Many clients ask for e-mail notifications to be triggered by actions taken when using our intranet plugins. While many of our plugins do offer this as a core feature, such as in our Simple Leave plugin for leave requests and approval management, others may not.
A free plugin called “Better Notifications for WordPress” is what we recommend for adding e-mails to actions taken in WordPress. It works well for example with our Simple Announcements plugin, where you can selected e-mails to be triggered when New Announcements are published. Just look for the custom post type “Announcements” when you set this up.
