BP Group Activities Notifier plugin notifies group members of any new activities in his/her group.
It is based on simple idea to add a local notification for user(Like other social networks) when any activity happens in his/her group.
Here is what it does currently.
- Notifies members if someone posts an update in the group
- Notifies members if a user joins the group
- Notifies members if someone posts a new topic
- Notifies members on new reply in the forum
- Should work for any other plugin which adds activity in the group
Here is a couple of screenshots:-
Currently, in the initial release, it only locally notifies the users(Adds these to users notification list on the network).
I am looking forward to your suggestions for the future improvements. What do you think about these ?
- Should we allow users to opt out of the notifications? If yes, what should we do by default, keep them subscribed and allow to unsubscribe ?
- Should we send emails on new group activities?
- Is there anything else you want to do ?
Please let me know your suggestions and I will be more than happy to have them in 🙂

This is the fourth plugin in the series of 17 plugins we are trying to release before BuddyPress 1.7. Why don’t you suggest us a plugin if you need them, I promise, we will do our best to bring them to life 🙂
