Support » Plugin: MailPoet Newsletters (Previous) » I need quarterly, semi-annual and annual digest mail

    Hello
    I like MailPoet very much, but it has only two failings, which make it almost useless for me:
    1- I need to create quarterly, semi-annual and annual newsletters for my website, but it only has daily, weekly and monthly digest modes. Is there any way I can use its with quarterly or semi-annual digest mode?

    2- The template designer makes us drag-and-drop some items with mouse. It has no way to be done with keyboard. This is far from accessibility standards, which are very well contrived by WordPress. I cannot use the template designer, because I am blind and I cannot use my mouse.

    Now, please tell me if there is any way I can use Mailpoet with quarterly or semi-annual digest mode.
    Thank you

  • Hi,

    1. If you set the newsletter to go out X days after subscription, you can effectively send out quarterly (every 90 days, for example.)

    2. Very sorry about that, but we are definitely aware of this issue and will be trying to find a solution in the future.

    Dear MailPoet
    Thank you for the reply.
    > 1. If you set the newsletter to go out X days after subscription, you can effectively send out quarterly (every 90 days, for example.)

    What do you mean exactly? I have not seen any option for sending the newsletter 90 days after subscription. Is it a new feature? I need to send the digest mail every 90 days, not just 90 days after subscription. Is Mail poet really able to send the newsletter every 90 days automatically? for example, 4 times a year?

    Well, I believe the solution is easy. I just want a text editor in which I can copy/paste a few shortcodes and HTML tags so to design the
    template. I think making a textual template is far easier than visual designer. I need to write a template like this:

    <html dir=”rtl”>
    <image src=”http://www.irannopendar.com/mylogo.jpg”&gt;
    Dear [First Name] [Last Name]
    Here is the latest news published on our website in the last quarter:

    For larger websites, it will be fantastic if each user will be able to design their own digest template, select their own desired categories, and customize their own desired freequency. For instance, the first user likes to receive the latest posts of Category A and Category B every week, but the second user likes to receive the recent posts from Category C and Category D every month. The 3rd user likes to receive only the recent posts of a certain author. The 4th user likes to receive only the posts that contain a certain keyword. The 5th user likes to enjoy a combination of all. I believe, a customizable alert system is the biggest feature WordPress lacks.

    Hi,

    If you create a new newsletter with the option “after joining X list” you can choose how many days later the newsletter will go out.

    Unfortunately there is no real way to send them every 90 days – you’ll need to send them out X days from subscription.

    Thanks for your feedback, we are definitely looking for ways to improve accessibility.

    Thanks!
