Messaging is used by Administrators of Entities (Clubs, Branches, or States) to send Surfguard related messages using the system itself.
This messaging system may only be used infrequently and is not intended to replace normal email.
There are two sub-menu options under ‘Messages’.
2. Create Messages.
The default Messages screen lists all unread messages; however, you can sort your messages using a number of options, including read, sent, draft, or archived listed in the View Message drop down box.
Once you have read a message
There are two ways to initiate a new message. You can click the ‘Create Message’ link from the default messages screen or you can click the sub-menu item on the toolbar. The screen that is displayed allows you to select the message recipients from the available list. You can do this by using the add (>) or remove (<) arrows. Once you have composed your message you have the option of sending it or saving it as a draft to be sent at a later time.
To view a message, click the message subject. The message will be displayed with the details of the message, including who sent it and who it was sent to.
To view all recipients of the message, click the ‘Show Recipients’ link.
A message can be forwarded as an email by clicking the “Forward as email” link. This will open the message in your email application with the subject and message content already filled out.
