With Streams’ social media tools, readers can subscribe to your Stream to receive emails each time you update — and you can even invite them to subscribe. This article will cover three things:

  • How to enable subscriptions
  • How to subscribe to a Stream
  • How to invite others to subscribe to your Stream

To enable subscriptions

  1. Go to your S-Drive Dashboard, choose the Stream you’d like for users to subscribe to, and click Customize Theme.
  2. In the theme customization window, click Settings.
  3. Now simply check the box next to Enable E-mail Subscriptions.

  1. Now, when a visitor looks at one of your Stream updates, they’ll see the Subscribe button below.

To subscribe to a Stream

  1. When a visitor clicks the Subscribe button below a Stream update, a dialog will appear asking for their email address.

  1. The visitor will need to enter their email address, click Subscribe, and then check their email inbox for a confirmation link.
  2. Once the visitor clicks the confirmation link, they’ll get an email notification each time the Stream is updated!

To invite users to subscribe to a Stream

  1. Go to your S-Drive Dashboard and click Invite Subscribers on the right.

  1. Enter the email addresses of each person you would like to invite to your Stream in the first box.
  2. Personalize your message to everybody in the second box, or send the default message without personalizing it. But seriously, just tweak this text a little bit for the benefit of these people that you know.
  3. Click Send! Now all those people will get an email asking them to subscribe to your Stream, which they will of course do.
