Site Byte: Newsletters: What are they? Do I need them?
Have you been receiving email notifications with "Newsletter" but doesn't contain much more than that? Below, we'll try to explain some of the questions we've encountered.
What is a Newsletter?Newsletters are an automatic, subscription-based, feature provided by our website. It is sent monthly as a summary or digest of what's happening in a Section and/or committee you belong to. This is separate from an individual Section's monthly or quarterly newsletter containing articles and advertisements for upcoming event.
What's inside a Newsletter?Newsletters digest a few items: new members to a section, profile updates of members in the section, blog posts, photo uploads, and popular forum topics and discussions.
If a newsletter you receive seems to be blank or close to it, that means your Section hasn't been communicating with each other. Please introduce yourself in the forum. As a member of a section, you are part of something several others are a part of. Help be an active part of this community!
Yea, that's cute and all. How do I stop getting these Newsletters?Newsletters are subscription based, so you can update whether you receive these emails via a few clicks in your user profile settings.
To turn off all Newsletters, go to Manage Profile and then Preferences. Near the very bottom, uncheck the "Group Digest" to stop getting a monthly Newsletter (digest of your groups/Sections). Once you uncheck, click the orange button that says "Save My Settings"
