Friday Finextra Updates: Notifications

We have completed another minor revision to the Community Portal, that's aimed at keeping Community members more up-to-date with one-other:

First, previously, when a Community Member sent a message to another, the only way the recipient knew this was to log in and check their messages. The current Finextra Message policy is to remove messages after 30 days, so potentially, if the recipient hadn't logged into the community, he/she may have missed their new messages. From now on when a Member sends a message, the Portal will now send an automated courtesy email to the recipient informing them of a new Message.

Second, Community members will now also receive a courtesy email when another member comments on their blog.

And finally, Community members will now also receive a courtesy email when another member comments upon a blog that they've already commented upon.

Of course, we at Finextra, recognise that Community Members may not wish to receive courtesy emails for any, or all, of these actions. To disable notifications, all you need to do is log into the Community and deselect the relevant tick box.
