Shared Threads: Discuss Emails With Your Team

Sometimes you need to get additional information from your teammates to answer an important email. Forwarding an email doesn’t work well, especially when you need to discuss it with multiple people. There is a better way to collaborate. In Spark for Teams, you can share an email with your colleagues to discuss it together privately in the comments.

Why use shared threads:

  • Ask your teammates for help with answering an email
  • Quickly get all the information and documents needed for a reply
  • Share and discuss valuable insights and feedback from your clients

Share an email

The people you share the email with have to use Spark and be the members of your team. Otherwise, they will receive an invitation to join your team and will need to download Spark if they don’t have it.


Learn how to create a team in Spark

  1. Open the email you want to share and click  at the top right.
  2. Choose the members of your team you want to share the email with. Start typing names or email addresses to find people faster.

  4. Tick Share new emails to automatically share all future emails in this thread.
  5. Click Invite people.

Note: If you have multiple teams, choose the one you need by clicking on the team’s name at the top.

Shared conversation enables you to discuss the email privately with selected team members. The email’s sender or other people from your team won’t see any comments.
