Did you know that Ten-Tenths can send you an e-mail reminder for events in our "Marshals Needed"
If you didn't well, we can! You can request a reminder up to three days in advance of an event. So if you've volunteered you can get a notification / reminder before the weekend!
EvilPumpkin has added nearly all the dates from Julian's volunteering site
to the calendar, along with the relevant link back to Julian's online volunteering forms.
To use this, find your event in the "Marshals Needed"
calendar and click on the "Request Reminder for this Event" link at the right hand side of the screen and then pick when you want the reminder e-mail sent.
You can also find all the events you've requested reminders for in your "My CP" under "Miscellaneous > Event Reminders"
BUT, there's more!
We now also offer text message reminders. If you've registered your mobile phone number then when you request a reminder you'll get a text message in addition to the e-mail. You will only receive ONE text message reminder per event.
Ok, what's the cost/catch?
There's no cost / catch for the e-mail reminders. We actually offer this service free on all our calendars.
There's a catch for the text message reminders though. These cost us money, so from time to time, if we can find someone willing to pay for it
, we may send you a promotional text message on behalf of one of our partners. We do promise however that there will be no more than ONE of these promotional text messages per month.
If you wish to take advantage of the text alerts you'll need to register your mobile number.
To register for mobile alerts:
Go to your "MyCP" and "Edit Your Details"
. At the bottom of the screen you'll find three boxes.
In the first one, enter your mobile number, enter this WITH the country code, but without any "+" or leading 0's.
So, if you're in the UK and your mobile number is 0777 123 12345 then enter this as 4477712312345
The second box is a tick-box. Read this carefully! "By ticking the box you agree that Ten-Tenths may send you SMS messages. These will be reminders for your chosen calendar events.
You also agree that Ten-Tenths may occasionally send you promotional messages on behalf of selected advertisers. There will be no more than one of these promotional messages sent per month.
To stop receiving SMS messages untick this box, or delete your phone number and verification code above."
Leave the "Mobile Phone Verify" box blank.
When you click "Save Changes" we'll check your mobile number and if it's valid we'll send you the verification code. This may take a few minutes depending on mobile phone network coverage etc.
When you get the validation code, go back in to your profile details and enter it in the third box.
(Yes, it's a bit of a faff around the first time, but we have to make sure you consent to receive messages, that it's your phone, etc.)
Oh, and only you and the site admins can see your phone number.
If you've any questions feel free to post them in this thread, or send me a PM.
As with any service provided by Tenths this service may be terminated at any time, anyone found abusing the service will have their number blocked or may even have their Tenths login suspended.
