Allowing Patrons to Subscribe or Unsubscribe Via the Internet

Subscribe to Syndicate

Patrons can subscribe or unsubscribe to mail lists of your choosing, using the internet in conjunction with the web sales module. To allow patrons to subscribe or unsubscribe from a mail list via the internet, you perform the following steps:

  1. Find the mail list you want to allow patrons to subscribe to or unsubscribe from.

    The example shows wording you might use for setting up ticket sales by lottery. It can be used for many purposes like:

    • Tell me about audtions
    • Keep me informed about musicals
    • Special Events interest me
    • Tell me about last minute deals
    • etc.

  2. Click the Allow patron to subscribe/unsubscribe via internet flag.

    A check mark will appear in the box. Patrons logged into the database through the web sales module can now subscribe/unsubscribe to this mail list.

  3. Optionally, click on double opt in email

    If set, the patron will get an email asking them to confirm they opted in. it might be wise to do this for some mail lists to confirm that the patrons are real.

  4. Repeat for each mail list needing access via the internet.
In order to subscribe to a Mail List online, a patron must be logged in to their online account - OR - you must have enabled the partial patron function of web sales.
