Dynamic Mass Mailing Lists

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/social Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

Without this addon you have to choose between providing a dynamic domain and letting your mass mailings reach all partners that match it.

This addon allows you to create dynamic mailing lists, so you can now benefit from both things.

Table of contents

Configuration

To create a dynamic mailing list, you need to:

  1. Go to Email Marketing > Configuration > Settings
  2. Check Mass Mailing Campaigns.
  3. Go to Email Marketing > Mailing List > Mailing List
  4. Check the Dynamic box.
  5. Choose a Sync method:
    • Leave empty to use as a manual mailing list, the normal behavior.
    • Only add new records to make sure no records disappear from the list when partners stop matching the Synchronization critera.
    • Add and remove records as needed to make the list be fully synchronized with the Synchronization critera, even if that means removing contacts from it.
  6. Define a Synchronization criteria that will be used to match the partners that should go into the list as contacts. Only partners with emails will be selected.

You can also load an existing filter over contacts:

  1. Click on "Load filter" button below criteria.
  2. Select one of the existing filters.
  3. Click on "Load filter" and you will have that filter as criteria.

Usage

To use this module, you need to:

  1. Go to Email Marketing > Mailings, and create one.
  2. Select as recipients a mailing list.
  3. On "Select mailing lists:", choose one mailing list with dynamic flag checked.
  4. Before sending the mass mailing, the list will be synced for having latest changes.

When you hit the Sync now button or send a mass mailing to this list, its contacts will be automatically updated.

Pay attention to the messages shown to you that tell you about some non-obvious behaviour you could experience if you edit manually contacts from a dynamic list.
