Email Settings

Site Email Address

Your site's email address is based upon the TimeBank's shortname. If your TimeBank is visible at http://example.timebank.org then your TimeBank's shortname is "example".


Coordinators cannot change their TimeBank' email address.

See using my site's email address for more details.

Email Subject Brand

In order to explicitly identify email originating from the TimeBank, all email subjects sent by Community Weaver contain a prefix which make them easily identifiable as originating from. By default, it is the TimeBank Name of your TimeBank, with hard brackets around it. For example:

   Subject: [Springfield TimeBank] Member updates

You can customize this to a shorter or more identifiable name by editing this value. You should select a shorter name which is similar enough to your TimeBank Name so that there is no confusion when received by members.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The email subject brand cannot be more than 32 characters long.

Member Update Emails?

To have Community Weaver automatically and regularly send all members a Member Update Email listing the recent changes to the site check the box. To send no member update emails to members, uncheck the box.

The frequency of the Member Update Email is determined by each member in their notification email frequency configuration.

Send hour of day

This setting defines the time of day that the Member Updates will be sent for the members who have selected Daily or Weekly notification frequency. This also defines the time of day that the Coordinator Report is to coordinators who have selected Daily or Weekly notification frequency.

Members have the ability to choose the frequency setting Notification Email Frequency, which controls how often these messages are sent to each individual member.

Coordinators can switch the Member Update Email notifications on or off for the entire timebank (see the section above).

Email Fields

Within any email notification sent by Community Weaver, you can specify special "fields" which are replaced for each email sent. for more details see: customizing email notifications.
