RSVP directly from email

I support this idea.

Oh ho ho ho! This is a great idea.

Would be great not just for event-RSVPs, but also for Sign-Up sheets!

At the very least, one more hurdle to getting “busy” parents to RSVP or sign-up…

Go, Go Go!

Excellent! … As an event organizer myself, I am stifled and frustrated at the amount of adult parents that don’t have the courtesy to RSVP … likely because it’s not convenient.

When you implement this, I promise to sing your praises and recruit our Cub Scout Pack and at least 2 other local troops to get on board with TroopTrack!

Count me in, I echo the comments on the lack of rsvps from adults and scouts

Any updates on when this might appear TT?

Hey there…I posted a similar request to simplify the RSVP process in the newsletters Click here to view the post

Could you implement something like that while you work on the instant RSVP from an email feature?
I think parents get overwhelmed with so many emails and when you have a very active troop (like ours) you get too many emails - new events + reminders for upcoming events + newsletters + random emails in between. It’s overload, so they just ignore them all.

Simplifying the newsletters so you only see event titles and have to click for more info would actually make them read the event details. Use the newsletter to show only a LIST of the upcoming events and their RSVP status (registered, no reply, declined) so they can stay on top of it.

Oh yeah - and make it easy for them to add all RSVP’d events to their Google calendar please!

Sign-ups too! Awesome thought.

I support this as well.

Not mentioned (directly that I can see) was the idea that the “Email Invitees” email should also contain a link to the calendar event. There was a post on that idea, but it was closed as a duplicate of this. Since I don’t see anyone mention it, I’m adding this post to include that idea.

Thanks!

I agree. Here is a screenshot. RSVP from an email without having to log in makes my life much easier.

@mlsully2002,

Hi Matt,
I am adding you to this so it’s on the staff radar.
Anything the TT staff can do on this would be greatly appreciated!

Ditto. I sent out my first email asking for RSVP’s and 3 families have responded (out of ~20). Maybe having a link in the email would have made a difference.

I agree that including “RSVP Request” or something similar in the subject line would be helpful for the families.

I don’t know how you would know to include the non-registered siblings in the email, since I don’t see them listed in the household information. (Maybe I missed it?)

There is another thread in which we were discussing how to capture information for the invited guests - names, ages, genders, etc. Maybe if you click the RSVP link in the emai, you could have an option to enter guests/ sibling information at that time?

Not a programmer! :slight_smile:

Any news on this? Only one or two out of 24 RSVP via troopTrack because it’s too hard - clicking on a link in an email would be a lot more useful. We’ve given up asking for RSVP’s via TT - it is a waste of time the way it is now :cry:

I like this idea as well… However, one caveat that is not being looked at
with this suggestion is, the option we have to make when planning an event,
and that is “Payment Required to RSVP”. As a coder, that option,
unless you have money already in the Scout’s account would be rather difficult.
Mainly because you would still have more clicking to make the payment.

I’m just throwing this out there…

Agree completely with everyone that this will be a great feature. Thank you for agreeing to add this in as a feature. Love the power for Leaders, but always want it as simple as possible for Parents and Scouts.

While you are working on this, a simple related enhancement would be to put the user’s current status in the email. "Your RSVP is: Yes, No, Maybe, No Responded.

I frequently go into TT when I get email reminders, because I’ve forgotten if I responded or not.

Thanks.
