    Hi there,

    Firstly, thanks for the great free version of the BNFW plugin. VERY much appreciated.

    I was wondering if this scenario was possible?

    I want to send a notification email to the post author, but only if a checkbox is checked.

    I have a CPT called ‘house’ and some custom fields in that CPT. One of the fields is called ‘vendor-update’. As you can imagine this is a Real Estate site and I’m wanting to send an update to the vendor of the property (who is the author of the post), but only IF the Real Estate Agent has updated the post in a way that is meaningful to the vendor.

    So my idea is to add a checkbox under the ‘vendor-update’ field and ONLY if this is checked, would the post update notification email be sent out.

    So.. is this possible with your plugin?

    Thanks.

    Hi @njwrigley,
    Thanks for your message.

    Yes, you should be able to do this with the Custom Fields add-on.
    Once your checkbox has been created, you can create a notification for ‘CUSTOM POST TYPE’ – Custom Field Updated and then choose only to send this to the post author when this custom field changes.

    Hope this helps and if you like the plugin and the support, please feel free to leave an honest review.

    Thanks,
    Jack

    Hi there.

    Thanks for the swift reply.

    I notice that you specify that custom fields from these:
    Advanced Custom Fields Pro
    Advanced Custom Fields (Free)
    WordPress’s own, default custom fields

    will work.

    I’m using Toolset to do this job. Do you know if that will work?

    Thanks.

    Hi @njwrigley,

    Almost! Compatibility with Toolset Types and Meta Box are currently being added to the Custom Fields add-on this month.

    Thanks,

    Hi there Jack.

    Thanks…

    Just out of interest, I co-run a podcast here:

    I’m wondering if you’d like to come on it! If you do perhaps you could reach out with the contact form and we’ll take this put of wp.org
