Direct Link to Mail Lists

If you make some mail lists available online, that patrons can subscribe to them in one of two ways:
  • You can direct people to a sign up web site that only requires name, email address and clicking on some mail lists that describe how your venue will contact them. This always uses a 'double-opt-in' approach for data accuracy and prevent spamming.
  • You can also have people log into the web site and select mail lists on the patron account window. These mail lists may optionally be set for double opt in

This link will allow a patron to subscribe to the mail lists indicated by simply adding their first name, last name and email address.

  • If the patron's email address does not exist, Theatre Manager will create a limited profile patron in the Theatre Manager database.
  • If the patron's email address already exists, Theatre Manager adds the patron to the mail list
  • In both cases, a double opt in email is sent to the patron's email address asking them to confirm they want to be added to the mail list. If they fail to respond within the time limit on company preferences, they will be removed from the mail list automatically
