Re: The Recipes Release

Hey Ted, looking forward to playing with recipes. Do you know if the release would have inadvertently impacted our permissions groups. We have one group who lost the ability to edit member posts in the forum they were assigned to. I had to go back and give them the Moderate Content permission. Thanks.

Hi Augie, The Recipes release shouldn't have impacted your forum permissions in any way. Is it possible that another administrator made the permission change? Regards, Brian

Hi Brian, the only recent change that was made to this permission circle was that some members were removed. No permissions were edited though. Today we received comments from existing members that none of them could edit posts which was one of the granted permissions. When I investigated I noticed that only the admins had the moderate content permission. Weird.

Strange. The upgrade wouldn't have impacted that. If you are able to identify any specific scenario where things may be going awry, it would be great if you could put in a support topic with more details. Thanks!

No worries, we only have a couple custom permission circles and it only took a minute to restore content moderation to this group. On the other hand, I just created my first recipe! We get a lot of spam so new members are placed into a moderated permission circle and have be cleared by a moderator which adds them to a different permission circle. The recipe I created automates this (at least in theory b/c I'm not sure how to find/use a recipe).

Great! Yeah, your use case is definitely a good example of the power of Recipes Once your recipe is set up with the rules you want, you can just sit back and watch it work. As the recipe is triggered (e.g. as users register or post), it will work automatically behind the scenes, performing the tasks you assigned it to do... Have a great weekend!

CRAP, if that's the case then I don't think I set this up right b/c the trigger would add every new member to an un-moderated permission group. Here's what it looks like:

It would depend on what trigger you use for that recipe. If you'd like further assistance or have further questions, can you please create a new support topic , and we'd be happy to assist you further. It's a bit more difficult to tailor the support to you in the blog's comments section. Thanks!

Re: The Recipes Release

Thanks Brian, will do. Really interested in the possibilities of recipes. The company I work for has a home-grown forum system that isn't doing well so I took them on a tour of the Hoop.la site I manage and they were very impressed. IMO it would be better to migrate to a Hoop.la community than continue down the path of the DIY approach. I'll submit a support topic to discuss the trigger for the scenario we've been talking about.

Sounds great, Augie! Let us know if you'd like us to demo Hoop.la for your company, too. We'd be happy to set up a customized demo site and have someone from our sales team reach out. Or you can just have them contact us directly: http://www.hoop.la/contact-any.php

Hi Deb, You'll be happy to know that this request has now been implemented! You can create a recipe for new content and replies with a "Posted By Email" condition. With that condition, you can set up your recipe to match content/replies posted by email or content/replies not posted by email. Thanks again for the suggestion! Brian

Re: moderate member based on email post

Brian Lenz ·
Hello, Sorry I wasn't more clear. I explained only one half of the scenario. The other half is a new condition for the Member Registers trigger. For Member Registers , there is a new condition called Registered During Post By Email . You can use that trigger and condition combination to reject new registrations by email. It will in effect prevent the post from being made, as well. You can read more about The Templates Release that included these new recipe features here:...

Re: Recipe to send an email to new members who have not posted any content

Brian Lenz ·
Hi ST, You want the Post Registration Action recipe trigger. That trigger happens X days after a member has registered (where X is configurable). You could set that to 30 if you wanted to email members 30 days after registration. Note that this is slightly different than the approach you described, which is based off a specific date. You can then add conditions for the member's post count (0) and permission circle. This way, it will only apply to members in that permission circle with no...

Hi Brian, I could not find a Post Registration Action recipe trigger. Here are the triggers that I see. So I set the trigger to last visit 10 days ago - just to set an arbitrary trigger. I did find a condition for registration date. But could not add "You can then add conditions for the member's post count (0)". I'd prefer to do that instead of testing for last visit. The action for this recipe is to send an email. As it turns out - this recipe does not actually do anything. Do you see why...

Re: Recipe to send an email to new members who have not posted any content

Hi ST, You don't want the Member Inactive trigger, as that trigger will also require the user will not have visited the site in X days. A user could easily keep visiting the site, but not post. That's an extra condition you don't want, and it has limitations in terms of the conditions, as you found out. You do need to use the Post Registration Action trigger I mentioned. That trigger is not available within group recipes, which is why you are not seeing it. You will need to create the recipe...

