You may be well aware that WordPress sends by default a notification e-mail to the address that is set in the General Settings page of the Dashboard whenever a new user registers to your website. If you have a website where you manually approve new users this feature comes in handy .
But what if you have a whole team at your side that deals with new users? How do they get notifications? You may have a forwarding system in place, so that every time a new user registers, the notification email you receive is then sent to the others, or in a very worst case scenario you manually forward the emails yourself. In any case, there is now a better solution. Meet the Multiple Admin Emails Add-On for Profile Builder.
How it works
This little add-on adds a new option in the General Settings page of Profile Builder where you can type a list of email addresses that you wish to send notifications regarding users. Therefore when a new user registers notifications will be pushed to these addresses instead of the WordPress default.
Download and activate
Please note: The Multiple Admin Emails Add-On requires Profile Builder version 2.0.6 or higher.
When your download is complete, you can upload the .zip file in the Add Plugins page of the Dashboard or you can unzip the file and copy its contents in the wp-content/plugins directory. Then simply navigate to the Plugins page and activate the Add-On.
Add the email addresses
You are almost done at this point. Navigate to the General Settings page of Profile Builder and you will see the new option named “Admin Emails”. Here you can type as many email addresses as you need, separated by comma. By default when you activate the plugin this option will be populated with the WordPress default email address.
Try it out
All done. From now on notifications regarding users will be sent to the addresses you’ve entered.
