New private message alert feature request



  • It would be nice to have an optional feature to show popup of new private message whenever user is logged in. In the past I missed to check my email and could not revert back soon - but I was online in the forums and could have reverted if some pop up indication was shown.



  • I agree it might be better for when online, but I think I'd like it to still send email if I'm not online. Or an settings to control the behavior.

    Yes it would still send the email. I have seen this feature in almost all forums. Specially used by administrators to send some message.



  • It also would be nice if we could read the message here, too. That's the only kind of message, that cannot be handled on the site here.



  • A popup maybe it's too much, but a note, where your avatar and your data is displayed, like "you've received private messages" it would be nice.



  • Wait: there are private messages? I thought just emails.



  • Yes, it's an email sent to you, like the notifications of posts. But if you are focused on the web, like right now some people are (you know why ;)), but you might forget the messages, because if you are like me, you've setup a filter, and you may not notice it.



  • Maybe a private message is a useful part of a forum, but only for a 'private' session to the user.
    Sometimes is quick send a message to user without create a new post (becouse the message is not useful for the forum)



  • Private messages would be a nice feature, and also some state displayed on the page near the avatar. But I wouldn't use a popup (as I hate popups :-), especially on the web ).



  • Maybe some text info about incoming private message under the user name in the right of the page can be a nice position?

  • I've written about private messages here: http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewthread/2368/#13878

    Looking for feedback :)
