Searching: Tool to manage and create conditional actions

Hi you heroes :slight_smile:

i am looking for an easy way to manage custom behaviour of my site.
In the way of if this than that... if date of event is due in 3 days, send a defined reminder mail to all attendees.

So i'm looking for some kind of rules-engine, that runs as backend-task AND is able to react on direct calls (as kind of filter)
And i want to hook it easily into existing hooks (by some kind of selection out of existing action hooks)

Can you help me with that?

    Hey @holder

    Hope all is well with you and you are keeping fine !

    Im not sure if there is something that can do this out of the box for you as quite frankly as Cron and event based actions is one of the not so strong areas of the plugin. That said there are a couple of IFTTT connectors for WP like this that can help partially achieve this for you.

    Cheers

      Hi Jude and thanks for sharing :slight_smile:
      after exploring the links you posted, i see, they might be a fancy way to create Posts from external feeds.
      I am looking for a way to automate some procedures in my WP-based solution. So, it's rather the other direction.
      Any idea on that?

    Maybe some examples, to make my point more clear:
    onPurchase: put defined fields into mail-list
    3days before certain event starts: send invitation reminder
    onChange of event date: send info about new date wo all attendees of that event
    onPublish: send infos to SocialSharing plattforms
    onPurchase: send new availability to amazon or ebay-store
    daily: actualise product-feed as xml and provide it in defined place

    Hi Holger ,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    Firstly, sorry for the late reply and all the problems it may have caused.

    Honestly, I tried to make some research based on your requirements and I was unable to find any solution to that. I think this needs to be built as a custom solution.

    I hope our members can share their experience and bring some alternatives so you can achieve your goal.

    Cheers, Luís
