Signing up for address book subscription notifications

Summary

For easy tracking and awareness of an address book's growth, you can sign up to receive two types of notifications: 

  • Join notification: this will provide an alert whenever a new subscriber joins the address book.
  • Daily summary: this will provide a daily digest of new subscribers which arrives the next day, summarising the subscribe activity of the address book for the previous day.

Adding (and removing) email addresses for notification signup

To add (and remove) email addresses for notifications of signups: 

  1. Go to Contacts > My contacts and click on the Properties icon of the relevant address book

  2. At the foot of the 'Edit address book' screen, click on the available link underneath the 'Join notification' and 'Daily summary' fields to add the email address of the account that you're logged in with, which will sign you up to either or both. Alternatively, you can type in a different email address for yourself.

    To remove signups, simply delete them from the field and click Save to confirm the removal. 

  3. Once happy with additions/removals, click Save to confirm

 

The join notification email

The join notification email provides you details about the latest contacts added to your address book. It shows the Total Subscribers, New Subscribers, and the time and dates your latest subscribers signed up.

    I really like the add me to Daily Summary option here, however would be a good idea if you could also have a Weekly and/or Monthly Summary as well, is there any plans to add this?
