Add email notifications when private items are added/updated in a basket

Reported by Walter McGinnis | June 9th, 2009 @ 01:15 PM | in 1.3 (closed)

As an alternative to authenticated RSS:

  • add a basket setting if privacy controls are enabled for a basket, basket admins may set email notifications when a new item item is added or an item is edited in a basket to "at least a" basket member, moderator, basket admin, or "do not email" for no notifications - the default if privacy is enabled is basket member

  • on new/edit forms add "skip notifications" to override this setting on an item by item basis (only for private items, obviously, js probably necessary to handle when form element for privacy is changed, placed just above "save" button probably)

  • add code to honor the combination of settings and trigger emails to appropriate users

    Some more notes:

    • There should also be two additional settings in basket settings; show private item title in email notifications (default yes) and show private item short summary in email notification (default no). The outgoing email should then honor these settings.

    • The outgoing email should include link to the private version of the item and have a "Do not reply" statement.
