Support » Plugin: PTA Volunteer Sign Up Sheets » Template tag for volunteer email?

  • Resolved the_webscaper


    Hi Stephen,

    One of our event chairs is asking if it’s possible for the confirmation email that she receives (the copy of the one the volunteer receives) could have the volunteer’s phone number and email address. The event chair doesn’t have access to the back end of the site to look up email/phone, so would like for the confirmation to include this information.

    Is this currently possible? Would it be possible, if not?

    Thanks in advance!

    There is already a tag for phone, which shows the volunteer’s phone #.

    There is currently no tag for the volunteer’s email. However, if you do NOT have the option checked that says “Separate CC/BCC to individual TO emails?”, then the chairs will be CC’d the confirmation email, and they can look at the email headers to get the “to” email address, which will be the email of the volunteer who signed up.

    The newest version of the plugin has some filter hooks for the find and replace arrays that are used on the email templates. Those were added so that we could add some custom template tags for a very large custom extension I developed for a non-profit organization this summer. So, if you have someone who knows even a little bit of PHP, and is familiar with how WordPress action & filter hooks work, they could easily create a little code snippet to add any additional template tags you want and send back the replacement info. It’s all in the emails class file of the plugin.

    Otherwise, this is something you could add to the feature requests section of the support forum on my own site, as there is currently no other way to add that without some additional programming.
