Email Digest

Periodic email digest#

You can set the number of days between email digests a user receives.

Email digests are automated emails sent to subscribed users that highlight suggested posts tailored to their interests, based on the tags they follow, users they follow, and a few other criteria.

Email digests are separate and distinct from email newsletters, which are sent and managed from a connected Mailchimp account. You will need to have SMTP settings configured for your Forem in order to send email digests. Your Forem will need at least 3 posts before Email digests are triggered to send automatically.

Users can opt in or out of these digests at any time from their Notification Settings at /settings/notifications. They can adjust the content of their digests by following/unfollowing/blocking users and organizations, or adjusting their tag weightings to reflect their interests.
