Using The Mail Friend Application

This application contains data on e-mailed items sent from the Ellington Database. It is a place to review the data, but there is no need to create a mailed item.

The template designer enables the Mailfriends functions. The Mail icon appears on a story within Ellington, typically at the end of the story (see image below). Once a user E-mails content, the transaction is stored here. The data captured includes: Content type, Object ID, when it was emailed, and from which site.

  1. Go to the Mail Friend Application.
