I want to use Subscriptions so Admin users can subscribe to content, and then when pages are created (or “Marked as changed” in edit mode) an e-mail is sent to the subscribers based on a configurable e-mail template.
But I cant seem to find any information on what we need, how to set up the pages and where we can set up the subscribers etc. I can see the Scheduled task but nothing else.
Can anyone point me in a direction to set up instructions?
To be able to send emails for latest pages example news & events, make sure that users are subscribed to these pages and subscription is activated on parent nodes by selecting "Activate Subscription" from edit mode on a page.
In AlloyTech site, there is page called "Subscription" http://demo.episerver.com/en/News-and-Events/Subscription/ , there the users can subscribes to available pages.
See the subscription information in Editor's manuall. "Activate Subscription" & "Mark Page as Changed".http://world.episerver.com/Documents/Manuals/EPiServer%20CMS/EditorManuals/EPiServer%20CMS%206%20R2/Print/Editors%20Manual%20EPiServer%20CMS%206%20R2%20(English)_HighRes.pdf
Hope it helps.

Thanks for your replies. If I click on Settings for any page on the site I dont see Activate Subscription. The list only goes as far as Mark Page as Changed.
Do I need to add anything in the webconfig?
Your PageType needs to have a property named EPSUBSCRIBE (Selected/not selected) for this to work. If it's not there, add it.
It might already be there but hidden in edit mode. To check, do this:
Cool, great. Many thanks for all your help. :)
Hi, I have added it to my PageType and it doesnt show in the Settings or content tab.
Is there a webconfig setting I need to add?
You don't have to add anything in web.config to make the EPSUBSCRIBE property show.
When you created the property on one of your pagetypes, check that:
Adding this property is no different from adding any other pagetype property.
