Hi Praveen,

You can create a public group for your article type. Whenever a user selects the check box you can add that user to the group using trigger.

Create a WF on the Article type and select the wf action as email alert and you can select the public group you have created.

Thanks

Thanks Prakashb for your quick response. Can you please send the trigger code. I am new in development.

Actually creating a public group and add users to that group won't work. Public groups won't allow Customer Community Login users to be added to it.

This limitation is described here:

Is there any other option to alert users when an article is published?
