Too Many Notifications? Not Enough? Here's How to Adjust Your Settings


A couple of months ago, I wrote a post on how to adjust your notification settings here in Connect Extension. It occurred to me this week that we have many more users now than when I originally wrote that. So, I thought I would share this information again:

You have control over your own settings - how many or how few notifications you wish to receive. You can turn them all off entirely, or pick and choose what you would like to receive based upon content type. You can also customize your notification settings for each subgroup you participate in.

Click here for a short video on how to do adjust your settings or follow the instructions below. 

1. Login to Connect Extension. On the navigation bar, hover over your name and choose Notifications from the drop-down menu. 

2. You'll come to the Notification Settings screen, where you'll see three tabs: Settings, Follows, and Subgroup Follows.

On the Settings tab, you can check or uncheck Email Notifications and On-Site Alerts. You can also Suspend All Email Notifications across the entire site if you prefer. 

3. If, for example, you don't want to turn off all email notifications - just specific ones (i.e. "I still want to receive calendar events, but not blog posts"), you can click on the Follows and Subgroup Follows tab to adjust what you would and would not like to receive. 

Follows refers to the main Connect Extension site (the Learn Calendar, and some general settings). Subgroup Follows refers to the subgroups you participate in. You can choose to customize the settings based upon each subgroup on the drop down menu in that tab. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. You can send me a private message here or shoot me an email at
