Small change request for Notification Settings

1 Reply

I'm not sure how the powers that be prefer to get feature requests, so I thought I would start here. Hopefully, this is a small change.

Over in Notification Settings, I would like to be able to select a different frequency for "a topic I monitor" vs "a forum I monitor is updated. 

Here is why I want this:

I want to be notified immediately of any topics that I started or posted to, without requiring the reply to have an @mention of my name. This keeps the conversation on a specific topic going while folks are still online.

For forums I monitor, I want only daily frequency. Right now, I'm getting "instant" emails for all new posts in the "Tax Liens, Notes..." forum and I don't really want that. I do want to stay connected to many forums, but not with instant updates. BUT, I don't want to miss a reply to topic I started, so I keep this setting at "Instantly"

Please consider making "forum is updated" a separate setting from "topic is updated".

P.S What I really want is to have a separate frequency for every topic or forum I monitor. Many online forum software packages let users manage this with a "subscriptions" interface similar to the "Followed Topics" and "Followed Forums" UI you have now. I subscribe to a forum or a topic, I have a default notification for all new subscriptions, and I can always go back and change notification frequencies for a specific subscription. But, that may be more complex of a UI than BiggerPockets wants to present.
