Setting Up Messages      Samples for Inspiration        

A Welcome Message in Flocknote is just a little "hello" you can opt to send automatically to your members when they sign up for your Flocknote network. By default, it is turned off. To activate it, simply type in your own message!  Just a tip: we recommend using discretion when setting these for multiple groups. A member who joins multiple groups (that each has welcome messages added) will receive each welcome message.

To set up a welcome message for your "Everyone" group:

Click the ( ---) icon in the main menu and select Welcome Message. You can also click on the "Everyone" group from the lefthand sidebar and then click the gray "cogwheel" icon in the top right-hand corner to find it as an option in the dropdown menu. 

To set a welcome message for any other group:

Click on the name of the group from the lefthand sidebar and then click the gray "cogwheel" icon in the top right-hand corner to find it as an option in the dropdown menu. 

Select the  checkbox to send an email welcome message to new members when they sign up. Don't forget to type in your custom message and click Save when done! 

Sample Welcome Messages

For your "Everyone" group:
Thanks for signing up for Holy Cross Church's communications via Flocknote! You can expect to receive bulletins once a week on Saturday mornings in preparation for services on Sunday. We'll also occasionally send emergency updates and reminders when needed. For more detailed information relating to specific groups and ministries, please join those available groups on Flocknote. If you have any questions, please call our church secretary at XXX-867-5309 or send a message on our website at www.____.org.
You've successfully signed up to receive communication from Holy Cross Church which we will send via Flocknote. Be sure to save mail@flocknote.com to your email address book to make sure messages don't go to your "spam" folders. Also, please check out an introductory message from our pastor at www.vimeo.com/XXXXX. God bless you! :)
For an individual ministry:
Welcome to the Volunteer Ministry group! Each week we'll be sending a signup link with various volunteer opportunities that you can sign up for. All questions can be sent to George Jetson at gjetson@holycrosschurch.org.

P.S. You can also send a welcome text message to those that join your network via Text-to-Join. Learn more about setting that up HERE!
