Build internal tools with SendGrid

Retool makes it easy to build admin panels, dashboards, and utilities on top of your SendGrid data.

Retool is a great way to build internal apps on top of the SendGrid API – you can pull in contacts with a POST request to /marketing/contacts/search, or send an email with /mail/send. Retool ingests SendGrid’s OpenAPI v3 spec, so you can choose any supported method and see descriptions, all in a nice pre-formatted UI. A popular use case is pulling in users from a data store like Postgres, MongoDB, or Firebase, selecting a group of users, and sending an email via a POST to /mail/send to each one.

Check out our docs for more info on how to get your SendGrid API key, set permissions, and send basic requests.

I tell every technology leader I talk to that they should look at Retool as a way to reduce the burden of building admin UIs and democratize that kind of stuff across their company.
