Once you CC/BCC someone, they will automatically be added to the rest of the emails to that particular contact or lead in that Flow

You may be looking to include someone on your own team, such as your manager, an Account Executive/Account Manager, or perhaps even a group of prospects on Flow emails.

Once you CC/BCC someone on a Flow email, that cc'ed recipient will automatically be added to the rest of the emails that are being sent to your imported contact/lead in that particular Groove Flow. You can remove a cc'ed recipient from future emails in the Flow if you'd like to do so!

In the example above, Jack Rogers is the original contact imported to the Flow. Ralph from my own team is cc'ed on this email thread, as well as Sarah Johnson from Jack's company. In this case, both of them will be cc'ed on all emails to Jack Rogers in this Flow only.

To remove them from being cc'ed on this email and the rest of the emails in this Flow, simply click the 'x' to the right of their email address.

Bulk CC/BCC Recipients

Use a CSV to easily add CC and BCC recipients in bulk to your contacts/leads in a Flow.

In your CSV file, for each contact/lead (each row), specify the addresses that you want to cc using a or flow.bcc column. Add a column with the title "" (or "flow.bcc") — no quotes — in your CSV. If you want to cc/bcc multiple addresses, separate the addresses with a comma. If some recipients don't have any addresses to cc/bcc just leave that cell blank.

Importing In Flow

Select CSV Lookup to upload your CSV file and select the lookup column and Salesforce object to search against. You'll see the and flow.bcc columns listed in the table preview.

After adding the contacts/leads, you can view the cc'ed/bcc'ed recipients in your Flow workstep page or when you execute your Flow.

Error Handling

If we detect an error in your CSV file (missing comma, incomplete email address), the CSV fill fail to load with an error message indicating you to re-upload the CSV. Please check to ensure cc/bcc recipients email addresses are complete and accurate and separated by commas if there are multiple recipients.


  • Analytics - if the cc'd (or bcc'd) recipient opens the email, this open event will be not be attributed to the primary recipient of the email. The same goes for clicks and replies. Groove only tracks the primary recipient actions.

  • Throttling - email throttles limits will apply to all recipients on a mailing. So if you include 5 recipients on an email, Groove will count that 5 times against your throttle limit

  • Secondary Recipients (cc/bcc recipients) do not trigger the Automated Action, only actions from the primary recipient will trigger the AA.

  • Adding cc/bcc recipients will add those recipients to every step in the Flow. You can manually remove recipients per step.
