Two New Features for Yahrzeit Emails

Announcing two new features for yahrzeit emails. First — until now, the recipient of the reminders saw only the email address of the sender.

Thus, for example, assuming that … Continue reading Two New Features for Yahrzeit Emails

Send Several Thank-you Emails from One Screen

This post announces an express way to send acknowledgments for contributions, via email.

Statements by Email

We now have the ability to send statements by email. Taking our cue from banks and brokerages, we’ve opted not to send the actual statement by email. Instead, we send a rather long link that, when selected, takes the congregant directly into that family’s statement. There are a few very simple setup steps: Make an … Continue reading Statements by Email
