In addition to any emails you send participants, they also receive two other kinds of emails from MindMixer:
- notices when someone comments on their ideas or comments (must opt-in)
- weekly activity reports (can include closing topics, upcoming topics, updated idea statuses, comments on instant polls and ideas, recent site images, most active ideas, and recently submitted ideas - see picture below); or topic highlight (includes a topic that is available to but so far unanswered by the recipient).
The purpose of the weekly emails, which go out on Tuesdays, is to keep your participants engaged throughout the lifecycle of your project. Over time, you'll notice a spike in your site's traffic every Tuesday as a result of these weekly emails.
