Feature Request: Email Notifications on Group Activity (opt-in by default)

Description

I would to request email notifications for group activity à la Facebook Groups, on by default with easy opt-out options.

I know this feature partially exists in bbPress, but I find its UI really clunky and cumbersome, and the notifications are not on by default, requiring often novice users to find a checkbox to receive notifications.

To me, this is an important feature for those of us trying to build fledgling community sites, since users are not likely to manually sign on to your site just to check their notifications.

Pleae don't hesitate to contact me if I can provide any additional details. Thanks in advance.

Hi @intp5

I don't think this is a bad idea. Do you have a suggestion for what text the email would contain -- can you come up with an example of what you have in mind? Thanks. :)

Replying to DJPaul:

Thanks, @DJPaul! Perhaps something simple, like:
_

Subject = [username] has commented in your group, [group name], at [blog/site name].

Body = Hi [username],

[user name] has posted a new comment in a group you belong to, [group name], at [blog/site name].

[Click here to view and/or respond now.]

---

[click here to unsubscribe from notifications on this group]

Does this work? Thanks! ~Nathan

  • Keywords trac-tidy-2018 added

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
