Right now there are notices for suggestions, but no way for patrons to decide if they want those emails (or for the librarian to decide for that matter). I think it just happens when a suggestion is submitted.
I suggest that we add an option to the enhanced messaging options for the patron to decide if they get those emails. Another suggestion is that the library have an on off toggle to decide if they're sent.
Chat log below for more info.
[10:30] <nengard> got a question about suggestion emails - are they being sent to anyone who submits a purchase suggestion?
[10:30] <nengard> or is there supposed to be a preference or messaging option for patrons to decide if they get that email?
[10:31] <Brooke> I think there might be two separate toggles.
[10:32] <nengard> where might i find those? cause i'm not seeing them
[10:33] <nengard> this is in reference to the commits of bug 4211, bug 5127 and bug 5126
[10:33] <munin> Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=4211 major, P2, ---, chris, NEW, Acquisitions actions on suggestions don't generate email
[10:33] <munin> Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=5127 major, P5, ---, oleonard, RESOLVED FIXED, No sample suggestions notices are installed by default
[10:33] <munin> Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=5126 major, P5, ---, oleonard, NEW, Suggestions module missing from "add notice" form.
[10:34] <owen> nengard: I don't know of a setting for that
[10:34] <nengard> yeah - i'm not seeing one, so i'm assuming the system just sends the emails (now that it's fixed)
[10:34] <nengard> I don't have emails on on my system to test with
[10:41] <kf> nengard: I think you can perhaps deactivate it by deleting the notices templates?
[10:41] <kf> have thought about it too - a system preference would be nice
[10:42] <nengard> that's an idea
[10:43] <nengard> kf i'd say it should be part of the enhanced messages - to let the patron decide if they want the emails or not
[10:44] <kf> nengard: even better :)
[10:44] <nengard> off to submit a enhancement :)
[10:44] <kf> but perhaps an on /off for the feature would be good too
[10:44] <kf> have both
[10:44] <Brooke> *nod*
[10:44] <kf> so library can decide if they want to offer the mails
[10:44] <Brooke> I agree kf.
[10:44] <kf> and let patron decide if he wants to get them
