  • Mass E-Mail Users Awaiting Confirmation

    Hi,

    Is there a way to add a "Mass E-Mail Users Awaiting Confirmation"?
    That way you can E-Mail them all at once instead of one at a time?

    This would be really useful for some of us.

    thanks
    Andy Knifel

    You can already.

    Admin Control Panel > Users > Send Email to Users > Write the email and select the usergroup you want to email. - In this case the users waiting email confirmation. You can include activaction codes & link & other variables.

      Hi Floris,

      Yes, I understand. I'd like to make it a quick on the left side.

      Scott MacVicar did something like that for vB2.
      I'm just not good enough with PHP to convert it.

      Thanks for the quick responce, I hope you can help.

          That is for version 2.

            That is correct. I'm not smart enough to convert it to version 3.01.
            That is exactly what I am talking about though.

              You don't need to convert it.

              It is 1 click from the left menu, then select the usergroup & write email.
              The email can just hold the variables as suggested in the help text.

              In the message, you may use $userid, $username, $email, $activateid, and $activatelink.

              $activateid will be the activation number the user must use to activate his/her account. $activatelink will be the URL that a user needs to visit to be activated. Note: These will only be defined to users in the "Users Awaiting Email Confirmation" group.

                I do that all the time. :-)

                I need to specifically resend the registration E-Mail from when they signed up!

                A bulk generic message is very easy.

                  If you really want to convert the version 2 hack to version 3, you should ask on vBulletin.org which is the hacking community. Here I can only assist you with default vBulletin features/options & template code changes.

                  Copy the phrase from the welcome email, put it in a .txt file and replace any variable with the variable you Can use in the mass emai form. And each time you need to mass email the validation users, copy/paste it.

                    I did! no one thought it was important enough to waste their time.

                    I'd even pay a reasonable price for the hack.

                    I contacted Scott MacVicar via PM, no reponce.
                    I guess he's been very busy.

                      I am sorry the community of vBulletin.org didn't reply to your question. But I can't do it here either. Scott is indeed very busy to also work on custom hacks.
                      But besides that, as the screenshot shows, it is a default feature. Just not with pre-set text.

                        Sorry for sounding stupid Floris and thanks for helping...

                        But how would I mass E-Mail users without changing group prefs?

                        I don't want the whole bord to get them.
                        Just the 20 or 50 users that never retruned the E-Mail.
                        That way I can figure out which accounts ARE bogus.

                          See the attached image, all usergroups are unchecked, except the usergroup 'waiting email validation'. If you email them all, the ones with fake emails will bounce.

                            If I did it correctly, this is what I got with the current batch:

                            Emailing
                            Showing Users 1 to 6 of 6

                            1584 - moosryan .... Emailing Okay
                            1573 - squarebeat .... Emailing Okay
                            1569 - Brand New Day .... Emailing Okay
                            1566 - sandokan68 .... Emailing Okay
                            1564 - lucas123 .... Emailing Okay
                            1517 - Matthew .... Emailing Okay

                              You can check with the usergroup manager to see how many users are in the emails validation usergroup.
