Notification settings for threads

By Christian Scheuer @chrscheuer2020-10-19 16:14:34.236Z

Hi @KajMagnus

Apologies, I can't seem to find the thread we were discussing this in.

The default notification setting for threads in which only direct replies will give a notification is causing me to miss an increasing amount of important replies from users.
This is becoming quite a problem for us, since users don't understand why we don't reply to them.

I think you mentioned it could be made possible to control this at a site-wide level. Essentially what we need is for the Notifications setting to switch to "Every post" on a thread that you've contributed to. You can then always switch it back when needed (I'm starting to do this more and more as well).

By thread, I mean what you in the API call a page.

    I'll fix, new version upcoming in two or three days (is the plan, just some testing left to do).

    Thereafter, when one posts one's first reply on a page (or "topic" or "thread"), one gets subscribed to that page: notified about all new posts anywhere one the page.

    (Meanwhile, there's the Notifications: ... button just below the Original Post, where you can change to Notifications: Every Post — although it seems to me its almost impossible to not forget this sometimes.)

      Now I've implemented this + auto tests — took longer than what I thought. I have in mind to deploy to Prod on Sunday, then this feature will become available for you to use (and to Ty .io tomorrow).

      (sorry it took a bit longer)

          @chrscheuer Now I just deployed this to Prod, so now you can change your notification settings over at SoundFlow.

          If you change the settings for the Core Members group, or for the All Members group — then, that should affect all core members, or all members (they then won't need to do anything themselves or know about it).
