We don't let you send emails in the onEdit function because that function runs as the person who made the edit to the cell... If we let you send email from that function, then we'd have to pop up a big warning to the user that a script was trying to access their email. Think of that, innocently typing data into a cell, and next thing you get a scary dialog warning that something is trying to access your email... not a good experience. Similarly, you're restricted from accessing several other services that require authentication in onEdit and onOpen - basically anything that needs a user context, like Calendar, Email, etc. We are working on an event system - as bdsystem suggests it is similar to the way we currently send change notification emails, but far more versatile.

I have a site set up for my son's soccer team. Today the manager sends email notifications to the team and I update the site with news and event information (embedded Google Calendar). I'd like to set up a way for the manager to post to the site and have the site notify the team directly via email. Not everyone has Google accounts and the technical savvy scale is varied if you know what I mean... The most important things to notify parents of are schedule changes that are posted to the calendar, travel directions to games and announcements (forms to fill out etc.) I have a couple of questions: 1) How can I send Google Sites notifications to my Gmail account and then forward it to the Google Group?
