Just purchased Postmaster, and its working great. Kind of wish I had got it ages ago and saved myself loads of manual emails!
My users submit entries via a safecracker form, that come to me with a status of "pending". I have set up two parcels. The first one sends the user a notification that I have received their entry. This is easily achieved by using the "New" entry trigger & "Pending" status trigger. Works fine.
I then review the entry, make any edits where needed, set the status to "open" and publish the entry.
My next parcel send the entry author an email to tell them the entry is now live on the site. I have set this up via the "edit" entry trigger, and the "open" status.
This works very well. However, if I was to go in and edit that entry again, say simply for a typo, when I save it, it will fire of the original email again.
i do not want this, I only want the original first email to go out, so I am wondering what would be the best way to achieve this?
The only ways I can think, are to have a custom field that maybe identifies that the entry has been edited, and use that in the extra conditionals, or to set up another status of "edited" and ensure that if I make an edit, I change the status to edited.
Can anyone think of an easier way? Ideally I would like it to be as automated as possible!