Re: Hardcode notification settings for all users

Hi Mary- You can already do #1. Go to the Recipes control panel and look for this prebuilt template "Contact Members Who Have Been Inactive For A Certain Period Of Time". When you lick on that, you can configure how many days since last visit, and of course customize the email that is sent to those members. #2 is not currently possible, since we have no recipe trigger based on users changing their notifications, currently. I can convert this to a suggestion for that, if you like. It sounds...

Re: Hardcode notification settings for all users

Thanks, Ted – I skipped the General section altogether, so now I see #1 right at the top… duh! For #2 I would like to be able to hardcode notification settings by role – at least minimum notification frequency settings so they can’t turn off certain notifications completely, and certain ones have a minimum of the weekly digest. Possible? Thank you! Mary

Re: Way for Admins to Get Copied on Automated Messages

Jonmark Weber ·
Hello Julie, Any recipe that allows you to send a notification to the member/author you should also have another action to send a notification to administrators. I would recommend that you setup a action to email the members of permission circle that you are a member of. That will allow you to know that notifications were sent for that recipe, and the notification to a permission circle would not have been sent without the notification that is sent as well. If you want to test the recipe you...

Where is the action to just send an email to welcome a new member aboard, for example? Or to congratulate a member on making a certain number of posts? Under "Choose Action" I see only: Add Points Add to Permission Circle Moderate Member Reject Registration Send Notification to Specific Permission Circles Set Activity Title Where is the one that says, "Send email to member." These kinds of email messages can be powerful marketing tools.

Re: Sneak Peak: Recipes

Jonmark Weber ·
Hello Rich, You should be able to find "Send Notification To Member/Post Author" for many of the recipes (Member Makes First Post) for example. We decided not to include a "Send Notification To Member" action for "Member Registers" since there is already a option in registration settings to include a "Welcome Email introduction" message in the email that is sent to new members. This email also includes valuable information that cannot be replicated by recipes which is the primary reason we...

Re: Sneak Peak: Recipes

Rich Melvin ·
Jonmark, we're good to go. I forgot that the system already sends a "Welcome" email when someone registers. I have now set up congratulatory emails that will get sent to a member at their 100th, 500th and 1,000th posts. This will be a great marketing tool to keep people interested in posting on our forums. We may even start to offer a free gift to those who reach certain posting milestones. We could now set up a "recipe" (where did you come up with that name? Seems a bit odd...) to send an...

Hello Rich, Glad you were able to get that all figured out and glad you are liking Recipes I would recommend creating a new Recipe for supporting including any profile information from the Author/Member for member based recipe triggers in the message. Currently we only support including minimal amounts of information, and that valuable idea really should be developed in a separate suggestion. Thanks, Jonmark

"Message Variables" isn't a clickable link in my browser (Chrome for Windows). Do you have a web page that lists/explains all the variables and codes?

Re: Introducing Recipes

Brian Lenz ·
Hi DebAsWas, "Message Variables" actually isn't a link; it's a hover element, so you just need to hover your mouse over it to see the Message Variables that apply. That hover dropdown is the only place we are displaying Message Variables currently. Here's an example screenshot of what it looks like: Note that the variables that will apply vary depending on the Recipe trigger that you're using, so you'll always want to check to make sure the variables you're using are applicable. Hope that...

Re: How to keep a keen eye on newbie posts

Great idea, Ted! We occasionally have spammers register and then try to promote products that have nothing to do with our site. The posts get reported by other members and we zap 'em, but by using this recipe the posts would never be seen by anyone in the first place. Nice.

Re: How to keep a keen eye on newbie posts

Frenz Webmistress Deb ·
Is there a recipe for what we deal with? I have posting from email on. Our forum email gets heaps of spam. Hoop.la treats each spam email like a new member trying to register. The post is in the moderation queue so at least nobody sees the spam. But I wish that we could allow "posting via email" but auto decline any registration that appears to come from a first email. Any recipe for that? That would save me daily time in manually declining obvious spammers. Thanks.

Re: How to keep a keen eye on newbie posts

Ted O'Neill ·
Hi Deb- Your scenario is not supported in that we would need to have a condition that checks to see if the content is submitted by email. I think that is a great idea, though, so we will consider adding that for a future release. Once we support that, you can just create a 'moderate content' recipe and set a condition for content posted by email. You may want to post this as an idea in our support site , if you want to be notified when that is added a feature.
