    • Email address - Optional, select either a user element, or a simple text element which contains and email address. If selected, the plugin will send a notification email to the email associated with each updated row. The plugin will automatically detect whether you have selected a user element (in which case it will look up the email from jos_users) or a simple element containing the literal email as text.
    • Or email to - alternatively enter an email address here - takes precedence over the 'Email address' option
    • Email subject - Optional, if you selected an Email Address above, you must specify the subject for the notification email. You can use normal {tablename___elementname} placeholders.
