New Email Notification System for Connect Extension: Daily or Weekly Digest Now Available


First, thank you all for being a part of Connect Extension. It is wonderful to see the different online events being shared to the Learn calendar from around the country and all the excellent content that you create!

Since launching in March, we've heard one bit of feedback pretty regularly and that was the notification system here in Connect Extension. While users have always been able to customize their notification settings to their liking, we certainly understand that the default settings can be just too many emails. We've relayed that feedback to Crowdstack - the technology that powers Connect Extension - and we've got an exciting update!

Connect Extension has a new update that streamlines and improves the notification system - making it easier for Connect Extension users to manage their notifications and make the system more turnkey in general:

The "Your Connect Extension Update" Digest

This brand new weekly or daily email digest summarizes new posts on Connect Extension, as well as upcoming events and content by people you are following. It's a snapshot of content activity for the given time period (daily or weekly) and it includes all content types.

In short, rather than a default notification system that triggers a notification for every single piece of content - the default system is now a Weekly or Daily Digest where you can receive all the summarized content in a single email each day or once per week. You can also opt out entirely. If you prefer, you can still receive instant notifications for events or other content - but the default setting will be a weekly digest.

I've included a video below to show you how to check and adjust your notification preferences:
