Four Questions

I scanned the KB, but these answers didn't jump out at me--

If I want to put a field in my weekly member email that will "see" the member's pickup location for THAT WEEK, as opposed to their primary pickup location (i.e., that will "see" any temporary changes scheduled for that week) what field should I use?

Two A
If I want to put a field in the Weekly Email that will indicate whether a member's share is on HOLD for that week, what field can I use?

Two B
Also is there a field that would indicate if a member is slated to receive a Makeup Share that week?

Do ALL listed members receive the weekly pickup reminders, or only the PRIMARY?

Just hoping to buff up a few things before I turn the program over to Bridget, who starts next week. Thanks for these answers, and all the others over the years!

    Hi Marjorie,

    To answer your questions...

    The "pickup location" is always going to be what the pickup location is set to at that moment. It does not look to see that there is a scheduled change in the future and that the email is relevant to that future date. It's not very sophisticated. What the scheduled action tool does is actually just do the manual work for you. On the action day, it sets the pickup to the temporary location, and on the revert day at the end of the action, it sets the pickup back to the original.

    So, if you just send your email after the "action day" where any temporary pickup location changes run, then it will show that pickup location. Does that make sense?

    Two A. There is not a field for showing if someone is on hold or not. But in the automated pickup reminders, if you are using that tool, it will put at the top a big reminder that they are on hold. It sounds like you are talking about the automated pickup reminders, not a general email with the Send Mail tool. So I think we've got you covered there.

    Two B. There is not a specific field for reminding them that they are scheduled for a double box.

    All listed contacts get the pickup reminders.

    Good luck wherever your travels take you, Marjorie!

    Let Bridget know we're happy to answer questions as they come up.
