Users of my site should be able to subscribe to a news mailing list. When publishing pages based on a news page template, a mail should automatically be sent to users on the news mailing list. The mail should contain a snippet / teaser of the news page published.
How would I go about implementing the above using AEM?
Use the existing mailing list (subscribe / unsubscribe) functionality and add a custom workflow to handle the sending of mail when publishing a page based on the news template?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Using a Workflow for this use case is the correct way to proceed. The workflow will publish the page and then send email messages to a subscribed list.
