Hi, we have set up an SMTP server so that users can suscribe to pages and get emails whevener a page has been updated. My question is where users emails are stored? Are they stored in the Optimizely database?
That's a question that will be very specific to your build. When you say users, are you talking about strict CMS users or website users in general? Are you using the default Microsoft Identities solution for users that comes with CMS 12 or are you using another authentication method, e.g. Azure Ad?
Ah, yes, it's a subscription service for end users, so the users of the website. Let's say I'm creating a web page for posting news pages, articles etc. An end user should be able to subscribe to a page and get emails whenever that page has been modified. No log in is required for the users of the website. So, basically you'll have button on an article page where you can decide to write in your email to get notified whenever a page has been updated.
Yeah there's nothing default that's a very custom requirement a Mark says.
In addition to Scott's recommendations, you will also need to consider the following for compliance and functionality:
While I am all for using the platform and doing as much as you can in the system.
If your budget doesn't allow the custom developement there are exisiting solutions out there that do this type of functionality for you.
