Tip #073 – “Preferred” E-Mail Address


Tip #073
“Preferred” E-Mail Address

This is a new feature, so you may not have it in your system until your next update.

flowerSoft will not give you the opportunity to mark an e-mail address as the “preferred” address for an account that has more than one email address.

When should you use this new feature?
Not often.  As a matter of fact, I would avoid using it unless you absolutely need to use it.

Why?
Because when you mark an address in an account as the “preferred” e-mail address, that will be the only address that will get order and delivery confirmations.

So, if you have 5 e-mail addresses for one account flowerSoft will stop and show you a list with the different e-mail addresses and ask you to select the one you want to send the email to.

If one of those addresses is marked as the “preferred” address, flowerSoft will no longer show you the list and simply and the email to the “preferred” address.

The only other option is to indicated to flowerSoft that you want all the email addresses in an account to receive the order and delivery confirmations, in which case flowerSoft will disregard the “preferred” e-mail marking and send the confirmation to all the e-mail accounts.
