One of the most common Actions used in SharePoint Designer custom workflows is “Send an Email.” This Action allows you to specify recipients, subject lines, and the email body with combinations of text and dynamic content.
The email design dialog box in SharePoint Designer (SPD) 2010 is a great improvement over the one in SPD 2007. Among other things, the text in the email body can now be formatted with font choices. Hyperlinks are easier to construct, and building dynamic subject lines that combine text and data is easier as well.
One desired feature that seems to have been left out, however, is the ability to send a blind carbon copy (BCC) to a recipient. There seems to be no BCC option in the email creation dialog box. If you have that need and didn’t know better, you might add a second Send an Email action to send a separate notification to that recipient. Luckily, there IS an easier way – it’s just not obvious.
