To manage a number of general Automation Rule settings and configure their default run-time schedule/frequency:
- Access the Admin interface.
- Navigate to Automation > Settings.
Configure General Settings
At the top is the General area, where you can set important information that will be used in various Automation Rule emails. If you make any changes, click Save at the bottom of the page.
|Community Name||This should be the name of your community, organization, etc. The Community Name will be applied to the [Tenant.CommunityName] variable in any Automation Rule email templates that use it.|
|Community Manager's Email Address||
Select your community's Community Manager from the menu. Their email address will be used as the From Address and email signature block in various email rules.
NOTE: Only users with Super Admin rights are selectable in the menu.
|Link To Your "Introduce Yourself" Thread||A community best-practice is to create an "Introduce Yourself" thread in one of your site's Discussions where members can introduce themselves to the community. If you have such a thread, link to it here.|
|Link To Renew||For many integrated clients, Higher Logic pulls over users' membership renewal information from their AMS or database. If you have a dues renewal page you want to make available, link to it here.|
