Replying to Program Inquiries

There are two ways the program administrator can reply to contact the inquirer:

1. Click Reply on the email *Recommended Method*


1.1 When clicking on Reply  you will notice a string of letters and numbers appears (called relay email link) instead of the sender's email address. This is intentional and serves as a middleman that connect the email responses to the inquiry list on the Connector. 


1.2 It will update the inquiry status from "Un-Contacted" to "Contacted" once you have responded to the inquiry.


1.3 When the program administrator clicks on an individual inquiry, they are provided with additional information given by the inquirer based on their contacted/uncontacted status.  When an Inquirer’s status is "Uncontacted", the inquirer’s email and phone number remain hidden.


1.4 Once the inquirer has been contacted via email by responding to the email, their status moves to "Contacted" and the hidden information is made visible to the program administrator. 


Please note that you can not manage email replies or view email communications from the Inquiry tab. The Inquiry tab  is simply to keep track of the program inquiries and their statuses.

2. Click "Send an email to this contact".


When you click "Send an email to this contact", it will either:

  • Open an email reply from your desktop email app. with the relay email link appearing in the "to" field.


  • If you do not have a programmed desktop email app., you will be prompted to add one before you can reply. If you need assistance to complete this task, contact your organizations technical support.
