Search Alert


A great improvement would be a feature that allows users to set up an mail alert for new search results. Such a feature is very popular f.e. among real estate portals. If it were an add on, I'm sure many customers would be happy to pay extra for it.

Are you referring to email notifications?

Could probably set this up outside of the facetwp plugin. Plenty of plugins to notify users of new posts that meet certain requirements.

Content Notify is probably your best bet: https://contentnotify.com/

If that plugin doesn't integrate with FacetWP, perhaps their team could consider adding it.

My biggest concern would be server load. Having to calculate whether a post matches against potentially thousands of saved facet searches could prove EXTREMELY server intensive.

Thank you for the recommendations! I will talk to the developer of ContentNotify. Server load is an important point. Maybe it is possible to define a routine so that the calculations and mail sending are done only at night.
