Downloads - Asking for Email to Access a Download
The CM Download Manager supports the option to ask users who are not logged in to provide an email address before they can download a file.
If this feature is enabled, the visitor will have to input a name, last name, and a valid email address. Once these fields are filled, the download button will be enabled.
Configuring the Download
The admin and download authors can choose to require the email for non-logged in users when they create a Download using the "New Download" form.
Admin - Turning the Feature On
In the plugin setting under the Upload Page tab and the Features subsection, the admin can set this option as default:
Admin Email Notification Settings
Meanwhile, in the Logs section of the Download page tab under the plugin settings, the admin can set the email that will receive a notification email when a new user has specified his email address when downloading a file. If the user is logged in, their email will be automatically recorded from their user profile information.
