Is there a way for me to email all of my Looker users?

Currently there is not a direct way to do this in Looker.

In the meantime, a workaround would be to use System Activity to get the list of all the users and their email addresses.

If we go to base url + /explore/system_activity/user we can see there is a view on the left called USER.
We can select the email field and also apply a filter on the Is Disabled = No
That will give us a list of the email addresses for all the current Looker users.

Another approach would be to use the API and the get_all_users() call to retrieve all the users and their email address, then from the result, exclude the ones where is_disabled is true.

Finally when you have a list of the users to email, it may be easier to create a group of these email addresses via your email provider, and then use that group in the scheduler to send out to this group of users.
