Exporting to SendGrid
SendGrid released a new version of its Marketing Campaigns in 2019. We are working on an update that would allow users to push BEE designs to SendGrid / Marketing (new version).
For now, you can send templates from BEE only to the old version of Marketing Campaigns (called 'Legacy'). You can also export designs as Transactional templates.
If you have already updated to the new version, unfortunately, you can't use this feature right now.
If you need more info, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Level Up your Emails in SendGrid
Would you like to connect your SendGrid account to your BEE account? It's easy, but - first of all - you need to check your BEE subscription: it must be Team or Agency.
You can choose to connect your BEE and your SendGrid in one of the following ways:
- Before you start designing (from Brand Settings)
- The first time you need to send a specific template to SendGrid (from Export)
1. Connect from Brand Settings
Go to Settings > Connectors.
Click the Connect button for SendGrid.
The pop-up asks you to insert:
- Your API Key (mandatory)
The SendGrid API can have Full Access OR Restricted Access. To connect your SendGrid and BEE Pro account you need to one of the following:
- Full Access to the API Key
- Full Access to Marketing Campaign (only applicable if you're still using the Legacy Marketing Campaigns product)
- Full Access to Template Engine
- Your Account Name (not mandatory)
Do you know how to create an API Key in SendGrid?

2. From Export
When your message is ready, click on the Export button on the Message Details page.
And then click on Push to your sending system.
A new window will display the connectors list. Select SendGrid and follow the steps to log-in and connect it.
BEE Pro will confirm that the message is successfully exported. You will see it appear in your SendGrid account.
SendGrid allows you to create 2 different types of messages: Marketing or Transactional. You can easily send templates from BEE to both of them! Use the toggle to select the type.
Multiple Brands / Customers
Do you have different brands and need to easily manage all your email messages and templates?
No problem! The Agency Version of BEE Pro allows you to set up different brands so you can better organize your email creation workflow. Agency allows you to specify different connectors for each brand so you never need to switch accounts.
For example, say you are a digital marketing agency with 10 clients that use SendGrid. With Agency, you will be able to create 10 brands in BEE Pro and connect each of them to their specific SendGrid account.
