I would like to be able to send a notification email to the office manager when a member joins through an online form. The office manager should be notified for each new member.

How can I do this?

The membership form is set up as a contribution page.

I'm using CiviCRM 4.6.10 on Drupal 7.41.

If you use confirmation mails, it should be fairly simple:

  1. go to "Contributions" --> "Manage Contribution Pages"
  2. next to the contribution page in question, use the link "configure" and then "Thank-You and receipting"
  3. tick the box "Email Receipt to Contributor" (if not ticked already) enter your office manager's email-address in the cc or bcc field

You can use the advanced setting in a profile to email someone each time it it used. See "Notify when profile form is submitted?" in screenshot.

As an alternative you could also use the CiviRules extension (https://civicrm.org/extensions/civirules) in combination with the extension for the email API (https://civicrm.org/extensions/e-mail-api). You could then set up a rule with membership added as a trigger, the membership type and/or status as conditions if required and the email send as action.
