Jump to: navigation, search
Sending an email may be done multiple places throughout the software, any of which will automatically create an entry in the communication history. However, if sending to a single member, choosing Send an Email on the Communication tab streamlines the process by automatically selecting the current member’s address.
Send an email
1.
On the Communication tab, click New Communication and click Email with GrowthZone/ChamberMaster or Email with Outlook.
2.
If selecting Email with GrowthZone/ChamberMaster, edit the Send an Email fields. See Figure 4-3 and Table 4-2. If selecting Email with Outlook, complete your own email screen and send using your own familiar steps. See “Email Sending Options” for more information.
3.
Click Send Email.
Selecting to include a carbon copy to sender allows a staff person the ability to store and file emails in their own email program and also the ability to view the email as it will be seen by the recipient.
