Why Get Email Notifications for Posts Pending Review in WordPress?
When you first start your WordPress blog you’ll probably do everything yourself. You’ll come up with all the ideas for your content, write and proofread the posts, and publish them when they’re finished.
As your blog grows, you may get other writers involved in contributing to your blog. That can be a lot more work!
You’ll need to collaborate with them and keep them on track. You’ll have to become more deliberate when planning and scheduling your content. And you’ll have to review each article before you publish it.
There are plenty of ways you can improve the editorial process. One thing that really helps is to receive a notification when a post is pending review.
Without these notifications, you’ll have to constantly visit your blog’s dashboard to check up on the progress of each post.
You could set up email notifications for all post changes on WordPress, but with a busy multi-author blog, that may be too many emails.
Luckily, there is an excellent plugin that makes setting up more specific notifications easy.
