This article will explain you how to create an auto-Newsletter.
The auto-Newsletter feature is included in AcyMailing Business and Enterprise.
An auto-Newsletter is a Newsletter automatically sent to one or several of your lists at a fixed frequency (every day, every week, every month... you can select anything you want).
Our auto-Newsletter system is integrated with several Joomla components so you can include in your auto-Newsletter your newly created (or modified) Joomla articles, your newly created virtueMart products, your upcoming events from jCalPro, jEvents, EventList, your new content for K2, your new listings from Mosets Tree...
And for each of these integrations, you will be able to specify a "minimum number of articles" to allow the generation of the Newsletter so you can use our auto-Newsletter system as a notification system too for newly created content/article/events/products...
If the result of the tag does not match your minimum number of articles, the Newsletter won't be generated and won't be sent.
You can create as many auto-Newsletters as you want and attach those auto-Newsletters to one or several lists.
At any time you want, you can click on the button "Generate".
If AcyMailing generated a Newsletter from this auto-Newsletter, you will be able to see it as a scheduled Newsletter in the listing of standard Newsletters.
You don't have to click on the button "Generate". It's something AcyMailing will do automatically with the cron task so you should do it only if you are wondering what's going on.
It requires two triggers from the cron task to generate and send your Newsletter automatically.
My Auto-Newsletter is generated properly when I click on the Generate button but it does not do the job automatically, why?
The automatic process requires a cron task. Please make sure you configured a cron task on our server or on your own server and test your cron task to make sure it's working properly.
The Newsletter is created automatically. But this Newsletter is published and no e-mail are added to the queue, why?
First, make sure your auto-Newsletter is attached to at least one published list and that this list contains at least one subscriber!
But this case is a normal behaviour if you selected the option Generating Mode: Wait for the confirmation before sending so you should edit your auto-Newsletter and make sure you selected the option Generating Mode: Send the generated Newsletter
First of all, you should make sure your cron task is configured properly and running.
AcyMailing won't send the Newsletter immediately.
You can add several tags with different categories (or even the same categories).
Yes, you can! That's very useful if you use the auto-responder as a notification system so you can even add the article title in your Newsletter subject.
