In the previous parts, we’ve learned how to:
set up a community profile
look up info in the community
start a conversation
reply and react
mark as solved
Today, you’ll learn how to receive notifications about activities in specific categories in case you wish to pay extra attention to selected spaces in the community.
Navigate over to Preferences
Note: In the Notifications tab, you can
- set up your notification schedule
- tweak your DM preferences
Navigate to Categories and choose the categories you want to watch, track or mute.
Note: Let me rephrase the definitions here a little since they might be a bit confusing.
Watch: You’ll get notified of all new topics & replies to the topics from a selected category + a count of new replies will also appear next to the topic.
Track: You will automatically track all topics in these categories. A count of new replies will appear next to the topic.
Watch First Post: You’ll get notified of all new topics, but not the replies to the topics.
Mute: You will not be notified of anything about new topics in these categories, and they will not appear on the categories or latest pages.
The same process applies for getting notified about content with a specific tag.
Sit back and wait for the notifications to roll in.
