Genius Hack: Assign a Custom Contact to Sign Ups

genius hack assign custom contacts person email

Want to maintain your secret identity? Appoint someone else as your sign up’s point person? Fortunately, you can do both when you assign a custom contact to a sign up.  

With our smart sign up tools, you can edit the contact name shown to sign up participants, and someone else can receive email communications about the sign up. 

Use the Custom Contacts tool to:

  • Assign a different contact person on the sign up instead of your own email address. This way, you can direct all sign up communication emails to someone else.
  • Direct sign up-related emails to additional people. This is handy if you need one or more people other than yourself to receive communication emails on a sign up.
  • Change the contact name on the sign up to a business, organization, club or any name you want to use.

How to Set Up a Custom Contact:

To get started, begin creating a sign up. On Step 1: General Details, scroll down to the “Advanced Settings.” With a premium account, you can turn on the option for “Custom Sign Up Contact.”

From here, you can enter a custom contact name and designate additional email addresses that you wish to receive sign up-related emails.

Note: You can only designate emails of people you have added as an administrator on your account. If you do not see a person’s email address listed, you’ll need to add them as an admin in the Tools section of your account

Once you have assigned people as admins, you will see their email addresses listed in the custom contact field. Select the correct email address and click “Update” to save the change. If you want your designated contacts to receive notification emails when people sign up, go to Step 5: Settings and select the option to “Notify all designated admins by email when people sign up or edit/delete their sign up slot.”
