Sending privacy confirmation email via Import

Hi,

I want to send a privacy confirmation e-mail every time a new person is imported, and I assumed I could do this by turning on the confirmation e-mail under Privacy - Source -> Import. However this does not seem to work, nothing is being sent out when the person is imported. It works fine with "Created by user".

Is this by design or a bug? Any advice?

 

I have tested this in SuperOffice Online.

 

Here's a imported person, you can see that the source is set to "Import", but no e-mail has been sent as you can see in the Activites tab.

This is a bug unfortunately

Sorry to spoil this, but this is by design.

Sending an email in this case will have huge impact on performance.

An selection is build of persons created during an import, and you will have to take it from here...

 

 

Have a Super day

I do not think it was intended  for this function to work  - to automatically send privacy emails to imported contacts.

'send automatically..' checkbox should be removed for Import..

You have to make sure to send privacy emails after importing persons.

From a performance point of view that makes sense, still I would really wish this was a feature somehow. :)
