- ‘Settings’ – ‘Emails’ – ‘Create A New Email’
A new screen will now appear:
Email campaigns can be used in a variety of ways, for example, to provide ‘On The Day’ information, information about your event, reminders about your event or other upcoming events, thank you emails for after your event has taken place or anything you like.
You can customise emails to whatever you want (email subject line, change banner, text, font size, etc) and pull in whatever parameters you wish to use also in your email. You can also add attachments, just like a normal email.
If you have more than one event, you can select which event you wish to send out the email to. In this case, you just have 'A Test Event'. If more than one event, they would all show up in a drop-down box and you can select your event:
You can choose to make this email automated upon registration or you can choose to send it when you like just by flicking the ‘Automated Email’ option on or off. Once you have finished composing your email, select ‘Save’.
Click ‘Save’ at the bottom of your email campaign. It will then take you back to the main ‘Email Participants’ screen, where you can choose to ‘Preview’ your email (send it to yourself to test what it looks like before sending out to participants) or ‘Send’ to all participants. These buttons are found at the right-hand-side:
If you are happy with how your email looks, click ‘Send’; it will send to all your participants of your chosen race.
Your email campaign will also track how many people your email has been sent to, how many people have opened the email and how many people have clicked on a link in your email (if you choose to include a link).
