This plugin adds group email functionality to BuddyPress.
Once installed, a new item is added to the group menu allowing group admins and moderators to send an email to all the other members in the group.
Benefits of BuddyPress Group Email
- Easily communicate with group members without having to locate and input all of their email addresses
- Ensure that messages are received, even if a user’s notifications are turned off
- Keep users interacting on your site with an in-house communications center for their various groups
Here’s the link in action:
Once clicked, the group admin can simply enter in a subject and text for the body of the email – and hit send.
An email will then be sent (note, this won’t be an internal BuddyPress message, it’ll be an email to the users email accounts) to all group members.
Simple and effective :)
Here’s the whole plugin in action using one of our themes:
