Group Notices Service is designed to send out newsletters in the group: send a group notice, which consists of a header, text, and optional attachments.
Group notice is a pop-up message which is delivered to all members of your group. Members will receive it even being offline: SL sends the notification by email.
There are two types of the group notices at SmartBots:
All notices can have the inventory item attached (landmark, notecard or any other SL item).
These are notices to be sent once (either immediately or on a certain time). To create them go to the "One-Time Notices" tab .
When you create a group notice you must choose one (or more) groups which will recieve this notice. Next you need to select the date and time of delivery and enter text.
Notices will be delivered according to schedule. After delivery of the notice next to it will be noted when it was delivered:
These notices are different in that they are automatically sent to the group in accordance with the schedule. Schedule includes:
* One or more time (can send the same notice at 4,5,6 and 7 am etc)
* Day of the month
* Allowed the days of the week
After the creation of notice system will send out schedule when the bot is active. You can temporarily turn of any periodic notice.
Also you can send your message again in few clicks: just click on the "send again" link and set the new delivery time:
