Automated email Birthday Message

In progress Automated email Birthday Message

Post by cougar30 on January 21st 2012, 1:10 pm

Hi,

Is there anyway of automatically sending a user/any user an automated Happy Birthday message to their email inbox without them having to go to you're forum regardless?

I hope this can be done.

Many Thanks

Andy

Hello,

This is for registered users. Do automated messages get sent to the users inbox regardless if they are logged in on the day or not?

So sent automatically to users/members of the forum regardless? Obviously as long as they have put in their date of birth.. I have checked this out as the creator/Administrator of the forum and I don't receive this when it's my Birthday... So hence why I thought I would ask this question.

What I am saying is that when it is my Birthday and as the Creator/Administrator of the forum, as email doesn't get sent. So is there anything I need to check or an automated setup in ACP that needs setting up?

I don't think an e-mail gets sent. What you do get is a pop-up notification similar to a PM notification box. In the box is the message you made.

Hi Mermaid,
That is what I thought. Hence why I asked is there any way of sending an email to wish a user a Happy Birthday? Any code?
Many Thanks

I'm sorry, I don't know of one. Perhaps some other user does.

Hi MrMario,

I don't have any code currently. I just wondered if there is any code to send an email to registered users on the date of a users Birthday?
Many Thanks.

How do you have the birthday management set? Never asked if you had any codes. And there isn't any codes for the birthday management anyways.

As far as I know this comes up when/if a user logs in on their Birthday.
