Why Use Activity Emails?

Activity Feeds is an essential component of BuddyBoss, if you want that your members get email notification for Global, personal, and group activity feeds with threaded commenting, direct posting, and @mentions. Today in this tutorial you will learn how to configure all the emails that are sent out from Activity Feeds. 

Configure Activity Emails

  1. Go to BuddyBoss - Components. Scroll down to find the Activity Feeds option. 

  1. Now, navigate to the BuddyBoss - Help, click on BuddyBoss Platform. Scroll down below to get the BuddyBoss Labs

After clicking BuddyBoss Labs, there will be an option BuddyBoss Emails. Hit the Email Tokens.

Scroll down to get the Activity Tokens. As a website owner, you can edit the content of email notifications with these Email Tokens. There are 3 tokens for Activity Emails. 

Every token has a particular situation. Like the first one is when the recipient was mentioned in an activity update. 

Second one is when a member has replied to an activity update that the recipient posted. 

And the third is when a member has replied to a comment on an activity update that the recipient posted. 

Let’s see the template which is dedicated to these tokens. From the left sidebar press on Emails. For the easy navigation of the users, there are ready made email templates. You can find associated emails by using the search feature. As you can see I searched with the subject of an activity email ‘Mention You in a Status Update’ and BuddyBoss found the email template associated with that word!

If you edit the template, the interface will look like below. There will be Plain Text Email Content of HTML if you go down for easy navigation. You can change the content and use the token references which are attached to that particular email. Before using the content of your email ensure its making proper sense and have the correct logic for the situation. 

Apart from checking out the templates, you can also go through the process of Customization of Email Layouts

  1. You may delete all the texts or the format of the email template in terms of editing. Well, you can get back the email templates as they stay after newly installing BuddyBoss. To do so, go to ToolsRepair Community

Tick the Reset Emails option and hit the Repair Items button. That is all for setting your Activity Emails.
