Sending individual emails to my live database

I’m looking at the most recent Canvas documentation for sending emails, but there isn’t a hidden variable popup in the “email_workflows” reusable element.

Is there not an easier way from the admin dashboard to simply send emails to my live database of users? I don’t want to schedule anything, just send one off emails.

If you are using email templates (created in Admin Portal), you need to copy the “email_workflows” reusable element into the hidden variables popup belonging to the page where you trigger the email from. Then edit the workflow action (make changes …) to pull in the template you want to use. This allows you to use it in the workflow action “Send basic email” and include the mail merge terms as properties.

I am not aware of a simple “send email” method but Im sure you could make one if you wished.
