What it is like to send a message to a coach using our Messaging System
How a coach receives that message
What happens when a coach clicks on my message-embedded link or replies to my message
Here is an example of an introductory email between Harry Hart (test account) and Coach Jordan Nies (test coach of Princeton University). Harry sends the email from his SportsRecruits profile and Coach Nies receives it like an ordinary email in his inbox. When Coach Nies opens the email, he can click the link to Harry's profile and check out his video.
Watch as Harry's profile updates this information for him in real time!
First, Harry begins initiating contact with a message to Princeton.
After Harry hits "send," the message hits Coach Nies's inbox right away! Notice how the personalized email is sent straight to his regular email inbox, and appears as a regular email would.
When Coach Nies opens his inbox, he can see the subject: first and last name, graduation year, and the email. You can see the link to Harry's profile is automatically embedded at the bottom of the email!
Similar to any other messaging system, please note there is no way to recall a message after it's sent.
How a coach receives your message
What Happens When a Coach Clicks My Embedded Message Link or Replies to My Email?
When Coach Nie's clicks Harry's embedded link he will be taken directly to Harry's profile! The coach does not have to log in or enter any information, so it is quick and convenient for them. Harry’s athletic and academic information is in one place, including graduation year, club team, test scores, and highlight videos! Once Coach Nies clicks on this link, Harry is notified in real-time that the Princeton Coach viewed his profile.
Coach Nies can also reply directly to the email to send a message back to Harry's SportsRecruits messaging system.
