NEW "Notifications" feature launched!
Hi all! I wanted to let you know that we just launched a new feature in the Community for keeping up with all your activity! It’s called “Notifications” and it lives in the top right of the Community. See here:
I want to make sure everyone was aware as this is a really exciting new feature that will make it really easy to see who has smiled your posts, if someone replies, when your rank changes, etc…
What do you think of the new feature?
Hi Star! I’ll add you to the LB.
Very nice, and a great idea. Although my work schedule doesn’t allow me to log on every day, I’m happy to hear when someone comments on something I have said.
Why is this repeated?
I don’t understand the purpose of the ranks. Is there any advantage to ranking up? Any information on this would be appericiated. Thank you.
Not to worry Vonnie…:heart:
I think the ranks go up for the helpfullness of the posts…or the number of posts…or how long you may have been posting. Some have just been here long enough and post a lot whether about products or just something else. I’m sure someone will come along and correct what I’ve said but that’s just basically the ‘jist’ of it. I’ve only been posting for a few months..and was recently given a new rank.
I don’t pay too much attention to ranks myself, but that’s just me. I pay more attention to the value of the post or the kindness of a poster…even sometimes just for the humorous banter!!
Either way…have fun!!! We are basically a Happy Bunch..:heart:
I have only been commenting on these blogs for close to a year, and up until now, did not know there was a category or status if you will, such as rank. I just write what I feel and don’t pay attention to such things. Thanks for the information!
Gosh…I didn’t even know there was anything next to the word ‘notifications’. I just realized that there was ‘something’ next to the word by reading both dubuque’s and boodlemum’s posts! So…not only wasn’t there anything I could see next to ‘notifications’…but was there supposed to be a number count also? I only ask because now that I’ve clicked on it…I do see that there a black ‘0’ showing next to the word.
I also agree that It’s nice to see who responded to a post, however to date…only see who smiled. As most things new, I’m sure HSN will refine this new feature.
Thanks so much for always trying to make our visits here enjoyable!!!
I assume that not all of these features are enabled yet. The only thing that the Notification feature seems to do is register smiles. I am NOT being notified when someone replies to a post that I have made. I am unable to tell about the change in rank and I don’t know what the "etc" items might be.
The smiles feature is nice but, to me, less important than knowing that someone replied, because it is courteous to acknowledge their reply. It can be easy to miss seeing a reply if some time has passed since posting.
I agree with boodlemum that the use of white to indicate the # of new items registered in the Notification is very difficult to see.
Thanks for the new feature. I’m just curious as to whether you haven’t finished rolling out all of its parts yet or if HSN has decided to use it only for smiles.
Has anyone else had a notification of a change in rank or that a reply was made to one of your posts?
Thanks Dave I noticed it right away.:smileyhappy:
Dave! Stranger! You’ve not visited us in a long time.
And Mayor? Wow!
Great idea now we don’t have to scroll down so much.
DaveJ, it would be helpful if the number of notifications would display in blue or black instead of white. It’s difficult to see the white number on the light gray background. Thanks.
