Welcome emails can be sent from a student, family or employee's profile. You can use these emails to welcome the person to your company and provide them with key information.
Each type of recipient has a separate template that can be customized by following the instructions here: Customizing Notification Templates.
To send a welcome email to a person, check the "Send Welcome Email" box on the person's profile. Once sent the date that the welcome email was last sent will be displayed under the checkbox so that you won't resend a welcome email by accident.
