Mail->Express Message is used to Email a single person or group of people an email to their specific email addresses stored in our system.
These messages are sent using the studio email address provided to CompuDance. If you want to change this email address, you must send us a written request to do so.
A copy of the message will also be sent to the User email address who created the message. This will allow the actual sender from seeing the message sent and let the studio know which user sent which message.
The studio email address will get all replies and delivery notification failures so you can correct email addresses as needed.

Click the class dropdown to view classes. If you want to send to all of your Monday classes, click the dropdown on “M” and choose “Checked”. Select your Monday classes and click OK.

Creating the Email Message

The Subject line is required. Since the email is sent from the Studio email address, you can use the subject to connect with the recipient about the email contents.

When you are composing your email message, you may want to write it in a word processor program or other content creator. You can copy and paste it into the email Design box in either regular format or as HTML in the HTML tab on the bottom left side. You can then switch the view to Preview.

If an email is sent successfully, you will see it in the Express Send Mailbox
