Have updates show up inside emails
Have updates show up in an email.
This has been added! Admins can now find an option in their Company Settings called “Email Notification Format” which has the option for including the full status report in the email notifications.
One of the things we've been struggling with is the balance between convenience for readers vs value for admins/founders. We think one of the most valuable parts of Reportedly is the insight into engagement that we're able to give admins/founders. By requiring that subscribers read the reports on Reportedly, we're able to accurately determine who's read it. With this data, admins/founders can see which of their subscribers/investors/advisors/etc are actively engaged with their company and which aren't.
We've been looking at ways of tracking reads via email but it is really inaccurate and it is getting worse as email clients work to protect the privacy of their users.
One approach we've been thinking about is giving admins/founders the option of having full reports sent via email with the caveat that Reportedly won't be able to track/report those reads. In other words, we let the admins/founders decide which trade-off they'd like to make.
I'm curious to know what everybody thinks about this approach.
