Contacts and Messages

Contacts and messages are at the heart of our service. You create contacts and assign them as recipients to your messages. Should something unexpected happen to you, we send your messages on your behalf.

Contacts

Your contact list holds names and email addresses of persons that are to be recipients of your messages. Once a contact is created, you can use the contact in one or more messages. Contacts are linked to messages, not copied. This means that if you change the name or email address for a contact, any messages the contact is assigned to will also change. All contacts are encrypted in storage.

Make sure the email addresses for your contacts are correct; otherwise, we won’t be able to send them their designated messages. See The Importance of Valid Email Addresses for more info.

Messages

When you create a message, you specify the following information:

Title

This field holds text that is displayed in your message list. It is not part of the information that is sent to your recipients. It’s used only as a message reference and is visible to Last Landing. Do not put sensitive information in this field.

Subject

Holds the subject of the email. If sent to your recipients, this field will appear in their inbox as the message subject. This field is encrypted in storage and is not accessible to Last Landing.

Recipients

Persons from your contact list to receive the message. If you want, you can assign multiple recipients to the same message. Or you can separate messages for different receipients. It's up to you.

Message text

The text of the message. This field is encrypted in storage and is not visible to Last Landing.

Days to wait

The number of days after your last acknowledgement to send the message to your assigned recipients.

If you have information that your friends need right away (come feed my pets for example), you should set this to a low value. Other information can be staggered at different intervals depending on its importance and your recipients. See How We Alert You for more.

Send count

The number of times to send the message. You can specify a value of one, two, or three. This assures that even if your recipient for some reason doesn’t see your message the first time, they will have another opportunity to do so. The timing between multiple message sends is controlled by the system.
