The Rock Gym Pro email system acts as an interface to manage the emails you send your customers. However, it requires a separate service called SendGrid to actually send the emails.
SendGrid offers a variety of service levels, including a free plan; however, you may want to use the Pro level plan so that your emails are sent from a dedicated IP address to reduce the risk of emails being sent to a spam folder. Multi-gym facilities can share a single SendGrid account if desired. We aren’t associated with SendGrid, so if you have any questions about your SendGrid account or about the deliverability of an email please direct them to the SendGrid Customer Support.
Setting Up your SendGrid Account

2. In your Sendgrid account complete steps to Verify your Sender Identity go to Settings -> Sender Authentication -> Verify an Address (Get Started)

In Rock Gym Pro, go to Data Entry → Manage → Email System → Settings → SendGrid API Key Integration. Enter the SendGrid API Key that you just created, and complete the other email settings in that window.
5. Be sure that the From Email Address in Data Entry → Manage → Email System → Setting smatches your verified sender email you created in Sendgrid.
6. In RGP Calendar > Manage Schedule > Settings >Contact Email Address also needs to matches a verified sender email in Sendgrid. This can be a second Sendgrid verified email if desired - i.e. email@example.com vs. firstname.lastname@example.org, however, you will need to add the second email using the same instructions in Step 2 above.
