A mailing tool is available to contact users in the menu Journal management/Mail/Mailing.
You can either send a message to a specific user or send a collective email to a group of recipients by selecting their role in the journal:
The available fields allow:
- to change the information in the fields “from” and “reply to”
- to select a slot of recipient by clicking to the “To” label, then a new window is open. All contact or a selection (by name, by role) can be selected for the mailing. After the selection of the recipient, clic to “submit “ and close the window.
- The labels CC and BCC allow to add recipient too
To display the available templates, go to Journal management/Mail/Templates.
All templates can be modified to better fit the editorial board’s need. To do so, click on the “edit” icon on the right hand side:
The name, subject and content of the message can be customised. See Variables to insert in mail templates to change the “tags” used by the mailing module.
The mail history section lists all messages (automatic notifications and emails) sent via the platform. It is available in the menu Journal management/Mail/History.
