Email Username to all Users

Postby tshore » Wed Dec 09, 2009 1:26 pm

I would like to be able to send out an email to all users registered with our conference website. The purpose is to tell them that the conference website is up and running and ready to receive abstract submissions. I would like to include the user's username in the email. Last year (our 2nd year using OCS 2) we had 30-40 people who ended up creating new accounts and I would like to avoid that this year. I realize that this is not something currently built-in to OCS. However, I would appreciate any guidance you could give me in order to allow me to send out these emails.

Thank you.

Happy New Year.

I'm still looking for some guidance on this. I would appreciate any advice you can offer.

Hi Trudy,

Easiest is probably to use the existing Notify Users email option (available as Director) and, rather than include any username/password information, just include a reminder that they are, indeed, registered with the site, and provide a link to the site login (and probably also forgot password) page.

Cheers,
James
