This is a modification of Contribution 2809 Stats Products Notifications and meant to work with Contribution 2515 New Product Notification (That provides the user with the option to watch whole categories instead of receiving notifications on single products only)


The Purpose of this contribution is to provide the admin a report that shows all users that have categories on their watchlist.
And enable the admin to contact these users directly from reports page. As well as to show the admin which categories are being
watched and how often they are on watchlists.


To use this contribution you must have contribution # 2515 Category Notification http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/2515 installed and working.


In my version of 2515 Category Notification I have disabled the function that a user receives a message everytime when a new product is added
to a specific category. I have 20-30 new products per month with a total of 2500 products so many customers ended up receiving 5-10 notices a week
per email. That appeared to be just a little too much to be helpful ;)

Therefore I recommend to just juse the 2515 contribution to allow customers to watch a whole category and admin sends out manual newsletters
out of this reporting tool that tells him who watches a specific category and how often this category is being watched.
