Ultimate in Cambridge - Phone tree
People who are not on email can be put in a phone tree such that
important email messages are passed on to them verbally.
Our system makes use of five reliable phone tree operators
who have daily access to email and a phone.
How a phone tree message is initiated
Whenever someone sends an email to email@example.com, if they think
it is important that the information gets phoned through to the
non-email people, then they can label the message ***PHONE TREE***
at the top and the bottom.
The phone tree operators then phone their people, as listed below.
It can also work the other way
If someone without email wants to send a message to everyone, then they
can contact their operator and give them the message verbally; the
operator can then tap in the email message.

Here is the system
The non-email people are put on FOUR lists. We have FIVE phone tree
operators. Each list is given to one operator. When an operator goes away,
he/she/it passes their list on to another operator, by sending them
an email. (David M can provide emergency cover too.)
Please inform me (David firstname.lastname@example.org) if any of the phone tree
info is out of date, especially if there is someone new who needs

non-email people at practices and make sure they are clued
in about the latest happenings. And harrass them for
not being on the net.
