    Hello,

    I use your plugin to notify the admin when a contributor finishes a blog post and wants to publish it. The admin then gets an email and has to review it first before publishing it.

    So I selected your trigger “Post sent for review”. Unfortunately the admin gets an email each time somebody saves a draft (so if somebody saves a draft and resumes later or saves a draft three times, the admin gets each time a mail notification, though the post is not ready yet to be published.).

    So am I missing something or how can I change that behaviour so that the admin ONLY receives a notification mail when the contributor finished his article?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    Hi Daniel,

    it’s not really possible to do, because there’s no way to tell which draft is the last one. That’s why you are getting a notification each time user saves the pending post.

    You could get an email only once when the post is saved for the first time, but it would require saving the value in post meta.

    I could write that snippet for you but it would require to purchase the support as it’s a custom feature.

    Hey Kuba,

    To be honest: I only want this simple function: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-change-status-notifier/ (This is the plugin I previously used and which worked fine.)

    I think that some other people might find this function very useful. So is there an easy way to implement it to your plugin which ensures future updates / maintenance as well?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    I see. You know what, you’re right, I think it will be worth to be implemented in the core plugin 🙂

    I’ll need a few days to add it and I’ll be releasing.

    Thanks, Kuba – sounds great!

    Best

    the change has been already implemented and tested.
