This is awesome guys!!
As a fan of bookmark reminders, I’d like to suggest an additional feature I think will be quite useful.
A common use of reminders is to do follow ups. The problem when they are used that way is that, if someone answers to that post, you will:
- Receive a notification for the new message. You usually want to act on that, answering back.
- Receive another notification some time later for the follow up. This is unnecessary and clutters your notifications.
Email managers like Gmail or Front solve this by automatically dismissing the reminder when a new email is received. This is the default and can’t be changed.
In Discourse, follow-ups are not going to be the only use of reminders, so I have two suggestions:
- Add it as an opt-in option when you set the reminder with a checkbox in the modal window to “Dismiss reminder when new answer is received”.
- Add a “Dismiss reminder” button easily accessible at the bottom of the post. This is very important because the in order to avoid a cumbersome workflow the button must be in the thread page, next to the new answer dialog. If the workflow to dismiss the reminder is to going to another page, searching for it, selecting options and finally deleting it, it won’t be useful for this usage.
