Yes! Using the Accelevents Engage Module, you can quickly and easily upload contacts and send email updates to your guests.

Important Notes:

  • This feature is only available for paid plans, including fundraising modules.

  • There is a limit of 6 email blasts per event

  • There is a limit of 5 contacts (email addresses) that can be added

  • If you require additional email blasts or contacts, just contact our customer support to increase them.

  • You can still use the feature even after the event ends, but you can only send emails by selecting "Now," and you CANNOT "Send Later"

Create Engage Emails

  • Go to Engage > Send Email

  • Click Create New

  • Select the audience you would like to send your email to:

    Note: All Contacts are all email addresses added to the Contact Lists tab in Engage

  • Add the Email Subject and compose your email

Customize Engage Emails

To customize your email, simply drag page elements to the template. Click the added element to see the settings on the right menu. If it's a text element, you should also see a toolbar on top of it for more setting options. To delete an element, select it and click the trash icon.

Note: There is no option to attach a file to the email.

Add Dynamic Values

You can add dynamic values or merge tags to your email to make the email more personalized. For example, you can place a dynamic value for the first name in an email template so that the greeting includes the recipient's name rather than a generic “Hello!”. The system will replace these variables with contact information and event information present in our system.

Click View Dynamic Values to see what values you can add to the engage email.

Send Emails to Potential Attendees
