Full Version: Pending Transactions Summary E-mails Now Live

I'm pleased to announce that a system for sending Pending Transactions Summary e-mails is now live.

Once per week, all members with one or more pending transactions will receive an e-mail that summarizes all of their pending transactions. The e-mail also provides links to update each of those transactions (as their status changes) as well as a reminder to frequently visit the My Transactions section of the Collector Zone to manage all of their transactions.

An example of this e-mail has been attached. wink.gif

We trust that this change will provide a valuable service to our members by simply helping to keep track of their pending transactions and encouraging timely updates to transactions.

Soon. I just needed to take a number of transaction-related changes live before moving to a new project. wink.gif

Thanks. The other additions are great too!

This week's e-mails have been sent and, based on activity so far, they appear to be working. Members are encouraged to let me know if they see any inaccurate details in their summary, don't receive the summary even though they have at least one pending transaction or receive more than one copy of the e-mail.

Thanks,

-Bob

Thanks Bob,

I thought that was a new thing when I got one. It will help immensely when people have been on vacation and they see an email listing transactions that need their attention.

It appears that these weekly e-mails will help in numerous ways. cool.gif

Hi Bob,
I think that this is a great idea. The only thing is that today I received 3 of the exact same emails from this. Last time I only got one, so I'm not sure what happened this time. Just thought I'd let you know.

Thanks for the information. We'll review the code and attempt to determine what might cause that to happen.

-Bob
nerk01
I too received 3. Is there anyway to turn them off?

Edit: worse case scenario I could auto filter them into the spam folder.
Kmart6nets
Ditto.

No. However, they are now "turned off" for you because I simply moved your pending transaction to the Failed Transactions forum since the other member continues to ignore requests to update the status of that transaction.

-Bob
bob_TCC
Did each of you only receive a single copy last week?

-Bob
arodandgwynn
As I stated in my post I did only receive 1 last week, but 3 this week.
bob_TCC
Ok. I apologize for any duplicate e-mails. We'll review the code for this tool again and perform another set of tests prior to next week's e-mails being sent. wink.gif

-Bob
arodandgwynn
Not a problem Bob. The delete button on my e-mail gets a lot of use to so I don't mind adding two more items to the trash. tongue.gif

Bob,

I got 3 today and 1 on Tues and 1 on Wed of last week.

The one on Tuesday of last week was part of the test set that only went to Collector Zone Team members and the one on Wednesday was the first of these e-mails.

The good news is that 3 seems to be the magic number that everyone received. Therefore, it should be easier to find and correct.

Again, I apologize for the duplicate e-mails.

Sounds like a great idea. Only thing is I received 3 emails today for a transaction that is almost two years old. not sure whatever happened to the other guy I made the trade with, but he is not around. Is there anyway to get this old transaction closed? I don't want to get 3 emails a week for something I cannot control.

Thanks,
John

Cool, Bob! I received one last week and two this week.

John,

I went ahead and moved your pending transaction to the Failed Transactions forum since the other member continues to ignore requests to update the status of that transaction.

tongue.gif It's really not a big deal, as gmail just groups them all together, but I certainly understand why you need to work to get it fixed.

I received three copies as well this week. No big deal, just saying.
bob_TCC
<---- Thinks to himself... "How to spin this? How to spin this?"



The system actually has a built-in "irritation factor" which is currently set to 3. The irritation factor is used to assist in encouraging members to update their transactions in order to stop getting e-mails while avoiding causing so much frustration that they stop visiting the site. tongue.gif laugh.gif

I don't think I got one this week....

Bob, I received 3 as well. I'd prefer it if we only received 1. Also, do you think you could get to my PM sometime?

Yes. As soon as I'm prepared to move forward on either item, I'll let you know. At the moment, I'm racing in too many directions. blink.gif
