Hey guys 🙂
just strolling my first round thru your fine plugin + one of the first things jumping right at me is that notifications don’t create notifications bubbles, neither in backend (like comments would) nor on a buddypress enabled theme (which, of course, is not primarily your responsibility).
The interface to edit user messages is fine 🙂 but : how about you add a select for
“Notification on this :
[ ] by eMail
[ ] by bubble
[ ] both”
Just a notion. hth 🙂 Cheers! LX
Hi LX M,
Welcome to BuddyDev forums and thank you for using the BuddyPress Moderation tools.
It’s a good suggestion. We have email notifications for each of the notifiable type(on various actions like report and hide for admin).
Should we add a settings for each of the notifiable type or a global setting? Also, I think adding notification( one notification for hidden items and one for reported items) will be nice. Wghat do you suggest.
We do have a major update for this plugin coming this month and I will be happy to have it.
+ thank you for getting back to me re this.
Intuitively, I would have expected this to be like the other options, i.e. decideable per type of activity; I was thinking, that maybe an admin team might find themselves preferring different notifications for different occurrences – but I may be off with that subjective notion.
re hidden vs reported: I would think this to be dependent on the subjective urgency each of those might cause. I’d expect a community member to maybe find it important enough to receive a mail once something is hidden; and not only find out the next time they happen to log on and notice the bubble.
Again, strongly subjective; hence I would suggest to make it so that the individual admin crew can set this according to their individual circumstance/s and requirement/s;
Happy to hear there’s an update scheduled;
I have another suggestion to contribute, but will do so on a separate thread as this is a separate issue.
Cheers + thank you for the great work so far. (y)
Thank you for the suggestions.
I am considering adding a global option and not adding BuddyPress specific notification as BuddyPress Notification does not make sense for administrative purpose.
I will leave the room open for a possible BuddyPress notification implementation or implementation of notification to 3rd party channels by leaving some hook there.
