How to let the user subscribe or unsubscribe to email notification

Jump to solution

Hi,

We have this group that involves many users. But as time goes by a lot of them has been transferred to other team. We want to have a email notification that will give them a choice to subscribe or unsubscribe to our daily email notification.

Scenario:

User1 received a email notification. Below the content of the email there is a button or link that has subscribe or unsubscribe. By clicking one option we will get a data or anything that we can manipulate to subscribe/unsubscribe them.

My question is what is the best Action to use? Should we use a regular link that will forward them to a form? What we want is a easy way to do this without going through many processes.

Thank you!

Hey there - 


This is a really interesting question. 

Trying to think about it - haven't done it before - but, I suppose you could store the choice either in a list or in Active Directory as a custom field. 

It wouldn't be super difficult (though it would have to be very standardized) to do for 1 choice against ALL emails .... it would be way more difficult to say "I dont want to receive X email but I do want to receive Y email". Still doable, but wow, that'd be painstaking.

So basically .. either AD or a list of all users ... a column with Y or N in it...  every time an email is sent out, first Query the list (or AD) for the Y or N for each user, keep it, only add back into the collection if Y.... send out the email to only those users...  have a link to another form in the bottom if the user wants to "Change Preferences"... and then have that update the list or Active Directory. 

So much querying though! But still, very cool to think about. 


It would be neat if Nintex could build in a functionality like this, though. 

Cheers,

Rhia
