Manage Subscription Registration¶
If you have more than one emailed newsletter for your church, you will want to create a Manage Subscription registration so that subscribers can control their subscriptions themselves. This makes it very easy for someone to subscribe or unsubscribe, without having to totally unsubscribe from the sender.
As you create the organizations mentioned below, place them in a common Program and Division. This is so you can associate the Newsletter organizations with the Subscription organizations. This works just like selecting the pick list for a User Selects type of registration.
How Manage Subscription Works¶
When someone clicks uses a Register Link from an email, he will be presented with a page that lists all available newsletters as in the image above. These are the orgs in the pick list on the Master Org.
Using the checkboxes, the person can select (or deselect) any Newsletter and then click Submit. He will be enrolled in each org for the Newsletter he selects. If he deselects a Newsletter for which he has previously been subscribed, he will be dropped from that org.
If he used a link from your website, he can login if he has an account and go directly to the Manage Subscriptions page. Or, he can enter his Name, Date of Birth, and/or Email Address to find his record in the database. In this case, he will be emailed a link to manage his subscriptions.
If the record is not found, he will provide more information to create a new people record just like other online registrations. In this instance, the person will see a message that a link has been sent to him.
After someone subscribes or manages his existing subscriptions, he will see an online message, and will also receive an email confirmation.
