Fellow Community Members,
Did you subscribe to email notifications in the Jive system? Have you already re-subscribed to the email notifications in the Lithium system? I have some opinions on the differences between the email notificaitions between the two systems. Perhaps some of this can be configured, and some cannot. But maybe this topic can get a conversation started about email notificaitons. You may agree, disagree, or bring up additional points to consider.
Here are my thoughts:
Ben, it's driving me batty as well. I haven't even tried to organize the emails yet in hopes that Toby can adjust the email subject to include the source area...
I agree, the notifications are a big dissapopintment. You've summed up my thoghts well. Too much unnecessary info, poorly formatted and hard to read quickly.
Futher on this topic, I am wondering about images embedded in posts. Jive didn't have this functionality, but it appears that Lithium might be halfway there. Please see the 2 screenshots below.
In the first screenshot, someone gave me kudos on my post. A copy of my post was in the email. And it included my embedded images.
In the second screenshot (a reply to a posted question), Jeff has some images embedded. But the images don't come through in the email notification.
I can understand that some people would not like to have images come through. So maybe it could be a preference. But it would certainly be a lot nicer to be able to see embedded images in the email notification. Do you think it is possible?
