This is the second time this has happened to me in the last week or two – an “Email Invitees” email set to “No Reponse” rsvps doesn’t go through, says no one has that status, even if every invitee has that status!
Here’s what I did: Rather than sending an invite right away when creating an event, I created the event and then I went to send an email to Invitees (so that I could edit the subject and body text to show what I wanted).
But when I selected “No Response” under Recipients, Send message to all recipients who have RSVP’d with the following: and then clicked Send Message button, I got an error at the top of the page saying “Your message could not be sent. No one has RSVP’d with a status that matches your selection.”
But if looking at the Event Details, one can clearly see a whole lot of names in the “No Response” category of the page.
Note about different BUG that I couldn’t recreate: The first time this happened, there actually were NO names listed under No Response on an event for some reason (maybe because I had invited girls based on their unit, then deleted those units and made new same-named ones?); anyway, names didn’t show up on the event details page until they RSVPed Yes/No/Maybe!
And then when I tested it out on that event later, i.e. started an “Email Invitees” email, clicked “No Response” and then clicked “Send Message”, that time it DID get sent to the (invisible) people who had not responded yet… Which was a little unfortunate since my subject and body just said “Test”, since I didn’t think it was going to work! : )
