Mass Message to User Groups
Using this plugin with wpForo, is it possible to create user groups and as an admin send messages to specific groups, not as conversations but as announcements?
For example, I will have a forum with, say 300 users, but around 100 of these will be an owner of my specific product so when there will be updates, I would like to share links only with them, as messages, so it is also delivered to their e-mail inbox and it is also kept within the messages section within the forum for easier find later on.
Please answer as soon as possible, because my purchase of this product is specifically dependant on this feature. Thank you 🙂
I’m sorry but wpForo PM doesn’t have feature to send private messages to all membes of certain usergroup. You can select members but not usergroups. This is already in our to-do list, but it’ll be available by end of this month. I’ll update here once the new version with this feature is released.
By the end of the month is a promise good enough for me 🙂
I hope there will also be a "no-reply" feature in it so people don't start spamming each others inboxes. (will there be? or is there?)
So in this case, I will purchase the add-ons I need as soon as the problem I am having with the mobile view is solved. I'm waiting for moderation in the main forum 🙂
This feature was removed form our to-do list due to different email sending limits of hosting services. All new PMs also generate email notifications, so this kind of feature can block hosting service email sending servers or overload the hosting resources. We'll take a look on this again once we got some solution to prevent such issues.
