I'm creating a scheduled reminder email that is sent to members six weeks before their membership expires. I want the email to link to the membership page with the contact details of the organisation filled in.

I have managed to do this successfully for individuals by using the following link in the email:


However, this doesn't work for organisations. It only fills in the email address of the organisation but not the organisation's name, address and postcode.

I presume that this is something to do with the fact that the organisation membership form is filled out on behalf of the organisation.

Is there a way I can change this link to ensure that the organisation's full details are filled in when the user clicks on the link?

I am using CiviCRM 4.6.10 on Drupal 7.41.


I have a partial answer to this question. The link above works fine, but you have to ensure that the organisation's membership is inherited by staff.

To do this you need to edit the membership type and set 'Relationship Type' to 'Employer of' (not 'Employee of' which is what I had previously).

Once this is done a renewal reminder will be sent to the organisation's email address and the email address of the member of staff who subscribed on behalf of the organisation.

The link in the email that is sent to the member of staff works correctly. However, the link in the email sent to the organisation doesn't work unfortunately.
