When I user saves a piece of "my_custom_content_type" I want to send the user an email, basically "your content has been submitted, will be published after review" I know this is a core feature for webforms, but what is the best way to accomplish this for Custom Content Types?


One easy way to do that is with the Rules module

  • Event: After saving new content
  • Action: Send email.

Here's an example Rules export (for article) that can be imported via the UI at admin/config/workflow/rules/reaction/import

{ "rules_review_notification" : {
    "LABEL" : "Send review notification email",
    "PLUGIN" : "reaction rule",
    "OWNER" : "rules",
    "REQUIRES" : [ "rules" ],
    "ON" : { "node_insert--article" : { "bundle" : "article" } },
    "DO" : [
      { "mail" : {
          "to" : [ "node:author:mail" ],
          "subject" : "[Notification] Content submitted for review",
          "message" : "Your content has been submitted and will be published after review."
