I am tying to say that I am Cc-ing my supervisor to keep her updated on an application process. I am sending this email internally but to different department.

Does following sentence convey meaning?

Cc'ed my supervisor to keep her in the loop.

  • Personally, I put: "cc: Mary Watson", where Mary Watson is the name of my supervisor, and avoid turning "cc" into a verb with past tense.

  • Personally I rely on the fact that my work e-mail app (Microsoft Outlook) shows if anyone has received a copy of an email using the CC feature, by listing them under the To: line at the top of each email received. The recipient of the email can see all of the CC recipients and deduce the reason for their inclusion. Dec 20, 2021 at 10:13
  • @MichaelWokeHarvey, that is true! But I wanted to be more explicit about it as I have seen some emails circling around with a short sentence indicating why X is in this email.

Yes. Personally, I prefer "cc'd" over "cc'ed", but dictionary.com says both forms are acceptable.
