I don’t understand how to set up email notifications in Squidex. I’d like contributors to be emailed when they are mentioned in a comment. The email should include the comment, the content item the comment relates to, and a link to get to it in the Squidex interface. I’m sorry if this is already documented somewhere.

Great product, by the way!

You can use a rule for that.

On the left side (action) you have “User mentioned” and on the right side (action) you use the squidex email with the $MENTIONED_EMAIL as placeholder for the email address.

But I am working on a new notification system, which will be announced soon. So I hope that in a few weeks it is not necessary anymore. You can then also subscribe to content items or schemas or whatever is interesting for you.


Thanks very much, Sebastian. That worked well. One thing that didn’t work was “$CONTENT_URL” — which I was hoping would point to the item that had the mention related to it.

Great news about the new notification system.
