Edit Flow
Notifications depending on post status and metadata (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I am using Edit Flow to create an editorial process for my company's three blogs. I am trying to keep it as basic as possible. I have two scenarios that I need to trigger notifications to a specific people:

    1) When a post is submitted for approval, I need the editors to be notified. I will use metadata to insert two check boxes (one for each of our two editing stages). When an editor has done their part, they will tick their check box. When both check boxes are ticked...

    2) I need to be notified for finally approval and scheduling.

    So, I need the basic notification set up for editors when the status changes to Pending and I need something that will check the status of the two check boxes whenever a post is saved and notify me when they are both ticked.

    The Edit Flow site lays out how to notify based on status, but how do I notify based on the status of the check boxes? Is it possible?

    Thanks!

    Notifying based on checkboxes should be possible, but requires a bit more code. I've filed an issue to create a code snippet when I have a moment.

    Alternatively, you could do it entirely with post statuses. You could create the following:

    1. In-progress - Writer is creating
    2. Needs Edit - Ready for the first edit
    3. Second Edit - Ready for the second edit
    4. Needs Approval - Ready for your approval and scheduling

    In fact, if I were you, I'd probably take this approach instead as it's a bit more flexible and less likely to break.
