    Hello Kimberly! No, they will not. Only those who are part of the E-list when a message goes out will receive it.

    Are topics searchable in e-lists? For example, can a member or the ASA login and search topics to re-post? I find typically members ask the same question year after year so I want an easy to way to search previous topics and then re-share them.

    Hello Courtney! Topics in an E-List are not searchable. If that's a feature you're interested in, you may prefer utilizing the Forums. If you have questions about that or setting them up, please feel free to reach out to our Help Team!

    You can search for e-list conversations that contain certain words!

    I'm not sure what sort of search function is used, e.g. if using quotation marks will search for words in order--e.g. does a search for "2018 Meeting" return all messages that include the phrase "2018 meeting", all messages containing both words, or all messages containing either word?

    Thanks for that, Jen! And apologies, Courtney, I misunderstood that as a question about your E-List messages being searchable in the Site Search. As Jen pointed out, you can utilize the "Search Messages" function in the E-List area.

    In regard to using quotations for a search, in my testing, those don't work at all unless your criteria had quotations in the actual message. Searching "2018 Meeting" works, but searching " "2018 Meeting" " with the quotations included as the search does not work unless that is part of your message. I hope that provides better clarity for everyone!

    I am looking for an option for members to subscribe themselves to an E-list, but I'm not seeing that in the setup anywhere. We would like to have an option for a subset of our membership to be able to self-subscribe. Is there an E-list 'landing page' for members where they can see directions for how to subscribe or for us to link to as a menu item?

    Hey there Carolyn! Members can subscribe to any E-List they have permission to when they login and go to their Profile. Underneath the "My Features" tab is where they'll find E-Lists, and be able to subscribe as they so choose. While you cannot link directly to "My Features" or "E-Lists", you can provide links to "My Profile" so they can get there. I hope that helps!

    Hi there - almost exactly 2 years ago (before we shifted to the new platform) I posted a query asking if/when a digest option would be available, and Kinsey quickly responded at the time that it was in the product roadmap. I don't see anything elist related in the current version of the roadmap so I thought I'd reiterate my plea for a digest/daily summary option. When we ask our members why they don't subscribe or why they unsubscribe, email volume and inability to see messages in a digest format is number one complaint. Please consider this again. Many thanks.

    Hello Emmi! If you haven't already (and I'm sure you have!), please submit that feedback here. I haven't heard any news in regard to a digest feature, but the feedback will go directly to our Product Managers. The more we hear from folks like you, the better tuned in we are to you and your members' needs!

    Are lapsed members automatically blocked from participating in e-lists?  If not, what is the easiest way to remove them.

    Thanks, Sara

    Hey there Sara! Lapsed Members are automatically blocked from participation in the E-List. Once they renew and are Active again, they'll be all set to participate again.
