This URL:

.../consumers/unsubscribe/id:123

is embedded in an email, and allows for a user to opt out of future emails. On this same page, the "unsubscribe" view, I have a simple form with a textarea and a submit button, and I would like to allow the user to submit feedback as to why they are unsubscribing.

But I am not storing the data anywhere. Just emailing it. So how would I do this?

Thank you.

Hi,

Add the Email component to your consumers controller. In your unsubscribe action, add something similar to this after record deletion:

if ($this->Model->del($id)) {
$this->Email->from    = 'Somebody <somebody@example.com>';
$this->Email->to      = 'Somebody Else <somebody.else@example.com>';
$this->Email->subject = 'Test';
$this->Email->send($this->data[modelName][textareaName]);
}

Change the variables to reflect what you want and there you will receive an email when someone unsubscribe.
