    Do you have an automated six week process to sending text and emails to new comers?

    Love this feature! Suggestion for you - give the same functionality to the "alerts" as you do with follow ups regarding combining events. Sending a "we miss you" postcard to someone who comes every week but came 6 weeks ago to a different service once can be embarrassing and send the wrong message, and cross checking alerts every week is cumbersome and seems unnecessary given that the functionality is already in follow ups. Either that, or add "missed event" to the follow up task.

    How do I add the event to choose from it doesn't say. So if someone files out the form to join a group and it goes into the forms area. I get an email.. I think alerting me and I go and check, now how do I add them to a follow-up series?

    Also, 1st-time visitors, how do we set up auto event my drop downs are blank

    @paulalee27 It sounds like we may need to get some events set up on the Breeze calendar before we can create these follow-ups! I would absolutely love to help with this! I have created a ticket and sent you an email to assist further with this. Look forward to working with you on this!

    Is there a way to set up an automatic follow-up task just not triggered by someone attending an event but by simply entering their information i.e. a new person  ?

    Hey @katyclemons!

    This would be neat! However, at this time that is not a current feature within Breeze. Would you consider sharing this on our feature request page? If so check this page out: www.breezechms.com/features

    Happy Breezing!

    Our church would like to have a welcome email sent to newcomers automatically (we identify them as a newcomer, and a pre-made email is automatically sent). Is there a way to do this with follow-ups or tags? Is this accomplished by running the MailChimp extension?

    Hey @Luke!

    Great question. We do have many automated tasks within Breeze, however the Birthday email is the only automated email that automatically gets sent out. While we can get to your desired results eventually, there would just be a bit of some manual work up front.

    This might be most helpful: You can add all of your newcomers to a tag, and then compose an email to be sent to that tag at a later time and date.

    Here is some more information on tags and emails.

    Is there a way to set up an automatic email when someone gives for first time or attends church for the first (or second) time? I see there is a way an automatic email can be set up for birthdays. What about these other important tasks?

     

    If not, can that be added? Thanks so much!

    Hey @melreddy!

    Great question! At this time that is not a current feature within Breeze but we're happy to think it over. I'd love if there was a way for this also.

    For now, a great solution is to group everyone who gives or attends for the first time by tags, then you can set up a email for that tag to be sent out at a later time and date. This would automatically go out to those in the tag. For example if they visited Sunday, you could set the tag up Monday and have the email send to them a few days later by scheduling it.

    Here are some additional resources that might be helpful in setting this up:

    Is there a way to view the timestamp of when someone is added to Breeze for the first time?
