Extends and is dependent to
Activate the module. ;-)
Status / Known problems
No known problems, pretty well coverage available. Actively supported / developed.
Currently no more actively developed.
Version 6.x-0.1 is tested and works, but has this fairly important flaw: #331080: unsubscribe reverts back after cron run.
Version 6.x-2.0-dev fixes this, but requires the 6.x-2.x-dev version of Simplenews. Still very limited efficiency and doesn't scale well. Stresses cron. Further work on the API is needed #536620: Subscriber API: separate subscribers from newsletter management and allow other modules to define subscribers.
After installing, extra options are available on the settings page for each newsletter at admin/config/services/simplenews Choose role(s) to keep synchronized with your newsletter subscriptions here. If no role is selected, the newsletter subscription works manually as normal.
Don't add manual subscribers to synced newsletters.
