Notification on new file upload (6 posts)

    My users would like the possibility to be notified via e-mail whenever a new file is uploaded.

    I´ve been looking in the settings but I can´t find any "magic checkbox" for that :)

    Maybe it´s possible to solve this with an external plugin? Or maybe someone built a custom solution for this?

    Any ideas, suggestion or hints is very much appreciated.

    I'm also looking for a solution to this - does it exist in the Pro version?

    Yes, in WP-Filebase Pro you can setup E-Mail Notification so all Admins get notified if a File is uploaded by a non-admin User.

    Looking at the demo, the email notification functionality is quite undeveloped. Would be good if you could set email notifications on a permission level basis, like you can for Admins. Other than that you have to add email addresses individually for non-admins.

    A thought for the next release?

    Next update add a better notification functionality: all users that have access to the uploaded file are notified.
    There will be a global setting to toggle this.

    Is this what you need?

    That is exactly what I need.

    Imagine a small company using a private area of their WP site for internal documents, policies and newsletters. When staff upload a new version of these files, all staff need to be made aware of it. That's why I'm looking at your product as a solution and think it is the best fit out there I've come across so far.

    When is next stable update due out?
