Is there any tag or token for newsletter unsubscription that I can include in the email sent to all user who do not wish to receive email?

If no, what if user do not wish to receive any email ? what they can do ? The email will go to every user all the time with role as users?

Hi Super,
in MonoX there is no way for the users in the group to unsubscribe from this newsletter by default. The premise is that the administrator should control who gets the newsletter based on roles. So when you sent out the newsletter to users in 'Users' role, you've decided to send it to everyone in the system. 
The basic use case for this scenario is to create a new role and send the newsletter to all users in that role. Assigning users to that role needs to be custom handled (e.g. adding the users to the role from the administration, or coding logic which will enable users to add/remove themselves from that group - effectively subscribing/unsubscribing from the newsletter).

Regards,
Vedran

Yes, I understand that but since MonoX is listed as a CMS solution and all CMS solution out there provide the feature of newsletter. As right now assigning thousands of users another role manually is not an ideal solution and then taking the role off from them to unsubscribe is a very slow manual process.

I think this is an import feature that every CMS solution offers and Monox team should also consider addition of this feature in the solution for upcoming 5.1 version  release.

Since MonoX is a CMS and social networking solution, it makes the feature of newsletter more important as many  times site admins might have announcements for user.

Hello,

There are various ways newsletters are implemented in various CMS solutions, supporting and covering all scenarios is usually not possible in any CMS. We will consider this suggestion for a future release.

What is the fastest way to assign role to all users ? can you please help me with the sql script that I can run to assign a role to all users.

By default, all registered people have "Users" role.

Fastest way is to use a sql script. You should import the data into the aspnet_UsersInRoles table.
