Add a hyperlink to the space navigation. You can link to internal or external web pages. Enter the Tab name and Tab URL. Upload or choose an icon. Then click Save.
We are trying to increase engagement in our instance of Communifire. A problem we're trying to solve is that stuff is happening on spaces, but nobody knows about it.
1. My first communication to my users was that content like blogs, articles, etc need to be interacted with before you get notified about activity on them. So comment or like on something and you'll get notified via email and by bell notification when something happens on that content. But users want to "subscribe" to all content within an entire space. But to my knowledge, there's no way to do that aside from daily/weekly digest emails. Is this correct?
2. I would perfer it if I could get digest emails only, but not emails for every single action taken in Communifire that apply to me. Just a notification bell is fine. But if I have digest emails checked ON in preferences, and "Do not send me email notifications" checked, then I get no digest emails.
Under your Manage Space settings, there are two options called Auto-subscribe new members to daily summary emails and Auto-subscribe new/existing members to all forums.
These options can make sure that everyone is getting the emails that are sent out from Communifire for each space.
2) For this, we have a system property that addresses exactly that. It is called SendDigestsWithoutEmailNotifyEnabled. Setting this in your System Properties to True will allow that preference to be overridden.
I hope this helps,Foster
For #1, "Auto Subscribe new members to daily summary emails"
1) Yes, that applies to all members of the space, regardless of if they are new or old.
2) No, they are the same.
Okay I understand. So if they have daily digest turned off, enabling this won't have any effect?
Thank you for all the info!
That is correct, unless you have SendDigestsWithoutEmailNotifyEnabled set to true in your system properties. In that case, their email preferences would be overridden for digests.
Always happy to help out,Foster
There's still an aspect of this that doesn't make sense to me. In my preferences, I have "Do not send me email notifications" checked.
However, I still received email notifications for any content that I follow. I thought this would turn this off and only the notification bell within communifire would be triggered. Is there a setting I'm missing?
How recently did you change these preferences, and what kind of notifications are you still getting?
That preference has been selected in this way for 2 weeks or so.
The email I get is notifications about discussion activity with the discussion name as the Subject and then here's the body.

My understanding is that you should not receive that email. I will check in with my team and run a few tests to verify this.
Is this the only email that you are getting, or are you still getting all other email notifications?
I was getting emails for that discussion, so I unsubscribed from that topic. But now I am not getting emails for other content that I've followed. This is the way I prefer it, I'm just not sure what changed.
So un-subscribing worked for that one topic? Everything is now sending as you prefer correct?
Correct. I do not get emails for every single comment on posts I follow. But I'll get notified in the bell icon or via Digest email.
