Workflow: how to send email to previous editor of a node

quindio's picture

I am running Drupal 6 and the workflow module and I need to send an email to the last
user that edited a page when it get rejected so they know that they need to look at the
page and fix the problem. I also have the Token module running and it provides several
special tokens to use but there is not a previous editor token. I tried these tokens:
[workflow-current-state-updating-user-uid] uid of last state changer
[workflow-current-state-updating-user-mail] email of last state changer

These token give you the current updater that happens to be the user that is logged in
or [user-mail] [user-name].

Is there a way to get a hold of the previous editor to put that on the recipient
to send an email when the changes are rejected?

Not sure if it's what you're looking for, but apparently the following tokens are available with the Revisioning module:

  • vid: Node revision ID
  • revision-title: Revision title
  • revision-author-uid: Revision author's user id
  • revision-author-name: Revision author's user name
  • revision-author-name-raw: Revision author's user name -- aw user input.
  • revision-author-mail: Revision author's e-mail
  • revision-author-mail-raw: Revision author's e-mail -- raw user input.

See Issue #633114 Token for revision author.

Thanks for the reply

HI othermachines,
I was able to solved my problem by using RULES were I force a chance
of the owner's name to the editor's name when the page is edited.
After this I use tokenize email where you do get a choice of different
pre-set variable fields to use in your email.

I will look at to see how it can be done using REVISIONS

Thanks for your reply!!!!
