by Adam Rosenberg

Greetings!

It's the "Salsa Weekly Highlight," your quick hit on what's what in Salsa to help get the most out of your online program. As always, you can find plenty more news, updates, and conversation throughout the week on SalsaCommons.org.

We recently highlighted Salsa's tools for personalizing thank-you pages with the name of your donor or supporter after s/he takes action.

Today, we're going to translate that same trick to the automated Email Triggers your action pages launch.

Personalized Email Triggers

I hope you're already using Email Triggers widely to thank your supporters when they join, give, register, or take action on your Salsa pages.

When someone likes you that much, why settle for "Dear Supporter"? Personalized greetings like "Dear Adam" show the recipient that you care.

Unfortunately, appearances are deceiving in this case.
