CM Editor Moderation Tools (CMMOD) - Customizing Notification Emails
Customizing notification emails
Following a content contributor submitting a post for review in the usual way, the Editor Moderation Tools Plugin will begin a process of email notifications between the Editor / Moderator and the Author of the post. The emails that are sent to notify either the editor or author of submissions or updates can be modified through the plugin settings.
From the WordPress dashboard navigate to CM Editor Moderation Tools → CM Editor Moderation Tools → Notifications (tab)
Pending review Notification
The Pending review Notification is the email that is initially sent to the Moderator when a new Post is submitted for review by one of the Contributors on the website.
The Subject and Body of the email can be modified using the Visual or Text editor. Using the text editor allows for HTML emails to be used.
Shortcodes can also be employed to make the emails more dynamic and are included in the default emails that come with the plugin.
Moderator notes notification email
The second email template creates an email to send to the Author of the post following a Moderator completing a review and leaving notes.
When the Moderator has finished the review the notes they have added will be sent via email to the Author.
Like the first notification email this can be edited in both visual and html mode and can have shortcodes included for dynamic content.
Author review request notification
The third and final email template sends to the Moderator or Editor when the Author has reviewed the notes that were made on the post and has made the suggested changes.
When the Author checks off notes left by the moderator and clicks the "Ask for review" button the moderator will receive a summary of the amendments that have been made.
