I have a channel called foo which is tied up to a member via Safecracker Registration.

The foo channel has a field for an email.

When someone edits a foo channel entry, I want to send an email to the owner of the channel entry.

Is there way to in the Parcels/Hooks so that the email can be sent to the user via the email field?

Yeah this is pretty standard functionality.

  1. Create a new parcel
  2. Your To Email would be {member:email}, which grabs the email of the entry's author
  3. Set the entry trigger to "Edit"

Here is a screenshot to be 100% clear.

  • I think this answers my needs. But for the sake of discussion, lets say I want to get an email from channel entries data. What if, for example, you need to set a different email from the member's own(like "company_email")? Commented Apr 4, 2014 at 2:06
  • Say, @arvinsim, did you manage to figure out how to send an email to an address in a channel field? Commented Jun 26, 2014 at 21:50
