Hi,

It would be nice to be able to extend that to add by default notifications when publishing something.

Case usage:

A) I create a new post, I'm automatically having a notification on it.
B) I ask for membership on a project, I'm having notifications on it (new articles, forums...)

What do you think ?

Hi Xavier

This extension handles collaboration rules, not subtree notification rules.

Maybe the following extension is closer to what you're looking for: http://ez.no/community/contribs/w...cen_create_subtree_notification_rule. Options for creator and owner were added this week in svn, so that would cover A.

Concerning B: a similar workflow event on the membership post register trigger could do this, but we need to add another algorithm to get the node to add notification rules for (the project, not the user group we're joining). Just going up in the tree until we find a project should work.

Ideally, the user should have a way to choose if he wants to get those subtree notifications automatically added or not. The mentioned workflow event type currently does not have some way to do this, but maybe we can handle this with a user preference?

Hi, Great news.

Is this going to be added here on these forums ?

Hi Xavier

The problem here is that I think that we should give the user a choice, but the current workflow event doesn't handle this. For new forum replies we also need to use the parent (forum topic) instead of the reply to add subtree notification rules for.

Any suggestions on how to do this?
