manaTec double opt in for email marketing
Add double opt-in feature (as requested by GDPR) to email marketing module
Double opt-in is a process in online marketing in which the subscriber of a newsletter or the receipt of company information has to confirm his consent, in contrast to the single opt-in, in a second step.
With this module it is possible to use this process with Odoo.
The module supports English and German.
Double opt-in process
Step 1: Subscribe via the Odoo newsletter snippet
Step 2: Mail with the link to confirm the subscription will be sent automatically
If the user subscribes to the newsletter via the newsletter snippet (step 1) an email will be sent automatically. The user has to press the button in the email or open the included link to confirm the subscription. Thereby the user completes the subscription process. For the first mail a new mail template (Double Opt-In) is added in English and German and can be configured in the Odoo settings at Technical/Template.
Step 3: Confirm subscription and redirect to subscription status page
When the confirm action is triggered (step 2) the subscription will be confirmed.
The opt-out attribute in the mass mailing contact is set to false and the user will be able receive newsletters.
After the confirmation process the user will be redirected to subscription status page.
There the last subscription action is shown as well as the button to unsubscribe from the newsletter.
The link to the status page is defined as followes:
https://<base url>/<doi hash of the contact>/status
Step 4: Unsubscribe via link in a newsletter or status page
The user can unsubscribe from the newsletter by using the link at the bottom of any newsletter email or by pressing the unsubscribe button at the status page (see step 3). After the unsubscribing process the user will be redirected to the subscription status page. There the user has the opportunity to resubscribe to the newsletter.
Extend mass mailing contact with double opt-in log information
Report of contact subscription history
A print report option, including the information about the contact and the subscription history, has been added to the mass mailing contacts.
Currently there is a bug in Odoo that, with a specific constellation, the standard Odoo unsubscribe link at the bottom of a newsletter mail is not generated.
When the selected website language from the Mass Mailing Writer is not the same as the website default language,
the unsubscribe link will contain a language specification like "de_DE/unsubscribe_from_list".
If that's the case, Odoo does not generate the user specific unsubscribe link correctly.
Please make sure that the unsubscription link looks always as follows: "/unsubscribe_from_list" (without a language specification)!
