Notification from template

Rbirmann (talkcontribs)

Hi all,

We have a corporate wiki running MW 1.26.2 and would like to be able to assign responsibility of keeping certain pages updated to certain team members (users). We use a simple template {{Responsible|username}} to add a small box on the top of the article text saying "This article is maintained by ''username''" followed by a picture of the assigned user.

We are trying to figure out a way of notifying the user whenever a new article is assigned to him by someone else, either by email or any other means.

Is it possible to do this using Echo? In other words, would it be possible to change the Responsible template to notify the user on save?

Any thought will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Rbirmann

At the moment, it is not possible to do that with the current features available with Notifications. You have to develop a new extension in order to send a notification when an article is affected to a user.

At the moment, there is a lot of requests for new notifications. Feel free to add yours!
