Introduction

Community Builder extensions

I needed to create bulk email messages to Users in my Joomla CB database on a filtered basis. I.e. Users that yet had not completed a certain training, Users that were of a certain age, etc. In my emails I needed to include fields from the CB database such as firstname, lastname, etc. Additionally I needed the email to be sent to multiple addresses for each user (not possible with other solutions).

I created a Joomla Component that took advantage from CB list functionality for creation of filters for the emails and added an email template functionality for writing the email and adding CB fields to them.

I created a sender-functionality that allows you to preview emails, send one of them to you for email client preview and then a final button for sending the emails to all receivers.

Functionality

This tool is a great alternative when Community Builder Mass Mailer has insufficient filter options and if you need cc's associate to users.

Ease of use

Installation and use is straightforward. Use could be optimized by allowing editing of the mail in the send menu.

Support

After installing I found two issues which each of them was solved within a day.

Documentation

The tool is straigthforward and intuitive. Nevertheless documentation can be found on GitHub.

I used this to: I use this tool to overcome limitations of the standard mass mail filter in Community Builder. User lists have more elaborate filter functions. With HQ CB listmailer it is possible to use these lists directly in Joomla instead of copying them manual to an external mail client.
