Dispatch is an email creation and distribution app created by the UI's OneIT group. Dispatch can be used to create and send e-newsletters, one-off messages, and event promotion emails to audiences on campus or off.
We can help you get set up on Dispatch. See the Dispatch User Tutorial.
CLAS Strategic Communications and CLAS Web Services, as well as the central UI Office of Strategic Communication, would like Dispatch to be used throughout the college as units' primary email platform.
Advantages of using Dispatch, as opposed to commercial email services or Outlook, are that it is free, automatically brand-compliant, gets past spam filters more easily (applicable when sending external emails), and provides decent analytics.
