Ability to subscribe to announcements

Lee Roquet shared this idea 3 years ago
Completed

We have a lot of our customers asking if they can subscribe to announcements so they can get an email when a new one is posted. We use the announcements a lot for product releases, video series, and sharing company news from our teams.

Hi, Lee,

the solution of your idea requires complex approach.

Actually your request is directly related to email marketing. So there could be 2 ways to find out the solution:

  1. to make integration with such kind of services (MailChimp e.g.);
  2. or implement mass email notifications but not only for new announcements - users could get emails if they subscribe to specific topic or knowledge base category etc.

Nevertheless internal discussion will be organized at once we implement push notifications.

Thank you for sharing the idea with us.

Hi all,

we've implemented the ability for users to subscribe via RSS for announcements, all new topics or new topics in specific category.

Just click RSS icon on the required page and you would get notifications of the topics/announcements activity in RSS reader of your browser.

The option is available in 4.5 version that was launched yesterday.

Hope this solution will meet your requirements.

Kind regards

Unfortunately it does NOT work for private communities!

Hi, we have a private forum and would like to announce as soon as a new beta version is available for users to download. We would like to notify all users in this case, since they are part of this specific program and the sending is covered by our data protection policies. Can that be done without the user having to subscribe himself to RSS feed?

Hello Pedro,

We have discussed your use case and understand your approach, but as we don't provide mass mailing solution that will affect the quality of our services, we can develop such feature on custom paid basis as separate module.

If you'd like to find out more details, please submit ticket to our support team and we'll discuss details and provide estimation on development of mailing module update in order to send updates on announcements and new ideas to all users.
