It helps the admin to manage and keep a watch on WordPress new user registration. So, why is there a need to disable new user notification emails on your WordPress site?

Luckily, it isn’t too tough for site admins to disable new user notifications anymore. And that is only possible with the help of the RegistrationMagic plugin.

Using the “Email Notifications” feature of this WordPress registration forms plugin, you can now disable new user notification on your site very easily.

From “Global Settings”, go to the “Email Notifications” settings. This is where you can manage new user notifications as well as other general email notification settings. From notifying users about submission notes to setting up outgoing email handlers. This space is complete with all the email templates that one needs in their site. Here you can also choose between User External SMTP and default WordPress as outgoing email handlers. We are going to use this “Email Notifications” setting to disable new user notification emails on your WordPress site.

The Advantage of Global Settings

The “Global Settings” option controls every aspect of your forms that you create through this plugin. You can find various types of settings here, such as WordPress form security, External Integrations, User Accounts, and many more. The “Global Settings” page basically lets you manage all forms in your dashboard globally. Thus, you don’t have to work on each form individually. Apart from this, each form has its own dashboard which has the same settings as “Global Settings”. This lets you work on each of the forms singly. You might not want to set up payment for every form on your site. So, for example, you can choose to not activate WordPress form payment for every form on your site from “Global Settings”. So, you can select a particular form and set up the payment option for it from its dashboard.

Making Life Easy

The admins usually spend a lot of time managing their sites and ensuring their success. However, spending too much time on any single activity can take attention away from other important things. Like the development of the site. The admin has to look into the content to the products, to the users of the site. Hence, it becomes crucial to keep a few things off from the admin’s job. The new user notification being one of them. Apart from this, there are options to create new roles and set jobs for these roles with this plugin.

It is quite a challenging job to manage a user registration based WordPress site. These sites let the admin know the global reach of their business.

The contact forms can let you get the contact details of users. So that one can send daily updates and newsletters to these users.
