Auto-Notifications Question

    Heya,

    I’m considering using BuddyPress for a client and (while I’m downloading it now) I had a question regarding the setup of auto-notifications. The primary purpose of the press we’d be creating is to help users to find my client based on state (there is a representative from each state that would sign up).

    Is it possible to have the new user action A.) Collect the State information of the new user, and then B.) Send a notification of the new user to the appropriate State’s representative via email? This would then allow the State’s Rep to add them as a friend and contact them through the press. The reason I ask is I don’t expect all the rep’s to check the site daily and would like to ensure new users aren’t ignored.

    Thanks in advance for any help/thoughts/suggestions.

    I’d go about this by making State a required profile field, and by hooking into the wpmu_activate_user action (triggers once a user *activates* their account). Depends on what exactly you want to do with regards to your notifications, but this should give you a starting place.

    Paul is on point on this one. That’s exactly how I would do it as well. :thumbup:

    That sounds about like what I was looking for. Good Idea. Thanks.
