I got an e-mail from my son's new basketball coach a couple weeks ago. The message was personalized with my son's name sprinkled throughout the message. "Aha", I thought, "this coach is using Google Power to impress the parents with an e-mail message just for their child."
Today on Twitter, I found an outstanding tutorial from the Google Developer's site on how to create a mail merge e-mail using the data from Google Spreadsheets. If you have an extra 15 minutes, click through this tutorial and you will be able to amaze parents and friends by creating personalized e-mails from your Google Spreadsheets too.
