Kate from Ipsos....STOP

I know your last name but I'll be nice and not post it. I just got over thirty different emails from you....and apparently they are STILL coming. You're sending out an individual email for EVERY shop you have. Stop that is not okay. I am not interested in your shops and I'm bout to leave IPSOS completely if this keeps up with the emails like this

1JJ, it is annoying and more than one scheduler/msc is careless. The fix on our end is simple. Go into your profile and select not to receive notifications. We can still look at the boards for shops, without our inboxes being inundated.
I not only get inundated with emails despite clicking the box for no notifications BUT they also swamp me with emails for locations in states not anywhere near here. Colorado and Nevada are not just 5 minutes down the road from New York state.

This sounds like an individual scheduler not fully understanding the software to me.. I do get email from Ipsos as well, but I tend to get a single email announcing a slew of new jobs. I might get two or three emails in a day, but each tends to have different sets of of jobs advertised.

Hard work builds character and homework is good for your soul.
Most email services will allow filters. Just filter all emails from Ipsos or Kate to go directly to trash or a folder of your choice.
But then you miss out on the shops that you actually want to do.

Verify International is inundating my mailbox with requests to fill shops in Delaware. I don't live in Delaware! But every so often, they have a bank shop that appeals to me. Since I check the MSP job boards once a week, I will miss out if I don't receive the emails.

I want nothing to do do with one MSP's Papa John's shops or their Western Union shops. I do, however want their bonused car shops and $7 phone shops.

You can set up the filters to filter out key words like "Papa Johns" and "Western Union". Then you'll only miss emails about the shops you like if for some reason there's an email asking shoppers to consider both WU and $7 phone shops (which is unusual).

Cali, that's very true. Sometimes, they have the shops defined as something else (ie, QSR or bank). No way am I filtering the word "bank."

And then it gets really fun when two MSPs send out emails for Papa John's. Both know I don't do food shops, but I receive the emails (and calls) anyway.

This was not Kate misunderstanding how to use her email. Each shop she posted had an updated subject line. They all said " shop available in [insert town here]". She sent me an individual email like that for every shop she had that was in a town within 50 miles of me. That is not okay

The filter does not mean that you do not get the email. It will go to a folder of your choosing. This way, your inbox is not bombarded but you can still check the folder you set up according to the filter from time to time. It seems easier to check your mail if the emails for these multiple job offers are sent to a separate folder
Hello,

I do apologize for the number of emails that were sent out last night. I set the radius for 20 miles from the zip code. In most areas, this only accounts for a few towns or cities per shoppers, but I realize that in certain metro areas like Boston or New York, this may have been far too many. Some shoppers appreciate receiving an email with each location because it helps them visualize a route, but I do realize that others regard it as spam, and so I will be more diligent in sending out fewer emails per region in the future.

Thank you!
