Add email notification to the collaborations tool

I'm not sure if I'm missing a setting somewhere but I think it would be really useful to receive an email notification when someone comments on a post in the collaborations tool (like in lots of other areas in Absorb). I don't expect our learners to actively log in every day just to see if anyone has interacted with their posts. This leads to most attempts at discussion to dry up after only one interaction.

    It makes sense to have a Notification or Email sent to learners when someone posts on the Collaborations. Please!

    Please add this to the roadmap! This would be a valuable feature. We aren't even live yet and our testers are asking for it!

    I'm dismayed this isn't already available. We left another LMS provider for Absorb, and this was one feature that the former LMS had nailed - ability to @ a user as well as send email notifications. Sad to have lost that ability.

    Allow users to browse different Collaboration spaces and join the ones that interest them. Allow ability to search, filter, and TAG Collaboration spaces and posts. Allow ability to pin favorite Collaborations. Allow Collaborations to show most active users/ gamification. Allow notifications (daily, weekly, monthly, real-time) for Collaborations.

    We are moving our entire forum platform for Absorb and this is a key feature needed. Please add this back to the roadmap!

    completely agree! To make collaboration a useful tool as part of the course or learning trajectory a nudge/email/message would be helpful. especially if you use multiple collaboarations

    Agree with this one. People don't just check back in to see if further replies or comments have been posted and hence threads just die. email notification would fuel better collaboration!

    This Engage feature just doesn't work. It needs to notify people when they receive a comment to their post.

    This is a massive missing feature. How would anyone know if somone has responded to their post besides logging into it everyday? :/

    We would really love notifications added! This would make or break us using the service.

    Not sure what clients provided feedback on this that wouldn't benefit from having this added. This would be so helpful!!

    Considering that this part of the add-on/pay extra features, I was hoping for this to be more robust given its name, "Collaborations." If Learners are in the middle of multi-week courses but they've completed all the other assignments and self-paced work there's no need for them to log in. If part of an assignment is to respond/reply to feedback on a project's post it makes it very disjointed to have to periodically check over and over to ensure everyone can/did respond during the 'review' or 'feedback' phase.

    I also feel this is a very important feature. I have found the collaborations tool to be pretty useless without this. I thought I could get round it by running a collaborations report, but then there's no way in the report to quickly get to the comment in question. Plus, there's no search function within the collaborations tool so I can't even just search by the question/comment text, which is also a problem from the learner point of view as they can't see if anyone else has already asked that question and received a suitable answer.

    Thank you for taking the time to contribute to this idea. We regularly review your feedback and it is instrumental to our feature prioritization and development process. After reviewing our most recent data and client feedback, we have decided to remove this item from our roadmap. It will be re-evaluated for inclusion on our roadmap in the future though, so please continue to share your feedback and your votes here.

    In order to increase learner engagement, we are using Discussion Boards. If the learner does not get email notifications when new posts are added or if someone replies to their question, we will have way less engagement overall and this could be detrimental to the community of practice we are trying to build.

    Think it's a good idea to not only have email notifications but have the capability to say if you get email notifications or have them show up as system notifications.

    Yes options to choose which notifications you receive and how often. I.e. new collab, new post, new comment/ reply/ like. Receive daily, weekly, monthly, etc.

    I had also submitted this as a request about a 1.5 years ago. There needs to be email notification to those associated with the course build/designing et al so we are aware comments are made. Running a Comments Report or checking the course daily is not a good use of our time. I'm shocked too more having voted for this. Try to ask your colleagues too to vote.

    This is such a big gap in an otherwise really useful tool . Please put email notification on collaboration board soon.

    This would really support our business and improve collaboration between course participants.

Collaboration feature - email notifications

Merged
Please link email notifications to the collaboration feature. For example, if someone commented on a post, the person who made the post will get an email that there is a new comment to look at, and reply to.
