Hi,

As I understand things when I publish a new page on a site hosted by Voice an email notification goes out to all members of the site for whom notifications are enabled.

Is there any way in inhibiting this? If not would it be possible to add one?

Normally notifications make sense when adding new content to a site, but sometimes I want to make organisational changes to the site, perhaps splitting one page into three and I dont want to tell the users if there is really nothing new to look at.

What I am looking for might be a "Save & Publish Silently" button next to "Save" and "Save & Publish".

Have I missed a feature somewhere or is this something that would be useful to others?

Many thanks

Dave

We're looking at making some changes to notifications from the CMS soon. This will include better control over when a notification is sent, and what is in it.

More likely I think it'd be a checkbox that you'd enable to specifically choose to send a notification to users for the piece of content that you're publishing.

Thanks Jo,

That sounds really positive. 

Incidentally I posted a bug relating to notifications on updates to an FAQ. I am not now sure that this was in response to the update. I had earlier created an FAQ in my test site and it could, on reflection, have been a delayed notification from that.

Many thanks

Dave

Hi Joe,

Thanks. Been something been asking Central Bedfordshire Council for a while. It would make sense to have a little bit mre control.

 

Cheers,

James

We too would be very happy to have a bit more control over who gets what notifications.

On this tack, I've recently set up a private area of our site, but don't seem to be getting notifications about updates. I checked my notification preferences but there isn't a separate tickbox for this area. 

Thanks

Hi Joe,

Happy New Year,

Is this issue any nearer the top of the pile please. It really would be helpful to have some control over whether email notifications are sent. 

Many thanks

Dave
