What is an E-list?
An E-list is a collaborative, community feature that allows users to subscribe to a list and communicate via email with the other users subscribed to the list. This can be used for communications such as volunteer opportunities, discussions or announcements.
How to access
You can access the E-List Management page by logging into your MemberClicks Admin section. After you log in, browse to Components > E-List Management.
The E-List Management page allows you to add, edit and delete E-Lists. E-Lists are mailing lists that your members can join. Each E-List has its own email address and anytime a member of the E-List sends to the address, their message is delivered to all other members of the E-List.
The E-List Management page displays all active and inactive E-Lists in your MemberClicks solution. You can use this page to add, edit or delete E-Lists.
Add a new E-List. This button will allow you to add new E-Lists to the system. Clicking on this button will bring up the E-List Setup page to add appropriate E-List information.
Edit. This button will allow you to edit existing E-Lists to the system. Clicking on this button will bring up the E-List Setup page to modify E-List information.
Delete. The Delete link will remove the E-List from your system. You will receive a modal confirmation window to confirm your deletion.
Adding Members to an E-List
From the E-list Management page in the Components Menu, click the name of the E-list to which you want to subscribe members.
Once you have selected the E-list, click the Member tab on the left hand side of the screen to bring up a list of the users already subscribed to the E-list.
Now click the Add Members icon in the top right corner of the list of subscribers.
The Add Members link will open a modal window in which you are able to search your database for members to add to the e-list. Once you have found the member you wish to add, check the box to the left hand side of the member's name. Please note you can add multiple members to the e-list at one time. The search box will search across any Quick Search enabled attributes and allows administrators to override any permissions set in elist management.
When you are finished searching and tagging profiles, click the Continue button.
You will now see a list of the users who will be subscribed to the e-list. You can choose to opt the users into or out of e-mail delivery by checking the E-mail Delivery box. You can also designate a delivery e-mail address for each user if it is different from the default e-mail address in each profile. When you are finished, click the Add Members button
As soon as users are added to an e-list, they will receive the Welcome E-mail whether or not you have opted them into e-mail delivery, if you have created a Welcome E-mail on the E-list Setup page. We recommend including instructions on how to manage E-list subscriptions in the Welcome E-mail.
Since we never limit the amount of E-Lists you can have, why delete them? Simply make them inactive so you can always come back to the information at a later date.
