Notification Emails Explained

Last Updated: Oct 04, 2018 09:11AM PDT

Notification emails in Peer-to-Peer campaigns are automatically triggered when fundraisers take action. This support article will describe how to set up a notification email and explain the options available.


1. Open Your Campaign

Navigate to your account's Campaigns tab and click on the campaign you want to open. This will bring you to the Overview tab for that particular campaign.

2. Click the Email Tab

Inside your Campaign Manager click the Email tab.

3. Select Supporter Notifications

In the Email tab select Supporter Notifications to see all available notification emails. There are two types of notification emails: those that are required and cannot be turned off and those that can be toggled on and off.

4. Edit a Supporter Notification Email

To design a specific notification email, click the email name or gray arrow to edit the email. After selecting an email, you will go through the three-step process of designing your email.


The Setup section allows you to customize how the email will appear in your fundraiser's inbox, and also provide them with an email to which they can respond with any questions.


The Content section is where you can design all the different aspects of your email. This is your chance to rally your fundraisers to go the extra mile to reach their fundraising goal, so be sure to use some inspiring images and words to give them the motivation they need!


Once you have created the email you want your fundraisers to receive, you can take it for a test run. Add an email to the Send Test Email to have a test copy of the complete email sent to you for review. If everything looks good, click Save!
