This plugin sends an email to all group's members when a new message, comment etc is posted to a group. The idea of the plugin is to provide information about different activities of a group directly to members' emails so that each member of a group doesn't have to login and browse to group to see if there is something new.
At the moment an email is sent to everyone when:
- a new message is created on group's messageboard
- a new message is posted on group's discussion forum
- a new page is created to group
- a new comment is posted to group
WARNING: This plugin is not fully tested, implemented in a hurry and may have some performace and security issues since it is called every time a new annotation is created somewhere in elgg. But based on quick testing and a few days of usage it seems to work fire on our site. Still, I wouldn't recommend using this on a big website before testing it more in a development environment.
Install: Just drop it into the mod directory.
Hi, I'm new here.
The feature seunaw is referring to is "Group Notifications". However the notifications are not enabled by default, and there is no option (in the web interface) for the admin or group owner to turn these notifications on for the members. The individual member has to find their way into the settings and do this for each and every group they want to receive email notifications for. It would be nice to be able to set the notifications on globally as the admin, and also the member should have the choice to turn the notifications on globally.
At least I haven't found these options yet. Am I missing something?
