Update from the Support Team 

This month, we are sharing answers to frequently asked support questions. 

 

Changing the renewal date for a membership level didn't change the members' renewal dates. Why not?

When you change the renewal date for a membership level, the change is not applied to existing memberships, only to future ones. For instructions on bulk updating the renewal dates for existing members, click here

 

How do I send a renewal reminder after the renewal date?

To send a renewal reminder email after the renewal date has passed, you have to do it manually, following these steps:  

  1. Hover over the Members menu and select the Member emails option.  

  1. Under Renewal reminders, click the Reminder 1 email link.
      

  1. Click the Edit button.
      

  1. Select and copy the body of the email template.
      

  1. Click the Cancel button to exit edit mode. 

  1. At the top of the screen, click the Summary option to display the members summary.  

  1. If you want to email all your members, click the Email all members button at the top.

    If you just want to email a particular membership level, click that level's total then click the Email members button.
      

  1. From the email wizard that appear, chose the email template you want to use.  

  1. Select the text in the body of the email and paste the text you copied from the Reminder 1 email template.

Meet the Team: Catherine Chea, Product Content Manager  

Hi there! I’m Catherine, and I’ve been at Wild Apricot for over a year. 

 

As the Product Content Manager, I communicate product features and updates to help you make the most of Wild Apricot. What I love about my role is working closely with fun people from different teams, from Product and Onboarding to Marketing and Support, and gathering information and ideas for our marketing campaigns. 

 

I also love featuring our customers from time to time and sharing their mission, including writing customer success stories.  

 

Outside of my day job, I enjoy taking creative writing classes, playing the piano (here’s my old YouTube channel) and discovering a new gelato or bubble tea shop in downtown Toronto.  

 

If you ever need help running your organization or using Wild Apricot, you can find various advice on our Resource Library page and Help Center.
