* Collect arbitrary fields
* Save data locally
* Save data to Salesforce.com (requires salesforcepfgadapter)
* List signatures within your Plone site
* Customizable thank-you letter to sender

How it works

Megaphone builds on top of several fantastic Plone products to do its work
without reinventing the wheel.

* The heart of Megaphone is `PloneFormGen`_, which provides the core
form-handling capabilities.
* Because Megaphone actions are a fairly complicated PloneFormGens with lots of
defaults, we've built `collective.z3cform.wizard`_ which lets us make a very
user-friendly wizard for building out the advocacy letter. The wizard
can be run and then re-run to let a user change the settings. More advanced
users can directly edit the PloneFormGen fields and objects to create more
complex setups.
* Salesforce integration is via the `Salesforce PFG Adapter`_ and the
underlying `Salesforce Base Connector`_.

Megaphone has been tested with Plone 3.3 and Plone 4.

Adding to buildout

Megaphone has several dependencies. These should get pulled in automatically
if you add the collective.megaphone egg to your buildout. _However_, you need
to make sure that you get versions of the dependencies that are compatible with
your version of Plone. To do so, you may extend the following known good sets
of version pins:

For Plone 4::

extends = http://good-py.appspot.com/release/collective.megaphone/2.0?plone=4.0.1

eggs =

For Plone 3::

extends = http://good-py.appspot.com/release/collective.megaphone/2.0?zope=2.10.x

eggs =

Of course, you may need to adjust the specified Plone version, or create a
derivative set of version pins if the ones in this set conflict with those
recommended for some other add-on.

Activating the add-on

After running buildout and starting your Zope instance, install
collective.megaphone via the Add/Remove Products configlet in Plone Site Setup.

Now you should be able to add an 'Action Letter' via the add item menu.

Make sure that you configure your Plone site's e-mail settings before trying
to send a letter.

Salesforce export

In order to create a letter that saves contact information to Salesforce, you
must install the Products.salesforcepfgadapter and
Products.salesforcebaseconnector eggs.


What's New in This Release:

* Raise AT ObjectInitializedEvent and ObjectEditedEvent when the wizard is finished.

* Updated the test setup to use a layer so that it can be extended by Megaphone plugins more easily.

* Added an upgrade step to remove the old "optional-recipients" field which is no longer needed.

* Revamped the UI of the recipients wizard step. Recipient settings are now configured in an overlay.

* Introduced the concept of pluggable "recipient sources". Each recipient source has its own settings, can provide content for the Megaphone form, and is queried for recipients when the form is submitted. The old recipient functionality
(with "required" and "optional" recipients) has been efactored into the "standard" recipient source.

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
