The member's name, your association's name and the link to the registration form are automatically included in the email. Most of this email cannot be modified, however you are able to customise the first paragraph. Click in the text box and type your message.

10. Ensure you choose the ‘Send SMS Only’ or ‘Send both Email and SMS’ box has been ticked when customising your form to send this link via SMS. 

11. Click on Send emails now or Send Renewals Now  A message will appear confirming the number of emails/SMS that have been sent.  

Note: The link to the registration form ('Click here') can only to be used for single registrations, i.e. It will only allow one member to register at a time. If you provide members with the ability to process multiple registrations (i.e. price discounts for families), you will need to direct these members to a link or form on your website rather than through the Member Renewal email.
