Activity And GroupJive

I cannot seem to get this auto actions to send emails anymore. What should the parameters be?

I have "CB Activity - Post Notification" copied and enabled. It's type has been set to "email"

  • If I wanted all users in a group to be notified via email when someone posted on the wall, what would the "to" substitution be?
  • If I wanted to make the subject read [user] has posted on [group] is this substitution correct?

If it's a direct copy of "CB Activity - Post Notification" then you'd set To to [var2_user_id].

If I wanted to make the subject read [user] has posted on [group] is this substitution correct?

No, neither of those substitutions exist here. You'd have to use [username] for their username for example, but there is no access to what GJ group it was posted on unless the source object is available and if it is you'd use [var2_name] for group name.

Sending group post notification via email is a critical feature for my site too, though I have more questions to set this up.

But the first thing I should find out is ... Will group users be able to opt-out, if they want to, from post notifications generated from the auto action?

If you add a condition to your auto action to check the value of a field like a lot of the notification system actions do then yes. If you mean on a per group basis then no.
