Targeted email notification in Alfresco Share

Question asked by pcharsle on Sep 11, 2012

Alfresco Share already has the ability to send out email activity feeds. However we would like to be able to do the following:


1) A site manager creates a blog or a wiki with some important information that they wish to make certain users aware of
2) The site manager selects individual users or groups of users as recipients
3) The site manager sends out an email to all selected users with a message and a link to the blog or wiki


Is anyone aware of any add ons that partially or completely meet these requirements? Note that Alfresco Explorer has a feature by which 1 or more users can be selected and an email sent to them. However, this feature is hidden away and hasn't been added to Alfresco Share.


Thanks, Paul


Note: We have now implemented this functionality ourselves. We create a custom email content type with a custom action to send the email.
