Emails to Petition Creators
After a new petition is created, the toolset will automatically begin sending the petition creator a series of emails. The emails in this series are triggered by the petition reaching various milestones. These emails can be updated from CMS Content (more information on updating this content is included here). The following chart explains when each email is sent.
|Email Name||("Subject Line") & Content||Sent|

* The petition is created after the user enters information into the petition creation form and clicks to save. The user is then brought to the petition review screen where they can review the information they've entered and add an image. If the user leaves before hitting the Next button on this page, the petition is not launched (and is kept as a draft in the My Campaigns page). Once the user returns and clicks Next the petition is launched and the user is brought to the petition's Just Launched page.
** Only used for organizations that have asked to have pre-moderation enabled.
