IP.Nexus integration with the bulk mailer

We identified a use case recently where we wanted to send a bulk mail to all clients who had purchased a particular package in IP.Nexus. This is not uncommon. Perhaps the package is being discontinued. Perhaps you erroneously over charged for this package. Perhaps there will be a special on additional purchases of this package. Regardless of the reason, it is logical and ordinary that you want to email all clients who have purchased a given package.

Because the bulk mailer was improved in 3.4 and now supports per-application extensions, we have written one for IP.Nexus 1.5.7 that allows you to control with the bulk mailer certain ways to filter members based on packages they have purchased.

The way this works is very simple. When you go to send a new bulk mail, there is now an IP.Nexus tab in the filters area allowing you to filter by IP.Nexus purchases. You can also control whether you send to only active purchases, expired purchases, cancelled purchases, or any combination there-of. Here is a screenshot to show you what it looks like on our site:



I'm sure you can see just how valuable this small but useful change will be. This enhancement will be available with the release of IP.Nexus 1.5.7.

What other types of filters have you wanted to bulk mail members utilizing, but can't presently?

Great feature! Could this possibly be extended to include any of those three options PLUS a specified date range?  I'd like to be able to email members with active purchases that purchased only within the last three months, for instance.

It would be great to send out an email to those who haven't purchased in the last x months, who have been active in the last x months so you can send these active users coupons to purchase packages.  That way you aren't emailing people who purchased 2 years ago and haven't been back since then (if you didn't want to - since some people just move on).

I second that, a date range is a must for that option!

What if a member cancelled a purchase and then later purchased it When I click send to cancel purchase, will the mail go to that member? What about the opposite case

 

The options look for a *current* cancelled or active package.  What they did in the past is irrelevant, all that matters is the current status of their package.

I'd like to see the ability to separate the outgoing email board vs nexus, have a different email for the board and nexus :smile:

 

Hope you consider this.

You should suggest that in the feedback forum and not here, otherwise it might not be seen.

Agree. Great enhancement but it's not usable in my case without ability to specify the date range, where th purchase was made.
