Automated Competion Processs

Postby JamesHusband » 9:23am, Sat 07 Jun, 2014

Hi all,

So I have phplist version 3.0.5 installed on our hotel website and use it for 2 purposes, the first being a newsletter and the second for a monthly competition (both in separate lists).

What I would like to do is set up some kind of automation with the month compo as obviously at the moment we must pick a winner randomly ourselves from the "comp list"..

I will break down the process that I would like to happen into stages:

1: A 'monthly' export of the 'Comp list' CSV file with just names and emails
2: Use another piece of software to randomly pick a winner
3: Email the winner with a "Congratulations Email"
4: Email the winners details to the main hotel email


I hope this makes sense, any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am also open to suggestions for an alternative platform for the competition as I know that PHP List primary use if for Newsletters so what I am trying to achieve may not even be possible!

Cheers! :?:
