It's common that visitors to your profile will need to get in touch to ask you questions about a potential membership, a previous payment, or anything else.
So your Members Portal has three different options for directing your visitors to get in touch with your Organization:
Default "Contact Us" feature by Join It: When you use the default "Contact Us" feature, the visitor submits a webform that Join It's email servers deliver to the 'email' address that's designated as the 'contact' within your profile (Hint: you can view/update that email address here).
Add your own website link for your external "Contact Us" page: Instead of using the default "Contact Us" feature, you can optionally add your own URL for an external contact form. This way, if your organization already receives inquires through a default channel - you can direct this traffic there. You can add your own "Contact Us" URL on this page.
Add your own "mailto" link to open the visitor's email client: Lastly, you can construct your own "mailto" link to go behind the "Contact Us" button. A "mailto" link means that when a web visitor clicks, the web browser will open up the visitor's default email client with a new email and your specified email in the "to" field. A "mailto" link follows this structure: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org - where you replace 'email@example.com' with your own email address. You can add your "mailto" link as the "Contact Us" URL on this page.
