How Do I Turn On the Reminder Feature?

Only site administrators, calendar administrators or philanthropy liaisons can turn on the reminder function for events.

  • Within the “Related To” section, drop down the menu where it says “–choose from below–” and choose a group.

  • Switch to the tab called “Reminder” and check the box within the “Also Remind” section.

  • Save your changes.

Note: If you were looking to send a reminder out to members within a specific member role, you’ll need to use the “Shown To” option as opposed to the “Related To” option because the “Related To” option is not yet equipped with member roles.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  •  I set up the reminder feature, but why didn’t anyone receive the reminder email? The reminder feature is designed to easily send an email-reminder to individuals who have signed up for your event. If you were looking to set up reminders for a specific group, e.g. all parents, you’ll want to read the section called, “Set up reminders for a specific group” (clicking this link takes you to the appropriate section).
  • What time does my signups and/or groups receive their event/meeting reminder? 4 a.m. (PST); 6 a.m. (CST).
  • Can I schedule multiple reminders to email out? At this time, we do not have this feature available; however, we do have plans to build this out in the future. We currently do not have a release date for it just yet. Please stay tuned!
