New Email Newsletter: Weekly Digest for SparkTeams

Friday, October 03, 2008

This Monday (October 6, 2008), we are launching a new weekly email newsletter that will summarize what happened in your SparkTeams during the previous week, such as message board discussions, new members, and Team goal updates. This will be an easy way for you to stay up to speed with what’s happening in your Team—especially if you prefer to not receive notifications each time a new post is made. You will receive one weekly newsletter for each SparkTeam you belong to.

Because we feel that this will be a very helpful newsletter to members who belong to SparkTeams, we are automatically opting-in members to receive this email. But if you do not want to receive the Weekly Digest email, you can edit your SparkTeam preferences. (Simply uncheck the “Weekly Digest Email” box next to your SparkTeam(s) to unsubscribe.) Also, within each newsletter there will be an easy link you can click to unsubscribe at any time.

We hope you will find this Weekly Digest to be a helpful resource! Look for your first digest this Monday!

    I'm wondering a lot of the same things SASI is talking about, but will just wait and see what happens on Monday! This could be a little bizarre considering some of the goofing off that I do and how the laughter and tone has become somewhat contagious ... emoticon ... I may have to "straighten out my act!" Oh, no!!! emoticon

    I like the concept and it sure will make my life easier. I lead two teams and I try to make sure and send at least one team Spark Mail a week to each team. This way, on the weeks I am very busy, I'll know that they've at least had this Spark reminder.

However, I am also curious about how it will happen. Is that going to be compter generated, or will there be action required on the part of team leaders?

    This is great BUT I hope that each individual email notice of when someone replys to a thread or a new topic is created still comes into my mail box every day every time it occurs as this is the only way I can keep up on the threads and teams I belong to and lead......I do not have time to go into sparks and into each team daily to check every threads activity that is why I find the individual emails a huge asset to me personally.

    I guess I'm the only one out of the loop as I cannot fathom how a weekly digest will be done. How will each team in SP be summarized? There are hundreds and hundreds of teams, how is it possible that every team will be individually summarized? What will happen with teams that are not active, will the summary be "no activity?" I'm curious how this will all happen. Will only specific teams be summarized or all? Sounds like all. What will be summarized and how will someone who isn't with the team choose what is and isn't important to put in a summary? Just curious.

    This is such a GREAT idea!! Sometimes I'm too busy to respond to email notifications...and then they stop. This will help me to catch up! Thanks for another great feature! Now...folders to organize my saved items would be great (to match the buttons in the menu - nutrition, fitness, wellness, etc.) would make life at SP much easier!!
