TouchPoint has several different links that can be inserted into an email
to make it very easy for the person to register online:
To use any of these special links,
you always start with an Organization.
The organization is where the person will be enrolled
and/or added to a sub-group, or
flagged as attending or not attending a meeting.
Also, when creating the links in the email,
you will use either the org ID# or a Meeting ID#,
depending on the type of link you are using.
- Vote Link
- A vote link can be placed in an
email or newsletter to provide a one-click way
for a person in your database to register for an event,
or to provide extra information if they are already enrolled.
When clicked, the Vote Link will
enroll the person in the organization,
and place them in a specific sub-group within the organization
Vote Link Use Case 1
You are planning an event and
want your targeted audience to indicate
that they are planning to attend,
but you don’t need any extra information
that you might normally ask for in a regular online registration.
You could embed two (or more) Vote Links:
- Yes, I will attend
- No, I cannot attend
All the respondent has to do
is click one of the links.
It’s as simple as that!
Each of those 2 links represents a sub-group within the
organization you created.
You do not create
the groups ahead of time.
The sub-groups are created as soon as
someone clicks on one of them the first time.
Just create the organization and add the
Vote Links to the email.
When you create the Vote Link,
you can give the sub-group a shorter name
than what the person will click on in the email.
For the example above, you might want your groups to
be just Yes and No,
instead of Yes I will attend and No I cannot attend.
There are other features that can be embedded into the Vote Link,
such as whether or not you want to send an email confirmation.
You can also specify the message that will be displayed on the screen
based on which link they click.
Vote Link Use Case 2
Another use for Vote Links is to request more information
from people who are already enrolled in the Organization.
You can email them a Vote Link asking them to select an option,
which will become a sub-group within the Organization.
In this case, they are already enrolled,
so clicking the Vote Link will just put them in the sub-group
based on the link they click.
Obviously, they will not be re-enrolled or enrolled twice.
