New notification options for discussion boards

 

Improvement

 

 

We've always prevented discussion board notifications from being sent to the person who authored those posts or replies, but if you enjoy sending emails to yourself, you can now;-)

To self-notify, add a new notification type, then select "Author of notification" as the recipient. Note that you can have multiple subscriptions to the same notification type, which allows you to select "Activity users and commenters" in addition to "Author of notification" — see the example below:

This works with any notification that posts to a discussion board, namely:

  • Activity discussion board activity
  • Activity reporting period discussion board activity
  • Activity reporting period status changed
