The email/SMS function allows for organisations to extract a list of members and then email/SMS a message to selected people on the list.
This will allow for reminders, information and other updates to be sent directly to people from Surfguard.
Both the email and SMS messages are sent one way only — replies cannot be received.
For a person to receive email and SMS messages, they must have a valid email address and/or mobile phone number entered in their Surfguard membership details.
If a person does not wish to receive Email/SMS communication then a checkbox, Do not send SMS and/or Do not Send Email, must be ticked in the persons details in Surfguard. The check boxes are located at the bottom left-hand side of the members details screen under Other Details.
