I have been helping a friend develop a site where contractors grouped into specialty categories are submitted job requests by home owners and property managers. I was hoping to take the "easy way" out by using existing plugins like AWPCP & S2Member to quickly get a BETA version of the concept up and going to generate revenue in-order to have the capital to hire professional programers to build a more stable, custom solution. That was over a year ago. It is finally coming together and I am now doing the customization myself. The Achilles heel has always been the lack of a native and/or easily hacked plugin that would automate and filter the email alerts to the appropriate groups of contractors depending on the job category being submitted by the user. Somehow I missed this very functional, well maintained solution. It is perfect. I will note that one other issue was/is verifying the receipt of the notification emails which is crucial when charging for these notifications (i.e.: leads) and I was very surprised of the total lack of any type of email tracking and/or tracing system plugin. I own several travel online travel companies and have had to devise such systems to ensure clients received itineraries and maintain proof of such in case of dispute. So, in the interest of providing that potentially useful element to others who made need the same (as well as shameless self promotion) [ shameless self-promotion redacted ]
This plugin is the right tool if you have special requirements to send email to dynamically defined user groups. It needs some php-fiddling to get it working, but definitively much less than what the dinosaurs require.
We use this for a not for profit club and I have to say it works well and does so on the latest version of WP 3.9.1
Thank you guys you have helped a club out that needed something just like this.
Well done 10 stars! / not 5
hi hello i have a problem with the plugin before is worked fine but now wen i click notify the users about this page,and it appear a second page and i choice role-contributor then i click send its appears in blanck and it not send it, can somebody help with this problem?
Other then the one bit I found, which I am sure they will have fixed soon, it was very clean and easy to modify. I appreciate very much them defining the user meta key once which made it so I could allow for each sub site to have their own settings in regards to mass messaging and such. So a user could have one setting for one site, and a different one for another. It made my life easier and I am still modifying at the moment, but overall, a very nice plugin. Recommend it :)
Does what it says. Sends emails to all your subscribers.
I have never received such terrific support for a plugin before. Mike was emailing me directly to find and fix a bug - which he did. I was so impressed! THANK YOU for all your help!
What i was looking for.
