TOPS Mailroom Setup

Description 

Initial Setup

TOPS Mailroom is the embedded direct mail service built into TOPS [ONE]. With TOPS Mailroom things like generating coupons for your community (or a few owners), and sending messages to your homeowners, has been made easier.

Before TOPS Mailroom can be utilized throughout your communities, you must complete the registration.

If you already have a SouthData ID, it is recommended to add it to the registration to link any accounts you may have. 

Registering Communities 

Once the initial TOPS Mailroom Setup has been completed, each community will need to be registered in order to start using Mailroom features.

Before a community can use this feature, it will need to have a Remit, where payments are to be sent for coupons and statement, Return Payment Address.
