Emails can be sent to all Members or Member Type (Members), previous Members who have not enrolled this year (Subscriptions), Members in a particular Course (Enrolments) and members who have enrolled but not paid their subscription (Cash Receipts). Web addresses are “live” for the recipients and the facility to add attachments to the email. Care must be taken to avoid sending out unnecessary or incorrect emails which irritate and annoy Members.
    Course Listing Colours are set in the System settings. This could be blue for a wait-listed Course and dark-yellow for Course that have finished. New Courses could be green. The colours can be changed by the Administrator. “Hovering” the mouse over the Course provides additional information.
