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.

OK, I can probably work with that with a link in the e-mail notification to the Activity wall. That's an easy way for the user to interact.
I'm with you in terms of giving reason to engage on the site. Just frustrated we can't get web notifications working in Chrome on a Mac.

Just an idea, maybe you guys could make a downloadable Joomla install with CB configured to give GJ notifications as you envisioned them working. That may save a lot of Q&A time?

But I think I can make this work. Thank you!!

We already did with CB Quickstart. The notifications are converted to CB Activity notifications, but if you don't want to use CB Quickstart you can enable the respective system actions in CB Auto Actions > System Actions.

Spamming people with emails about activity is not recommended. Statistically it doesn't get them engaged and often just annoys them causing them to mark the domain as spam and blacklisting you on major email providers. Your site itself should be well designed to keep people engaged and want to come back. Weekly newsletter of some kind should be the extent of the emails you send out. There are plans for CB Activity to be able to send a notification "digest" in a future release to let them know what they're missing, but that's not implemented yet. We also plan to eventually support push notifications.
