Remind Users to come back?

edited April 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

Hi all,

Does Vanilla know a way or a plugin to remind Users to check back again.. for example 3 months after inactivity?

I'mean there is a table row "DateLastActive" and i can create a Newsletter-List of those, but just asking.

Thanx for info.

    Good idea if you can let users toggle this off

    This would be trivial with a cron system.

    exactly what i thought. how hard would it be to extract list. and cron a batch file to send form letter.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Sorry. Does that mean such a plugin would be redundant or are you suggesting it's easy to develop such a plugin? I am technologically challenged.

    I have something ready like this, based on several rules and with a e-mail template editor. :)

    We are currently rebuilding VanillaSkins.com, i inform you soon about it.

    For some reason, I was thinking about the dev team mentioning implementing cron. I completely forgot about this wonderful plugin!

    The Cron plugin needs some refinement, but it works and it can easily be used by other plugins and applications. In fact, I even suggested the Vanilla Team to use it in their official releases. A bit of pride never hurts. :D

    If you and others are willing to make a pledge to me that you will honor via paypal, I could write up a plugin (assuming you don't want to go via the cron route and selectively mail when you want based on months since lastactivity date) for you and the community and post it in the add-ons section. But I have a feeling the desire to pledge a monetary amount is beyond the desire of those who want someone to spend hours writing something for the for free.
