Sailability Forum UK: new forum reply to Email lists, volunteer details etc

New reply from Simon Whiteley

<p>An update- we are now also using the system for recording our daily attendance by volunteers and sailors. We were struggling with people who had not registered or whose membership had not been renewed. Now we can only record attendance for people who have a current registration. So there is a practical reason for keeping everything up to date. We have a fairly lenient approach- we don't let the forms obstruct the fun. It also gives quick access to basic contact details and to Attendance history-who came last week?</p>
<p>Using a spreadsheet (lookup and pivot tables) it will be possible to match attendance with our demographic membership data- lots of fun for the winter evenings.</p>
<p>It works well on a touchscreen e.g. tablet- we plan to use a touchscreen with a Windows 10 PC.</p>

Email lists, volunteer details etc

<p>We wanted to find a system to manage its supporter, volunteer and sailor details. We were looking for something that would:</p>
<li>Maintain an email list for distributing newsletters, and notifying special events and changes to our schedule</li>
<li>Collect emergency contact details for everyone who goes on the water</li>
<li>Collect demographic information for fundraising etc and volunteer skills</li>
<li>Manage subscriptions for those who pay an annual fee</li>
<li>Collect daily registration and session data.</li>
<p>It also had to be user-friendly and simple to set up, as well as inexpensive!</p>
<p>Surprisingly we have come quite close, using a system called membermojo (<a href="" target="_blank"></a>), which does everything except 5 although that capability has been promised for the near future.</p>
<p>You can have a look at how we have set it up here: <a href="" target="_blank"></a></p>
