has anyone a good idea how a notification tool (via email) can be developed in an easy way?
the only thing it need to do is sending out a message, once there is a change on the website.
Hope you are doing well.

Looking forward to your response.
sent you an email…
The built in workflow system already does this. Configuration is covered in the documentation.
Email us if you’d like to pay us to do it: email@example.com
thank you! but email to registered people?
Yes. Any edit made remains in a workflow pending approval. The user/group designated for approving is notified by email. They approve in the dashboard and the workflow is then completed and the edit approved/published.
I think that’s a misunderstanding – they want to inform the “clients or members” via email once the webmaster made a change, sorry for being unclear…
that’s a different story then?!
so change on website → member gets an email saying: “hey new stuff online”
Yes, a different application. In principle, attaching an email sender to a page publish event. However, there are a bunch of potential complexities that could push the cost up.
Subscribe/unsubscribe management (a legal requirement in most countries), easiest handled through a 3rd party mailing list service.
You don’t want users to be inundated with notifications while the editors are having a heavy editing session, so it will need some kind of throttling. Throttling or rate limiting may also be handled through a mailing list service.
If your customer is expecting this to be a cheap job, you could propose the alternative of a page lists with RSS enabled. Users then use an RSS application to subscribe to the feed. Or perhaps a 3rd party mailing list service can listen to the RSS and connect it to a mailing list. (Looks like Mailchimp could do this for you)
wow you are so wise!
i have had the newsletter addon from bitter, which actually is perfect but it doesn’t work on version 9. i think this would be the best solution as it is only roughly 30 people who received this.
but good point with the changes – otherwise they will get an email flood… haha
