00809: Newsletter management
Description: Management of simple newsletters sent to the members of small clubs/associations. The following elements/process steps are assumed:
There's a Member Register, as a PmWiki page. The Member Register stores for each Member: Name (First name; Surname) and Email address. Addition and deletion of a Member is done by a club official via a suitable form in a PmWiki page or, alternatively, imported via a csv list, e.g from a spreadsheet.
Newsletters are stored as PmWiki pages, available for reading from a Newsletter Archive. A new Newsletter can be stored as a Draft until ready for dispatch, and can be assumed to be text only.
When a Newsletter is ready for dispatch, a club official uses a form on a PmWiki page to (1) select the Newsletter to be sent, and to (2) via a button start the sending of Newsletter emails to those in the Member Register.
