Consolidated event announcements

We run 3-5 events per week, so using the scheduled event email blasts are not an option as we would be bombarding people with emails all the time.

What would be great if we could consolidate all of the events in a single email and send that as a newsletter. I imagine it being something like the events list that could be inserted into the email like a widget or gadget.

Is there a way to do something like this currently?

Thanks Kerrie-Anne

        Our organization typically has multiple events on 4-5 days per week. Combine that with up to 3 announcements per event and we are creating an email blizzard. The solution Kerrie-Anne suggested would be a huge improvement.

        Another approach might be to give members a choice in their email preferences to choose whether or not to consolidate and at what frequency (daily vs weekly). Consolidated announcements would be sent automatically.

        We are looking for the exact same functionality as Kerrie-Anne suggested. We're currently using a trial version of WA but would love to find this feature get added.

        This is exactly what we need.
        We're a non profit, enterprise level paid subscriber to Wild Apricot, and we love it but the need to manually create newsletters listing our events is our biggest challenge due to the template restrictions.
        The perfect solution would be an ability to generate a newsletter by selecting upcoming events, responsive for mobile as well. It could just take the first paragraph of text and the picture and that would be fine.

        Hi Kerrie-Anne,

        Sorry, what you have described is not currently possible in Wild Apricot.

        Sounds like a good idea though for people who run many events, I will split this off into a separate thread.

        Sorry, just realised that this is probably in the wrong thread as it relates to consolidating event list instead of the automated event email notifications - saw the bit about consolidation from the first poster and was the closest I could find to what I am asking!

        Still keen to know if this is possible in the current system tho!

        Cheers

        Kerrie-Anne
