Is there a way for my client to get an email notification when someone signs up for their list?
I can't seem to work it out but I'm sure this must be possible.
Hi Mark, welcome to the forums! You may want to look at this earlier thread for a few tips. The skinny is that it can be done if you use a third-party service like Wufoo, or roll your own notification code. Hope that helps!
Thanks for the reply Rosanne
I'll try and code something up to get the job done :)
Are there any standard ways people have been handling this?
Are there any official CM setup instructions for this?
Im very surprised to hear this isn't a feature. I wouldn't even call it a feature. Its more of a necessity.
Hi newuser123, welcome aboard. While adding notifications is certainly on the radar for us, it hasn't made the 'top of the list' just yet as:
- services like Wufoo can be used to send notifications (and have awesome documentation)
- like markthedoc above is doing, you can roll your own
- There a couple of passive ways to watch your subscriber lists grow.
I'm more than happy to add your vote for this internally, as it's still something we're interested in adding in the future . In the interim, it's worth knowing the above workarounds :)
