This window displays a list of the patrons in the mail list. There are a number of things you can do with these patrons like:
  • generate mail labels
  • determine distance from your venue
  • export them
  • use them in criteria for reports or other mail lists
  • drag individuals from one mail list to another to place them into two lists
  • use the list to allow people to subscribe and unsubscribe to marketing lists online
  • drag them onto tasks to indicate who is invited.
Tracking unsubscribes: If a patron unsubscribes from the mail list online, they are not removed from the mail list. Their record gets marked with an unsubscribed date. This tracks who no longer wants information from your venue for a specific purpose.
You may alter the subscribe status using the add and remove buttons as described below.
