Add option to email people about Terms of Use changes
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We say in the Terms that we will email users if they change significantly, but we don't actually have a way to do that. We need to add a feature that allows site administrators to do that.

  • only needs to be exposed to site admins, not coordinators, so putting it in the admin interface is fine
  • should be documented in docs/
  • must be a manual trigger, not an automatic one, because computers can't tell whether a change is "significant"

Depends on T147431.

Does this refer to per-partner ToU changes, or Library Card Platform ToU?

Either way, might be best to remove that note temporarily; this doesn't seem to be of high priority right now.

I wonder if we should broaden this to be a general ability to email everyone who had an account active in the last year. We could also use it to contact TWL editors en-masse about relevant changes.

Per more recent conversations, okay to replace this with simply requiring people to re-agree whenever a change deemed significant happens.
