Functionality to generate physical letters

My organization is not going to go entirely digital. I need to generate the occasional physical letter. The idea is that in addition to being able to generate ad-hoc emails, I want to be able to generate ad-hoc physical mailings. But they are not really ad-hoc; they correspond to points in my organization's processes that do not map to WildApricot. I want to store templates for these letters in WildApricot; when the need arises, I would like to be able to ask WildApricot to instantiate a template I pick for a member I pick. I can do the printing and phyiscal mailing myself, I am just looking for a bit of automation in producing the formatted text of the letter (using macros to automatically populate the letter with the right information).

    Hi there,

    It seems that the functionality of printing email templates still isn't available.

    What I would like to do is similar to how you can reprint invoices and payment receipts, but instead with emails from a contact's email log (membership activation) or email templates.

    I could imagine it would happen like a print preview. I understand that most users will receive email copies however a large majority of them prefer to have a physical copy of proof of membership.

    Is this possible?

    Yes, count me in for that too, we have a few members who insist on having mail rather than email.

    Thanks, Richard.

    Thanks for comments, they look quite reasonable. Unfortunately this is not in our current plans for 2011 but we will keep looking after this thread.

    I agree completely. Sometimes I have to send physical letters or membership cards and I would LOVE to be able to do that within wild apricot rather than having to export or copy past the member's data to a word processing document.
