GWG site currently uses store and ubercart 6x-2x which is version 2 of  Ubercart for Drupal 6.

The notifications are implemented through the “conditional actions” feature:

“The Conditional Actions module is at the heart of how your Ubercart store makes certain decisions and performs various actions. For example, it allows you to decide through a web interface who should be charged a specific tax, when free shipping should be made available, and what happens to orders once they've been paid for. Normally these things require custom coding to accomplish, but the user interface provided by the Conditional Actions system lets anyone build this business logic into their Ubercart store.”


The conditional actions can be accessed by the system administrator or the store administrator.

1.       Log in as administrator

2.       Click the wrench icon in the upper left corner of the window and open the admin menu

3.       Click the “Administer” menu item

4.       Click the “Store Administration” menu item

5.       Click the “Conditional Actions” menu item.


The screen should look like the picture below:


Each of the conditional items can be viewed and changed by clicking on “edit”

The screen will look like the picture below:

This screen describes the “trigger” or activity that will cause the “action” to take place.

Note that its status must be “enabled” for anything to happen.

Any changes must be saved at the bottom of the page.

Clicking on the “Action” tab will show the action that takes place when the trigger event occurs.

A typical action tab is shown in the next picture:


The actions inside the “Actions” box will take place whenever the trigger event that we looked at on the “meta data” tab takes place.  In the case above, there is one action called “Email an order invoice”

Clicking on the link “Action: Email an order invoice” will bring up the details of the action as shown in the picture below:


On this page the sender and the reciepients are defined.  There can be multiple recipients as shown.

The invoice template selection determines the format of the email body.

The subject dialog box defines the subject of the email.

If the action includes sending an email message, the format of the email message will also be defined on this page and will look like the picture below:


The items in brackets are variables which the website software fills in with the current information.
