Fabrik 3.8.1 has been released. It is mostly bug fixes and feature enhancements, but does include two new plugins (push notifications, and the sequence element). As usual we strongly recommend testing the new release on a sandbox if your application is mission critical, and always do an Akeeba backup before updating.
Notification scheduled task
This plug-in is used in conjunction with the notification form plugin.
With the form plugin logged in users can sign up to observe changes in records. The notification scheduled task will then read those notification requests and email the users informing them that changes have been made.
The plug in's database tables (top)
- #_fabrk_notification - When a user signs up for notifications then an entry is stored here.
- #_fabrik_notification_event - Each time a form is edited by a user an entry is added into this table
The user can view his notifications at:
- To - Comma separated list of email addresses
- Subject - Email subject
- Message - The message to send
- Eval - Should the message be treated as PHP code
- Condition - If entered, then this PHP statement must return true for the notification email to be sent.
Options - update(top)
- Field - Select a field to update once the notification event has be handled
- Value - Either a string or PHP return statement, which will be used to update the Field.
- Eval - switch for toggling between using the update Value field as as string or PHP statement
