Follow up date and person responsible for following up.
The responsible person must be a member of the FSAS constituency to be listed. See the Activity By field.

The activity record is displayed in bold italics on the Activity tab if the Follow Up Date is in the past.


Comments and information regarding follow up and mail requests.
Use any comments with the Mail Request field to record either:

  • A request for information from the student. For example, they may want you to send out more information on the music program.
  • Information to be included in a mail merge letter to the student. For example, the time and room that you are meeting with the student and their parents.

Mail Request

Indicates whether or not:

  • mailed information is required
  • a letter is being sent using the mail merge feature of Microsoft Word.

You can use a database query or a stored procedure to list all the people who have this flag set. For example, this can be used in mail merges with Microsoft Word. The crspFutureActivityPrint stored procedure has the advantage that, in addition to retrieving key activity data, it also updates fields to indicate when the letter was printed. See Using stored procedures to retrieve Synergetic data in the Extracting data manual.

Mailed Date /
Mailed By

Date of the mailed communication and who mailed the item. These are set by a stored procedure when merging mail. See the Mail Request field.


Type of application enquiry.
