Hmm. Seems kind of bass ackwards.
If one wants to send an email out the workflow is more likely to be be:
1. Compose the email
2. Select who to send it to.
All of these steps done in the Email The Class section.
The current workflow is:
Depending on who you want to mail, you either do it all in the Email The Class section or (if the proper filter set isn't available) start with the Reunion Planner.
1. Use the Reunion Planner menu item which takes you to a page titled Reunion Planner Reports - bit of a disconnect there. To me this sounds and looks like it's for producing reports for admins to view - nothing to do with sending an email. But, scroll down a bit and there's a button called Email The Following Members. This is confusing as it's not clear if pressing will automatically send out some preformated email based on the checked options above or maybe it enables the filter options below to appear on the Email composer page where it can be selected.
So press the button and hope for the best - and suddenly we're in the email composer. Wasn't expecting THAT!
2. After getting switched to the email composer, now compose the email OR
3. Since I already composed the email earlier, I have to save this blank draft, go to the one I already composed, copy that and go back to the blank draft and paste my message into the blank draft, retitle it and save it, and delete the original.
Rather convoluted. Why can't these filter options be listed along with the other options under "Select Classmates who..." in the email composer section?
