Due-date reminder emails
What do the emails look like?
A typical email might look like this.
Dear Anna Editor,
This is a reminder from Futureproofs - the online proofing platform.
The First proofs on your project The Big Book of Words are due to be completed in three days, on the 19th November 2014. Please make sure that you complete your work by checking the proofs here:
Thanks for using Futureproofs.
The email opens with your name, to reassure you that this email is really coming from us.
There is then a brief reminder of the email's purpose, followed by a link to the site so that you can easily check the relevant proofs.
How often do you send these emails?
Due-date reminder emails are, as their name suggests, sent when proofs are due. If none of your projects have any proofs that are due soon, we will not send you an email about that. Also, if you've marked the proof as complete, we won't send you reminders about it. Only if something requires your attention will we get in touch.
We will warn you of proofs that are due at three stages.
- 3 days before the due date.
- 1 day before the due date.
- On the due date itself.
If you have any problems with the digest emails, please contact us via the widget at the bottom of the screen and we'll do our best to sort them out.
