Community Tips: Change Notifications, Following in your profile

Changing Notification Preferences

1. How to get to the Notification Preferences

Open up the "Notification Settings" by clicking in the drop menue of your avatar in the top right corner of the page 


2. Overview of Settings

On this page, you see a list of various notification settings and can change any of them to fit your needs. If you want, you can even turn off all email notifications by checking the appropriate box (we don't recommend this).  

3. Edits Settings

Change your notifications based on your needs - you can choose to be notified immediately for certain actions, and then notified only once a day or week for other actions. It all depends on how quickly you want to receive the notification. You can see some more options on the Tab "Following" - more on that below.


1. How to follow

To help fine tune out some of the e-mails, you can follow to boards, knowledge bases, topics and certain members. Depending on your notification settings, you will get notified of any new content in the area you are following. You will automatically follow every board you join. 

To follow to a specific discussion, idea or person use the follow in the individual article or question.

You can also follow a tag, this will not be shown in your overview! For example, if you want to be notified of any new release, you can subscribe to the entire "Product Announcement" Blog. But, if you only want to be notified of a certain topic e.g. "Discover", instead of following to the entire blog, you can click on the Tag, and follow to that instead. 

2. Manage your Followings

All your Follows are listed on your profile page, you can also unfollow every item independently:

 This way you can follow to the content you really want to see instead of getting notified for every new post that might not interest you. 

We hope these tips will help control the flow of e-mails in your inbox and bring peace, happiness, and order to your inbox.
