BuddyBoss Reply by Email allows members of your BuddyPress site to respond to comments and messages directly from their email account.
Imagine this scenario: one of your members gets an email notification about another member messaging them on your site. Usually, they would need to go to your site and log into their account before they can respond to this message. That takes effort, so the member sees the notification and thinks to themselves that maybe, eventually, they'll get around to responding to it. Then, considering that they also receive notifications from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social networking sites, they'll probably forget all about it.
But with BuddyBoss Reply by Email, your members won't need to jump through all those hoops. They can simply reply to the email notification, and their response to the email will be automatically posted on your site. No need to open a new tab, go to your site, and log in. That means members will be much more likely to respond to messages immediately.
BuddyBoss Reply by Email can be used to respond to the following notifications:
- Activity posts
- Activity comments
- bbPress forum topics
- WordPress comments
When you make it easier for your members to interact with each other, they will interact with each other more often. This provides your current members with a more engaging, enjoyable experience, and it gives prospective members more of a reason to join.
