To edit an existing post on your committee or dept page, the first essential step is to log in as a user. 

There are two ways to update existing post.

 

Approach 1: Go to the Post, Then Edit

In this approach, once logged in, go to the information you want to edit. You'll see on upper right of that information, a pencil icon for editing. Click on the pencil. Then you'll see a tab for "Edit". Make your edits. Then Save. Your changes are now made and will appear in all the places they were found before.

The town is not able to provide "shutesbury.org" email addresses for volunteers. For the most part these are limited to committees as a whole.

We recommended that volunteers have a separate email address for their town business, separate from their personal email address. The following is the format suggested.

Recommended email for volunteers:  shutesbury.firstname.lastname@gmail.com
example - shutesbury.john.doe@gmail.com

How to forward emails from committee accounts to individual members

It is a two-step process to have emails sent from a committee account (committee@shutesbury.org) and get forwarded to individual members. The key is creating a filter rather than forwarding (forwarding only lets one email be selected at a time whereas multiple filters can be created)

1. Step 1: First you have to add a forwarding address - the individual's email. The person, needs to accept the forward after you've initiated the request. This allows the connection between the two accounts.
