ALO EasyMail Newsletter
Custom user meta fields and "who to send" filter option (2 posts)

    Good afternoon Eventualo,

    This time I haven't got a new patch; instead, I've got a feature request :).

    I would like to add two new features to your plugin:
    1) Custom user meta fields. In order to request user birth date, a comment or something else.
    2) A special feature to the mailing lists; something that responds to this question: when would you like to send this Newsletter? I would like to send it every time that user meta field "date_of_birth" === CURR_DATE, or I would like to send it now if "likes_cheese" === TRUE (or both!).

    Can you see the potential of such feature? :)

    I suppose that the first option should be added to the "options" section (maybe checking if this must be a required field or not). The last one could be set when we create the list of recipients or set as "Filter subscribers according to custom fields...", but I'm not sure at all.

    The problem is that I'm not sure where to start "playing" without breaking any current feature. Because of that I'm writing here, in order to get some advice from eventualo or other developers in that forum to let this done.

    Keep waiting your response ;).

    Hi eqhes.
    The 2 things (subscriber custom fields + filter option according to custom fields) are good ideas, and some time ago someone suggested them too.
    A lot of people ask me about custom fields, but I'm sorry, I'm very busy and so I have no time to analyse the issue and to develop all the code...
    If you like, for now I can suggest you this forum post: http://www.eventualo.net/forum/topic/427 where someone shared the code he wrote to add a last-name field.
