time.
Brevo Automation allows you to add a Bcc recipient to emails sent through a workflow. This option is available at the Send an Email step of a workflow:
Add a Bcc recipient
There are two ways you can add a Bcc recipient to your emails:
Send a blind copy to specific recipient(s): simply enter the email address(es) of the recipient(s) separated by a comma.
Send a blind copy to recipient(s) defined in a contact attribute: select the contact attribute which contains the address(es) to be used for the contact, e.g. "SALES_REP".
Verify that the Bcc is working
To make sure the emails are sent to the Bcc recipient, check the "bcc" variable in the workflow logs:
- Go to Automation > Logs.
- In the Workflow logs tab, filter your workflow and the Send an Email step.
- Click the desired step and look for the email adress of the Bcc recipient in the "bcc" variable.
