Notification form plugin

  • Introduction(top)


    This plugin works in conjunction with the cron notification plug-in. It enables users to subscribe to changes to the current form's record. When the record is updated the user is notified by email via the cron notification plug-in of the changes.

    It will add a 'notify me' checkbox to the form, which the user can check if they wish to be notified of updates to the current record.

    Options(top)
