    Hi
    I am building an events website using The Events Calendar suite of plugins. I have a requirement for a newsletter to go with it so please can you tell me if the MailPoet would be able to do the following…

    I would like visitors to be able to receive a weekly email containing a list of all the events coming up in the categories they are interested in. They would have selected the categories during the sign up process, and would have the ability to log in and changes these preferences. I’d like this to be as automated as possible.

    Any help on this would be much appreciated. Apologies if this has already been answered elsewhere but I couldn’t find it. If it has then please just point me to the appropriate place.

    Thanks
    Phil

    Hi,

    If you create a list for each category, and then create a newsletter for each list that only displays the posts under that category, this should work.

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    Thanks for your reply. This sounds promising.

    It wouldn’t be such a good customer experience if they received lots of separate emails with just one category in each.

    Ideally I would like them to receive one email with all of the posts in all of the categories they are interested in.

    Please can you let me know if MailPoet is capable of doing this?

    Thanks
    Phil

    Phil,

    While it doesn’t do specific categories on a per-person basis, the Event Calendar Newsletter plugin does allow grabbing the events from The Events Calendar in a newsletter-friendly format:

    As far as I can see MailPoet wouldn’t include things like the event start date or location as this is in the post meta, not in the post content or title.

    I’m curious how you’re setting up the site where people can indicate their category preferences, might be a way to do this by syncing with MailChimp preferences. You could start a thread on that plugin’s support forum and see if it’s possible to add.

    This was from a while back from Event Calendar Newsletter now supports direct MailPoet integration using a shortcode:

    This was from a while back but a quick note that Event Calendar Newsletter now supports direct MailPoet integration using a shortcode:
