Q: What is SURCA ?
A: SURCA is GroupMail’s Online Subscription Service for managing Opt-In and Opt-Outs Requests.
Create an Opt-In Subscription Form for your Website.
When creating a New Local GroupMail Group
Check on the option “Use Subscription Service for this Group”
Note : If this is an existing Group you can simply right click on it and choose Modify to enable this option.
This option is only available for “Local Groups“.
Click on “Modify” and select the “Subscribers” tab.
Assign the fields within your Group to store the recipients Opt-In details.
First Name is stored in the Field “Firstname” within your Group.
Last Name is stored in the Field “Lastname” within your Group.
Note: If you check on “Optional”, then the recipient has the option to populate this field or leave it blank.
Click on Ok to Save.
This creates a new Opt-In List on Surca.
Next you need to Log-On to Surca
(Note: You’ll need a GroupMetrics Account)
Once logged on then you have the option to select the “List” you want Subscribers to be added to.
For each Group that has Subscription Services enabled in GroupMail it will generate a corresponding list in Surca.
Under Actions click on “More Info”.
The “Subscribe Link” is what you need to use to place the Opt-In Form on your Website.
(Your Website Administrator can do this for you).
Note: If you click on “Show Form” you can see how this Opt-In Form displays.
Now once you process our Subscriber Add-On, it will automatically add the recipients that Subscribe through this Form to your GroupMail Group.
