Sending an Email

The email system allows you to send emails and receive emails at the email address you designate. You can send...

You can create unique messages each time you send an email, or you can save (multiple) email templates to use repeatedly which can, if you desire, automatically fill in information such as player name, current handicap, etc. One of the early emails that you might want to send your entire group - after you have completed Steps 1 ~ 4 of "First Steps" - is the email about how to access their information online.

How to Send an Email

  1. In Handicap System, activate the Options Menu by placing your pointer inside the area marked below in orange

  1. Click on "Email" link under "Players" section on the Options Menu (pictured above at top). The first time you do this, you will see this window:

  1. Fill in the "From" Organization Name (could be a person's name) and Email Address.

  1. Click on "Player(s) to Email" button. The following window appears.  Select players to whom your email will be sent. Note: you can do this after you have composed your message as well.

  1. Depending on how many golfers you have in the Roster, this list may be on multiple pages. Make sure you select golfers - or deselect - on ALL pages.

  1. When you have selected the players you want to email, click on Save button.

  1. Type in the Subject line and your message.

  2. Optionally use merge fields to fill in information automatically.

Note: You can insert "merge" fields which automatically fill in players' information. Click the Insert Data Field button and select the information you wish to merge. In the example below, the <<FirstName>>, <<Index>>, <<GSID#>> and <<Password>> will automatically fill with each recipient's unique information when emails are sent.

  1. When you have composed your message and selected the player to whom your email will be sent, click on the Send button in the image above.

  2. If you have more than one player to whom the email is going, the Preview Emails window will appear. Click the Send Emails button to send your emails.
