Support for Automation Rules

No Response 1.1.0

Hi @Michael,

Is it possible to add the support for the Automation Rules application written by Kevin Carwile? 

Having an Event "A new entry has been logged" triggered every time a new duplicate log appears, will open a wide range of possibilities how to deal with this log: with Rules we can maintain the moderators notifications, create new topics/post new messages in a topic, send to some specific members an email/a notification/an inline message/a personal message, or even warn the users, who has created an alternative account and many-many other possibilities!

If you are not much sure, how to deal with that application, and how to start with it, try to contact Kevin, according to his topic, he would probably help you :) 

This will help to make your wonderful application more flexible in use, more convenient and practical.

Thank you,

i'll look into it, can't make any promises as a lot of my customers have had issues with rules, so there hasn't been a whole lot of demand in integration with it.

Strange to read that. Do you see so many topics below requesting some new features? Adding support to a very powerfull Rules application will resolve most of them ;) 

If someone from your customers have problem with the Rules application, we can just ask them to not use and not install the Rules.But I believe the rest of your customers will be happy to see the integration! :)

this is one of the reasons i don't recommend rules, it's hooks throw errors. one of my clients had reported this one awhile back, i can see the latest version still hasn't fixed it. it also tends to make things that are optional in nodes/items, a requirement or the app will throw an error, again all have been reported, still not fixed. so take that at what you will.

yes i do see the request for new features for this app, however i'd like to keep the app as simple as possible, not to give the false impression that it is a simple tool to detect potential duplicate accounts. if you can get the dev to rules to fix the errors i've mentioned, i would be more open to add support for it, but if i can't even get it installed  on my dev board without it causing issues, i'm inclined to pass on it.
