Position Report Setup
How do you send in a Position Report?
I did not want to create yet another Position Report template for sending in a report. I
felt that it was too error prone. To this end I set up VentureFarther to accept existing position
report formats with integration with Airmail being the first. So, if you are
used to Airmail position reporting then go to the normal "Position Report" menu item.
On the right there is a set of tabs, one of them is "Yotreps" (not sure but I have not
been able to get to that site so it might be down?). In the "Send To" edit field just paste in
the VentureFarther reporting email address "firstname.lastname@example.org".
p.s. You also need to make sure in your VentureFarther profile that your email address that you are sending the report from is there. If you have more than one email address there are now 2 places to enter them. VentureFarther will accept a position report from either address. If a report is sent in from an email address that is not registered it will be rejected.
How can I "track" a member and get an email sent to me when they report?
Step 1 Become a member, which is free and can be done here. (already a member, then sign in and skip to step 2)
Step 2 Request to "track" the member here.
What if you send in a Position Report in a way VentureFarther does not accept?
Send me an email with the report and your provider. I will look at how to add that format to the VentureFarther inbound email processing engine.
