    After the successful installation, you have to run these commands in the Magento2 root directory.

    First command – php bin/magento setup:upgrade

    Second command –  php bin/magento setup:di:compile

    Third Command – php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

    After running the commands, you have to flush the cache from Magento admin panel by navigating through->System->Cache management as shown below.

    First of all the admin has to navigate to Stores->Configuration->Webkul->Out Of Stock Notification. Then, four sections will appear:

    1.  Enable Out of Stock Notifications

     Enable Module on Frontend

    The admin can enable or disable the module on the front end.

    On doing so, the admin allows the customers to add their email addresses so as to get the notification as soon as the product gets back in stock.

        2.  General Settings

    Select Notification Method

    The admin can set the notification method as Auto or Manual. In Auto, the notification emails will be automatically sent to the user whenever the product gets back in stock. In Manual, the admin has to manually notify the users.

         3.  Low Stock Notification Settings

    Low stock notification is used to send out low stock notification to the subscribers whenever the inventory of a product(for which they subscribed for the In Stock notification) reaches the minimum specified level.

    For example, when the inventory of a product gets below the specified limit(if set as 5 units) then the Subscribers will receive a low stock notification for the same product for which they initially subscribed for the in stock notification.

    The chosen receivers will receive the email notification for Low Stock.

    Enable Low Stock Notification

    The admin can enable or disable the low stock notification. This means that if the low stock notification has been enabled by admin then the users will receive the notifications whenever a product gets low in stock.

    The admin has to set the quantity of low stock notification.

    Select Low Stock Notification Template

    In this field, the admin has to select an email template for low stock notification.

    As the admin clicks on the ‘Add New Source‘ button, a New Source page opens up.

    The admin will have to add the General details, Contact Info, the Address Data as shown in the image below, so as to create a new source.

    On saving the details, the source which the admin creates (here, United States), is visible under the source list as shown in the image below.

    Further, the admin can assign stock to the sources by navigating thorugh Store > Inventory > Stocks.

    The admin will find a Add New Stock tab to create a new stock as shown in the image below.

    Also, on creating a new stock, the main website must be chosen as shown in the image below.

    Frontend – Out Of Stock Notification

    Guest User

    If the admin has enabled the module on frontend from the admin panel then the guest user has to enter his/her email id then click on Notify me option if he/she wants to get notified about when the out of stock product gets back in stock and available for purchase.

    If the admin has disabled the module on frontend from the admin panel then the guest user will not be able to enter the email id for receiving the notification.

    Registered User

    Whenever registered users visit an out of stock product page, they can see that their email id is already been filled in the email id field, they can also change the email id if they want and after that, they can click on ‘Notify Me‘ to receive notification when the product gets back in stock.

    After entering email id then clicking on ‘Notify Me‘, the customer will get a confirmation message, as shown in the screenshot below.

    When a user will click on ‘Notify me’ he/she will receive a notification email as shown below:

    Configurable Product

    For configurable products also, if any user visits the configurable product’s page and any of their associated product is out of stock, then, the user can request for that product and will be notified for that particular associated product which is out of stock.

    Also, either the registered user or the guest user moves their cursor over the email id field. An info message in the black box will be visible to the users.

    Note: If Configurable Product itself is ‘Out of Stock’ then ‘Out of Stock Notification’ works the same as it works for Simple Products.

    Email Notification

    When the product gets back in stock, the customers will receive a notification email on their registered email id.

    Backend – MANAGING NOTIFICATION REQUESTS

    Admin has to go to Out of Stock Notification –> See All Requests to view all the notification requests made on the web store.

    Under All Requests, the admin can view all the requests with the user email id, notification status and product name on which the request is made.

    From here the admin can manually notify the user by selecting the user and then selecting action as Send Notification. The admin can also delete a request from here.

    That’s all for the Out Of Stock Notification for Magento 2. Furthermore, if you still have any issue feel free to add a ticket and let us know your views to make the module better http://webkul.uvdesk.com/

    I’m not able to find out how translations work.

    I have added multiple mail templates for different languages, but all the notifications are coming in one language associated to one store view.

    So for a logged in user, based on what information is decided from which store view the mails have to be send? Multiple options in my opinion:
    1. Account created in [store view]?
    2. Active [store view]?
    3. Other?

    Please let me know, thanks!

    • Archana Tiwari
      Hello There,
      As per the query, for logged-in users, the mails will be sent from the Active store view. For further queries regarding the same, you can mail us at support@webkul.com

    Is there a way to have the email sign-up appear when “salable quantity” reaches 0? Since the addition of the salable quantity column, we’ve had items that show as OOS, but there’s no signup available until the regular “quantity” reaches 0, so some of our most popular items are stuck in limbo over the weekend.

    Can we set different threshold numbers for different products?
    Ex.
    Product1 set to notify when stock drops below 5
    Product2 set to notify when stock drops below 1
