Hi Balbooa team!!

On a recent project, a client asked me to be notified whenever someone on his team makes a new post. Joomla this was possible, but in Gridbox not yet...
I think of an option in the APP config to select the group(s) that will be notified, or none (default)... Not for pages, only for Blog, zero, etc...

How about thinking about this possibility?? ;)

The problem will be to define what is the event who send mails.
* first save of item (page post, ...) ?
* first publishing ?
* special button for that ?
* another ?

Hi Claude!!

If the function is enabled in the APP, I think it would be ideal to send a notification when the page is created. Only at that moment, as in Joomla!
Something simple, but that can make a difference for administrators...

Think of a news site where we have authors who can create news but not publish it. This would prevent the editor or administrator from having to log in all the time to see if he has news to publish. Of course we can think of blog teams, journal articles, etc...

Hi Ivo,
Yes for enable/disable this function in app themself
But what is the exact definition for the item (page post ...) creation ?
What append if i duplicate an item ? for example
And what is the notification : by mail ? or other system ?
And who is notified ?
I agree with your last paragraph
We have to help Balbooa with better specification for this request, no ?

Hi Claude,

But what is the exact definition for the item (page post ...) creation ?
When I enter the name of the page and its category and submit, a function is executed to create the page. After that I am redirected to the editor, from there any save action I will be editing the page (no more notifications).



What append if i duplicate an item ? for example
In my view, duplication performs the "same" function as creating the page. It would also run the notification.

And what is the notification : by mail ? or other system?
Email would be enough, like in Joomla...

And who is notified?
All users who belong to the group defined in the APP configuration.

We have to help Balbooa with better specification for this request, no?
Of course, Balbooa Team saved my life with Gridbox... I'm a developer and I always try to bring something useful and help the team!

I'm happy to get your attention on this suggestion. Every new gridbox improvement is a moment of celebration for me.

Hi Ivo,
It becomes very clear, we now have to convince Balbooa
I've been using Gridbox for 5 years now after trying several joomla extensions (which I use before it was called joomla but mambo) and it's true that Balbooa is an amazing team.
I regret that he does not have a file or other to collect suggestions, a forum is not the ideal place, the same for anomalies
But I'm probably too demanding, given the context in which the team works, let's not forget
Can you look at my suggestions and give your comments please?
What do you think of a file shared between users for suggestions and maybe also for use cases ?
Possible to have your mail to discuss outside the forum ?
Nice day
Claude

Hi Claude!!

I've been using Gridbox for 5 years now after trying several joomla extensions...
Yes, since 2004 I have struggled with this Joomla content system, I have used more than 30 plugins and modules to complement it. Every day there was a list of components to update, I don't even like to remember.
I was already considering using another option to Joomla, until I got to know Gridbox and everything changed. I even say that I use Gridbox with Joomla (not Joomla with Gridbox).
The Balbooa team has been providing good assistance via the forum, however we really don't have an idea of what they are working on and if a solution important to us is in the works. Every new version is always a surprise!!

Can you look at my suggestions and give your comments please?
I sure wish I had more time, but I'll schedule a couple of days a week to follow the forum and try to help with the comments.

What do you think of a file shared between users for suggestions and maybe also for use cases ?
I think it's great...
I use a tool called Clickup to manage my tasks and they use a great service for Roadmaps called Canny (canny.io). It works like a Forum, but in a well-organized way, allowing you to vote on the suggestion and receive feedback. This link has an example of how it works: clickup.canny.io
I believe that the team could implement something similar, maybe even in the forum itself, because I think the tool is quite expensive, but it would be very good to know the progress of the suggestions.

Possible to have your mail to discuss outside the forum ?
Of course, my work email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Let's talk... Have a nice day!!
