Is there any way to have a notification popup come up in front end to notify of a new record submitted via breezingforms or contentbuilder view to say a new form has been submitted?

Hi,

if a simple alert (BreezingForms) is enough, you can turn it on in form => advanced => more options => Scripts => submitted script => pick "ff_showsubmitted" from the "Library" and save the settings.

Thanks Markus, I already have the notification to show the form was submitted to the user, but was hoping to show a notification on screen to logged in admins to advise that a form was submitted or have a module show what or even just how many submissions had not been read, like on your phone when you have unread text messages.

Maybe a custom module with unread submissions to show admins in front end? something like latest articles module for contentbuilder view?

Tony

Hi,

you mean like a notification? I could experiment with browser notifications which should fire the windows 10 notification bar.

If you want me to do that, I love to try that out.

As a workround, you could use the Skype integration and use its desktop/mobile notification options instead.

Markus

Where would I find documentation to set up the skype desktop notifications, to see if that would fit my needs?

I think the best option would be in a module, like latest articles showing any submissions that had not been action/read yet, would that be possible? I could then add a check box in the view to say it had been actioned & would then not show in the module.

Don't think the widows 10 desktop notifications would work as it would not stay visible on screen. I need to make sure the reports are actioned on arrival in case there is something important.

Regards,
Tony.

If it would be fine for you if people would actually select an action (like "I have read this"), then you could use custom actions in the Actions tab of your view setup.

You can create your own actions there and even create small plugins to decide what should happen on each action.

Basically, for admins, I would copy the view and apply the actions there. Then setting up the copied view permissions such that only admins may interfere with that view (and change the states through actions, with color codes for example).

You could even trigger events using some small action plugins if that would be required, as well.
