How to set up magazine style subscriptions

This procedure is for organizations wishing to track magazine/publication issues and manage subscribers. This procedure requires four set up steps:

  1. Magazine/Publication
  2. Issues
  3. Current Issue
  4. Subscription Type

Notes:

  • Payment Forms = publication
  • Subscription Issue = individual issue of the publication
  • Payment Options = types of subscriptions (1 year, 2 year)

Subscribers are linked to the magazine when they fill in the web based form and are managed for mail outs.
