How about different "follow priorities"?

Recommended Posts

The way I understand it, when one follows a forum, topic, etc. one can set how these notifications are sent (PM or email, daily, weekly, etc).  All well and good, but this seems to apply universally to all followed content, and it occurred to me that for certain forums or topics (e.g., Sales Questions, Site Help/Questions) one might want to be notified in a different (quicker) manner.

So what if one could set one of two or three different notification levels so that for example, I could be emailed immediately if someone posted in Help forums or Sales Questions, but received a weekly digest for other lower priority follows?

I saw that before, but I was under the impression that these follow preferences were applied to all follow content?  But you're saying that that setting is specifically for the thread you're following?

Correct, only the settings in the full notification settings page affect all followed items.

Thanks Colonel.  I can see that I can change specific forums to "Immediate notification," but it wasn't so obvious to me (which could just be me of course!).

Thinking out loud, though, I guess this makes me wonder if one should be able to specify two kinds of instant notification?  If someone posts in "Sales Questions" or "Site help" I would like an email in case I'm away from my desktop or laptop so I can reply via my phone, but with less mission critical stuff a site notification waiting for me might be enough.  Just wondering...
