I'm about to lose it here so hopefully someone here can help me.
I'm working in D8 and I would like to allow users of a certain role (Managers) administrate new site users. There is a permission for that and it works fine, but I can't find a way to send an email to users of the Managers role. It seems that they will only send to the Administrator account (me).
Some people online suggested that I might use Rules to get this to work for me, but this has made things even more confusing. I started down the path with the event being "After saving new user". I click "Add Action" and pick "Send Email". Some screenshots have shown me that in previous versions there might be a "Send Email to Role" option, but that's gone here for some reason.
I'm now at a "Send To" field, which can use the Data Selector. I can't quite use the Data Selector to get to a role. I can choose "user.role" or "user.roles", but then the autocomplete kind of gives up on me. "user.roles" will start giving me numbers after or "entity", but nothing gets me to sending an email to all users with a specific role.
Does anyone know how to get this to work? I'm not married to the Rules module. It just seemed to be the only option because Drupal won't send the default emails to anyone that isn't Account 1.
