Improved Following and Notifications!
Improved category following and notification preference settings!
We've made it easier to focus on the topics you care about most by replacing the Category Following and Notifications with a new, cohesive experience. Here's what we changed:
New visual indicator:
The new bell icon will appear when you have clicked into a category.
New notification functions in the Follow feature, including:
- Follow on my homepage
- This refines your list of categories to only display the ones you are interested in (no email notifications).
- Notifies you of all new discussions posted
- Discussions and Comments
- As the title suggests, you will be notified of all new posts and comments added to all new & existing posts within the category.
- Removes this category from your My Followed Category List, and disables the notification
Simplified Notification Preferences:
In the Notification Preferences page, you will see a list of categories that you chose to follow. In here, you can choose to receive email notifications and/or popups that appear when signed into the community.
For community members that have followed categories in the past, and/or have set notification preferences - all of your settings will remain.
