    Double opt-in

    First of all: great solution. I just didn't find any documentation on how to enable a double opt-in signup method. So I would like to have a two step signup workflow: In step 1, a potential subscriber fills out and submits the online signup form or is added manually in the backend. In step 2, they'll immediately receive a confirmation email and click a link to verify their email, which then changes it's state. Is there a standard solution for something like this?

    Thanks a lot for your help. Kind regards

    Hi Nora!

    Thanks for using the package!

    Well, at the moment there is no built in support for double opt-in - we do have it in the backlog but I can't say when it will be implemented.

    Until then, you have some solutions.

    1. If you are fine with the double optin only for the front end you could store the email that opts in in a temp-table in the db, and when the confirmation-link in the email is clicked just add the email to the maling list using our API: http://support.newsletterstudio.org/customer/en/portal/articles/1053101-front-end-api

    You could implement this with your own code - if you have Umbraco Forms you could have a look at this article as well: https://24days.in/umbraco-cms/2016/umbraco-forms-and-newsletter-studio/

    1. If you need this every time a new email is being added you could "hijack" our data layer using a custom "Global Factory" and change the implementation of the add-method for the newsletter studio-repository. This is quite a hacky solution but i would work, more info about this here: https://github.com/enkelmedia/NewsletterStudioContrib/tree/master/Newsletter%20Studio%20V2/NewsletterStudioContrib/Factory

    Hope this helps you!

    FYI due to the GDPR regulations we're going to need to have something for double-opt-in really. At the moment we're using the Added status as they've not consented yet and trigger our own email but NLS should really block the customer from even seeing the record.

    Hi Tim!

    Thanks for reaching out. We do have a work item in the backlog around this, it might be a new status or a temporary table for storing the tokens.

    I can't say when this will be released so if you really need something right now - I would go with a simple solution like my first example above.

    Sorry for this.

    Hi all,

    What is the current update on all this please?

    Are we able to create double opt in functionality with Umbraco Forms / Contour Forms - or are these features redundant due to GDPR as of next month?

    @ed we built our own in the end which creates another table which stores a Guid against the subscription. Works well although I don't like the way it works when subscribing to multiple lists atm as it sends multiple emails which seems overkill
