Receive immediate emails whenever a new classified listing is posted, similar to what you can do currently with forum posts.
Has there been any discussion to change the notification timing of items posted in Classifieds. Currently our residents have to wait for weekly "What's Happening Announcements" to know that someone has posted an item in Classifieds. Having to wait a week for someone to see that you have posted an item does not promote resident involvement. I know that the discussion to change the forum topic notification default from a negative to a positive has been closed. Is there anything a resident can post that can be seen immediately? I have tried and tried to inform residents to correct the negative default for forum topics. They simply don't understand that they have been blocked from seeing these notifications. If people don't want to participate in the community they should have to choose to block any communications, that would be a one time block, as opposed to administrators struggling to explain the software to residents that have no idea how your software works. Only 20% of our residents have changed their forum topic notifications, while 75% participate in a Face Book discussion group that the Board has no control over.
@Lindy Peters: We are considering adding the ability for notification emails to be sent out when a new classified listing is posted. Members could then be notified of those postings ahead of when the What's Happening emails are sent. This is the post where we're gathering feedback from admins on how they would like to see this implemented.
To answer your question, instant email notifications will currently only be sent out for activity on a "Forum" page or if a resident sends an alert from a "Resident Alerts" page. Our What's Happening emails are designed to summarize new content on the website in a way that doesn't overwhelm residents with too many emails. For this reason, we don't plan to send separate notifications about each new piece of content posted to the website.
In regards to the default contact preferences, I'm afraid we don't have plans to change these. To view our reasons why I'd recommend visiting this post: https://feedback.hoa-express.com/feature-requests/p/set-default-contact-preferences.
I agree, our blast is monthly and I believe anytime a member posts in the classifieds that it should immediately get sent to other members as an alert...
Yes, I would like to see a change made so the board of directors receives an immediate e-mail when there is a new posting so we can monitor content.
Please change Classifieds to be an instant notification. Waiting a week for an alert does not promote community involvement and sharing information with each other.
Provide the ability to send out immediate emails as changes are made to entries in the community For Sale Section.
Would you clarify for me if you'd like to send out an email for new listings added to a "Classifieds" page? If so, we have an existing post with this request: https://feedback.hoa-express.com/feature-requests/p/instant-notifications-for-classified-listings.
If this is what you're requesting, let me know, and I'll merge this post with that one.
@Meredith Owens: Hi Meredith, Many thanks.. please merge.
@Meredith Owens: yes, that’s what i’m Requesting.
Yes! Some content is time sensitive, and waiting for a weekly blast is just too long.
This would be nice, would allow for instant review and if deemed inappropriate could be removed faster.
