How To Create Reminders In MemberPress
To create a new reminder, go to MemberPress >> Reminders >> Click on the “Add New” button to begin.
You will see available trigger options such as:
- Hours, days, weeks, months, or years
- Enable/disable subscription reminders for the user and admin
- Add specific memberships to send automated emails to
Example 1 – Let’s say you want to create a reminder that informs your subscribers when their debit/credit cards will be expiring.
Example 2 – Another could be you want to remind your new member after he or she signs up.
Enter the new reminder title and configure other options as mentioned above. Choose from the trigger options that suit your purpose. After that, then click the save button.
Editing MemberPress Reminders
To edit a reminder, simply click on the reminder you would like to edit from the MemberPress > Reminders page. The trigger section has got time frames like days, hours, months, and so on. Simply configure it to your aims.
Keep in mind that setting a value of zero for anything will result in an email being sent out as soon as the event happens. Select the exact trigger in the final drop-down before clicking the publish button.
The email section also is customizable via the visual editor. Perhaps you don’t want to use the default email, you can also edit and customize the email to be sent out if you want to send it to some specific members as seen below.
Once you are through with the editing or adjustment, be sure to click the ‘Update‘ button for this reminder before sending any tests to see those edits.
Sending A Reminder Test
Once you finish setting up a reminder, you can test it in order to ensure you set up the right stuff, and also to have a preview of how it would look in your users’ inboxes.
Click the Send Test button to send a test email to the email entered in your WordPress > Settings > General > Email Address field. Here’s an example of how to test reminders in MemberPress.
- Create a new reminder using the after-abandoned signup option
