Enabling Count when sending allows you to get an accurate picture of your recipients. With our new and improved sidebar, enabling count is on automatically. Read more to understand how to make the most of the feature.
To do so, open a new email window and select the ContactMonkey icon. Configure your send as per usual, putting the contacts into your CSV or your "To" Field. From there, select "Count Recipients (On)".
Once you have clicked it, you will notice a recipient count for those in your "To" Field. In our example, we inserted a distribution list with 4 email addresses, bringing up "4 Recipients". Clicking in the hyperlinked amount will open a new window that breaks down the email addresses.

While you are able to change the recipient view by clicking on the icon within the square, keeping count on allows you to skip this step.
