At the January meeting, I gave an update on the website. Part of my update was that I was looking at ways to automatically notify the Brothers of new postings to the Federation website. This is the first part of what I presented that night.
You may have noticed that off to the right of where these posts appear is a section where you can register to receive updates to the Federation website via e-mail. Updates are usually posts that appear in this section of the website or events that are posted to the calendar. By subscribing to the updates, you receive e-mails as soon as items are posted to the website.
Simply enter your name and e-mail address and click Subscribe. You will receive an e-mail from "Bergen Federation Knights of Columbus" with the subject "Bergen Federation Knights of Columbus - Please confirm your subscription". When you open the e-mail there will be a sentence stating that the website received an e-mail from your e-mail address and asks you to confirm it by "clicking here". When you do so, you will receive a message thanking you and that you have been successfully subscribed as well as a welcome e-mail. In case you don't see the e-mail, check your spam filter as well as your spam folder in your e-mail system.
As new posts are added to the website, subscribers will receive an e-mail with the words "New Post Published" in the subject line along with the post title. Once you open the e-mail, there will be a link that you can click on which will open the post in your browser.
