Add group update summary on the start page



  • I just opened a new suggestion on the bug tracker:

    At the moment, one must go manually to the groups to check updates (I do forget this for a couple of days sometimes). It would be great if the updates (only those, not the forum and wiki entries from activities) were be displayed on the start page. It would be enough to have the most recent 5 to 10 of all groups.

    For the layout, I have no idea. Maybe it can be solved by providing a more different start page for logged in users, leaving out some of the standard stuff or moving that down.

    Feel free to discuss here or add comments on issue "QTWEBSITE-216":http://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/browse/QTWEBSITE-216 (or add a vote :-) )



  • +1, I've commented the bugreport :)



  • +1 Very good idea!



  • Today I publish something in the Bulgaria group and (as this was my first such post) I wondered if the others will recieve notification ... this thread gives me the answer.

    I vote with both hands for this feature!

    In my opinion it won't be bad implementation if the group updates appear as new post (at the right part of the screen).



  • I've just discovered that the group has a RSS ... after all it is possible to follow what is happening in the group. Yet it would be easier if it is implemented here :)

    No, I am in the same group and I did not receive email notification for the update.

    On the settings tab of each group you can check if you want to receive emails from the groups. I don't know if this is connected to the updates. Marius?



  • I beleive it is not connected. I have not received any notification to any updates yet (although I have checked this checkbox)

    I have checked "Get mail from this group" at the user settings on the settings tab of this group. I guess that emails are not send when an update is posted, are they?

    So may be sending an email on group update is also a useful feature :)

    P.S.
    Sorry for the consecutive posts - it is because of the race condition ;)

    You can edit your own posts and add stuff - just hit the edit link on the right, below your user avatar.



  • Emails from group I think are the emails that group owner can send from group adminpanel (there is such functionality, but I have never tried it).

    Yes, you are right. I have use it this functionality once in Qt Bulgaria group - to send information about the Qt Ambassador Program to the members. All members who have enabled emails should have received it.
