Community OS

Automate Reminders

Set-up a system of sending automated reminders to users who haven't completed the community onboarding process.


Here's an example onboarding flow and how you could automate some of the workflows:

  • A new member has signed up with their email
  • On signup, members get a Welcome email which guides them on next steps (could include posting an introduction on Slack) and prompts them to fill out an onboarding form (Typeform is a great tool for this)
  • If you are using Mailerlite for example, you use their automation tab to trigger an email on a successful sign-up.
  • Use Zapier to capture sign-ups from Mailerlite (or any other sign-up tool) on Airtable.
  • Once done, you can use Zapier to update the Airtable record if the user has filled out the onboarding form by creating a Typeform <> Airtable zap.
  • For users, who haven't filled out the forms, set-up a reminder email that gets triggered after 3-5 days of signing up.
  • Alternatively, you could use onboarding bots like Greetbot on Slack to set up Day 1, Day 3 prompts to onboard the users
  • Couple of things you could include to nudge them towards completing the onboarding flow
  • Reminder about what are they missing out (include top posts/discussions or webinars they they missed)
  • Mention any upcoming group events they could unlock which needs them to complete the onboarding forms
