Subscription

Here you can manage how users subscription should work.

Subscription

  • Allow non logged in users : Do you allow simple visitors to subscribe to your Mailing Lists? If not, only logged in users will be able to subscribe.

  • Auto-generate User's name : When a user subscribes without entering his name (if you removed the name field from the subscription form for example), AcyMailing will automatically generate a name based on his e-mail address if this option is enabled.

  • Require Confirmation : Should the user click on a confirmation link before being considered as a subscriber? If you require a confirmation, you can edit the confirmation e-mail using the button "Edit email". US and Canadian users: You have to turn ON this option to be CAN-SPAM compliant.You can use a confirmation email per subscription form. European users: you should use this option too regarding the GDPR.

  • Redirection after confirmation: Do you want the user to be redirected to a specific page after confirming his email address. Set the URL of the page you want or leave empty to be redirected to the home page of your website.

  • Allow user data modifications without identification : When your users are not identified by the system, do you allow them to modify their subscription? If you select "No", then an identification message will be sent to the user with a link to enable him to modify his subscription. If you select "Only his subscription" then his subscription will be updated but not his personal data. If you select "Yes", the subscription and the data will be updated without extra identification.

Notifications

Activate notifications

You can decide to receive notifications when users perform specific actions such as confirming their subscription or unsubscribing from a list for example.

The notifications are not sent when the related action is done from the admin part of your site (when you create an AcyMailing user, you don't want to receive a notification for example).

The available notifications are listed bellow:

Edit the notifications

The default notifications have a translated default text, but you can customize them as you want and add more information. When clicking an "Edit email" button, you'll end up on the following page:

This example is the notification sent when an AcyMailing user unsubscribes from one or more lists. The information inserted is dynamic, "Julia" for example is inserted using the shortcode {user:name}. The shortcode {user:lists} will insert the lists they chose to unsubscribe from.

You can show all the codes you can use in the notification by including {allshortcodes} in it then, with a dummy user, do the action related to this notification to receive it.
