#4381 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Send a email when a speaker apply to a call for speakers

In a recent call to speakers, I sent several proposals. As I did not receive any kind of response from the organization, I contacted them and they told me that they had not received any proposal. I'm sure I sent them because I write down in a document all the proposals I send.

Each time a speaker sends a proposal in a call to speakers, I think it is interesting that the system sends an email with all the information you enter in the form, so the speaker has confirmation of the request he has sent.

Which camp was it for? The organizers should have a record of it in the Feedback screen in wp-admin, even if the email notification they're sent didn't get received for some reason.

For the actual request of sending a confirmation to the person submitting the form, the best way to do that might be to make the proposal to Jetpack, to add an option to do that for all contact forms. I think that'd make more sense than us adding it just to this specific form.

If they don't want to add a feature like that, though, then we could still consider it.

For what it's worth, knowing of a time when this happened to a speaker (where the organisers 'never received' a speaker submission) I went and looked in their Feedback section and indeed found the original submissions and the resubmitted ones a month later.

I suspect in those cases, even if an auto-email was sent to the speaker saying "Yep, we got it!" the email may not have actually made it to the camp's inbox, or been filtered out on it's way there.
