MembersFirst Holiday Help Center

 
We're here to support you!… And that's why we've created this "Holiday Help Center" where you can find everything you need in one place. If you have questions about these or other topics, don't hesitate to reach out to your Client Services Manager.

 

Whether you offer take-home orders every holiday season or plan to for the first time this year, your MembersFirst website can help you take the entire ordering process online. There are options anywhere from a simple request form, to a more robust option with automated price calculations.
 
 
Due to increased demand, limited staff, or a combination of these, you may be looking to limit orders per pick-up day/time. To do so, first create your take-home form, then use MembersFirst Enhanced Registrations to create an event (or daily events) with time slots. Link to your form from the event's post-registration "Thank You" page, as well as the email confirmation. Finally, direct members to access online orders by registering through the website calendar.
 
Configure events with time slots, member-only registrations, waitlists, and even a registrant "lottery" to keep things fair when seating is limited.
 

Consolidated (and visually appealing!) communication is the best way to keep your members in the loop this holiday season. Your MembersFirst Email Builder gives you the ability to send a "Holiday Newsletter" so members can scroll and find everything they need in one place. In addition, your pre-built Holiday Email Templates are a time-saving solution for any quick updates or reminders you need to send.

You can also send automated emails a specified number of days (1 week, 2 days, 1 day, etc.) before your event and dining reservations. These reminders can include special instructions, and any other information members and guests should know. If this information changes over time, you can easily update the message. In addition, if your Club has the MembersFirst Mobile App, you can include a Push Notification sent at the same time as your emailed reminder.

As the seasons change, your dining configuration may need to be updated. Whether you are closing your outdoor dining venues, utilizing indoor "flex spaces" to accommodate additional tables, or adjusting your headcount allowance, you will want to make sure your Dining Reservations reflect the Club's current offerings.
