Communications | Overview

GameDay's Communications section allows you to pre-design email communications by creating re-usable Email Templates to define the content and subject of a certain type of email you want to send.

You can also keep track of any existing email campaigns you've sent through GameDay, including the message that was sent, the recipients, the date and the status of the campaign.

Note: The process of sending emails to participants directly through GameDay differs slightly between Members and Event Entrants. Please read the articles below for more information on sending emails through GameDay:

To access the Communications menu, either click the Members or Events option from the left-hand menu, then select COMMUNICATIONS:

Communications List

The Communications page shows a list of any Email Templates you have already created, with a range of information including:

  • Email Template Name
  • Subject: The content that will appear in the subject line when a recipient opens the email.
  • Description: An optional description that an administrator can add to the email template for internal reference.
  • Message Plain Text (Preview): A preview of the content that has been added to the Plain Text Message.
  • Message Rich Text (Preview): A preview of the content that has been added to the Rich Text Message.

Note: Adding a Plain Text Message is not mandatory, however it is recommended to add a Plain Text Message in addition to a Rich Text Message to ensure that individuals that are unable to render rich text content are able to read the email.
