Club2Class can streamline key processes such as emailing class members on upcoming events, collating responses/tracking participation and managing crew matching.
Howevever, there are a few important fields that you need to be aware of when creating or editing an event that can impact the information and response in custom emails:
When creating an event, be mindful to provide a unique and specific event Name. This is included in the Subject of event emails and in the email body and will help people understand which event/race you are referring to in the email. e.g. Summer Series Day 1. You may wish to use the Event details box to supply tide information etc.
Definitions for boat classes are pre-defined in Club2Class and include information on number of crew per class. This defines response commands in automated and custom emails (e.g. "I can crew", "I need crew" etc). Non-standard classes can be set up at the Club level by the Club Administrator.
There are currently 4 different event types available:
Each event type has pre-defined response commands that populate automatically in the event emails. For example, the commands for social events (e.g. "Sorry I can't make it", "I am coming + guest") are different to those for Sailboat racing and Social sailing (e.g. "I can sail", "I need a helm") and Sailboat training (e.g. "I can do training").
