Our organization has numerous users set as “Publishers” within the Publisher Lite add-on.

In each entry, I have a custom field which allows the Editor to select which Publisher should review and approve the entry they’re editing.

I would like to include that field’s value as part of the approval email template.

See attached screenshot for my example.

Hi, Felix. I’m probably not going to go down the path of including custom fields in a template like this. I do have another extension that is unreleased that you may be interested in for scenarios like this. You can choose on a per channel basis who receives approvals. It isn’t per-entry like this, but it is per-channel, which might suite your needs. I can send you a copy of it if you want to try it out.

We would definitely benefit from the extension. Please send. Thanks!

Also, if this is not an upcoming feature, can you give me a hint as to how I could implement this one field’s value into my approval emails?

In Service/Approval/EntryApproval.php line 239, I can see there are parameters to pull information from the draft being sent for approval.

Is there a line I could add here to pull in the draft entry’s field value as a parameter?

I do not recommend editing a file like that, and if you do, I could void any support because I don’t know what you’re editing. You’re better off writing your own extension using the publisher_approval_send_options hook that is in the ApprovalAbstract.php file. If you’re going to go down that path though you won’t need this new extension.
