Sendy puts all the power at the user's fingertips, but that also means we have to figure out ways to implement features ourselves.
How do y'all handle segmentation of lists based on user choice?
Take some site like artofmanliness.com for example: you can receive daily email with a blog post or a weekly digest.
Here's the options I see:
Are there others? Which do you use, and why?
I think the concatenation of checkbox values into a single Custom Field is a good idea, because
It requires some pre-processing to concatenate the values, though. Like a form action handler proxy that gets the raw form data, and then forwards the values in concatenated form to Sendy, since Sendy doesn't support the convention to combine all values of inputs ending with , e.g. Frequency. When you select multiple values, Sendy stores the last one from the parameter list. Until a feature to handle multi-selection form fields differently is added, custom scripts to pre-process the form values are required.
Sendy support staff Ben answered via email after I asked this same question: their recommendation is to use multiple custom fields. So for the AoM example, you'd have [daily,fallback=] and [weekly,fallback=] and then segmentize based on the non-emptiness of these fields.
