Email Sending

How do I send different versions of the template email to different submitters.

You can only save one template for each type of automated email (submission confirmation, acceptance notification etc) per CFP.

When you use a template, for example when accepting a submission, you are presented with a screen to enable you to make any ‘one off’ changes required for that particular submitter.

How do I schedule automated emails to remind submitters that the deadline is approaching?

This feature is coming soon! In the meantime, you can use the “nudge draft submitters” feature, or send a one-off bulk email to selected (or all) submitters.

How do I send session details to a submitter.

To send messages to speakers we suggest you use the ‘Speaker Confirmation’ feature. If you want to instead send details on sessions to a submitter then either select ‘Email Submitter’ bulk action on the submissions list, or click the ‘Email submitter’ button on an individual submission.

You will then see the message composer with a ‘Include scheduled session details’ check box. When selected you will see additional options you can add to the template such as {{time}} for the session time.

If you have configured your CFP to create submissions in a specific event then a drop down will be shown so you can choose the event you wish to reference.

Note that the email will only be sent to submissions with a scheduled session. Any submissions without a scheduled session will be skipped.
