Groups Notifications


Download

Download the free Groups Notifications WordPress plugin.

This plugin is an extension to Groups and adds notification features:

  • notify the site admin when a user has joined a group
  • notify the site admin when a user has left a group
  • notify the user after joining a group
  • notify the user after leaving a group


The plugin adds a Notifications menu item to the Groups menu where the notification settings can be adjusted as desired. All notifications are turned off by default and must be enabled individually.



Each notification allows to set a customized subject and message text in HTML format.



More details on the settings are explained in the Documentation.

Groups can be installed from your WordPress dashboard and the latest version is also available on WordPress.

  • Love the plugin – just installed it today and am loving what I see so far. Am confused though, when d/l through WordPress – the ver. is 1.3.6, on the website 1.0.1. The version on the website (here) seems to have the Notifications feature which the installed version does not? Which version is the latest?

    Also having an issue with join and leave buttons for the groups being displayed. And no ‘leave buttons’ are displayed. Viewable at http://www.lcag.info/links/advocacy-groups/

    Thanks for your support, time and energy!

    The code on the page is shown below. What am I doing wrong?

    [Edit: Your code on pastebin]

    • Hi RevKev, these are two different plugins, the higher version is that of the Groups plugin and 1.0.1 is that of the Groups Notifications extension.
      Regarding your code (which looks ok) and the buttons, the button to leave a group would only be displayed when the user is a member of a group.

    I am planning on purchasing your Groups Integration for WooCommerce and installing it with Groups Notifications.

    Does the Groups Notifications plugin have the ability to let users know there group membership is going to expire in a certain time period (e.g.: a plain text email is sent saying your group membership will expire in two weeks), to give them one last chance to purchase an item and reactivate there group membership.

    • No but it could be used (or something derived) that could do that. Shouldn’t be too hard either, a cron job checking the time left and sending out reminders to renew. But I think that would actually be a job that the WooCommerce Subscriptions plugin should do, i.e. send out reminders that a subscription is about to end. Or both …

    Hello again,

    I just installed groups notifications, but i do not get noticed when a user is assigned to a group by using the [groups_join group="X"] button/short code.

    I checked: Send notifications for the Registered group and Notify when a user has joined a group.

    The test mail works and arrives. Also the user is assigned to the group without problems. But i get no notification mail when this user is assigned to the group…What could be the case?

    thanks in advance for your reply

    • Hi Arjen,

      If the test email works but the notifications don’t, it might be because the notification emails end up in the spam/junk folder. That’s the first thing I would check, otherwise there might be an issue related to the versions you are using – make sure to use the latest version of the Groups plugin.

      I hope that helps, let me know otherwise please.

  • Hi,
    I have a problem since ~2 months with this plugin : every time, all settings a reseted by default.
    Do you any idea why ?
    It is a hell :/

    Thank you.

    • Do you have any other plugins that can eliminate options from the wp_options table? The plugin itself doesn’t reset its options by itself so that would be the first thing to check.

      • Hi,
        I have to check but do you have a technic to track this please ?

        I have installed the plugin CloudFlare, do you think it is related ?

        • It shouldn’t be related but try disabling caching on the admin side, go to Groups > Notifications, check your settings and save. Then visit the page again to make sure that your changes have been recorded.
