It would be a good feature to have the availability to choose if send a report email to an arbitrary email address (newsletter administrator) when a new subscription is made.
Rules to the rescue:)
Maybe its time to start integrating rules as well.then usecases like those will be trivial to implement
Perhaps another use case for Rules:
I'd like to create a custom submission form that lets me better control the layout of fields, as well as have user's "sign-up" without receiving any newsletter (ie, keep whatever information they are giving us for statistics). I was trying to use Entityforms, but can't really inject the new newsletter subscriber w/o Rules Integration. (The idea was that if they kept the "Yes, please send me updates!" checkbox checked, they'd be added to that list, but if they unchecked it, they'd be added to a "DO NOT MAIL" list).
Of course, this test case might also be solved by having all the fields in fields, and having the selected mailing list be optional.
Alternatively, when new users register for the site, there could be a checkbox to automatically add them to various newsletters.
Definitely for 2.x
Certainly the following 2 actions should be available to Rules:
The first, for example, might be triggered when a user registers her account. Both will be helpful to un/subscribe users from/to lists when their roles change.
