The Rules module is a module that allows site architects to create action/reaction events that would normally require writing custom code. Some of the things you can do with the rules module include:

1) Sending an email to a site editor anytime someone creates a new article or comment.

2) Automatically assigning a special role to anyone who creates a new account. 

3) Automatically unpublish content after a certain time frame.

4) Automatically assign a node to someone other than the author. 

Let's use this discussion to talk about the kinds of things you can do with the rules module. 

Intended Audience: 
  • All skill levels
  • Intermediate
  • Website Architects (no code)
  • Technical (even if no code)
