By group: force watching of certain categories, non muting of users


(Tobias Eigen) #1

One of my sites has two categories (staff and leadership) that are limited access by group. We also set up group members manually to watch these categories. Now of course they can go and change their preferences to change this, but we’d like to avoid this if possible. Wondering if there’s a scheduled task we could set up to force group members to watch the relevant categories.

Meanwhile, we also do not want to allow members of the staff group to mute certain users who communicate about urgent matters that need to get into the email inboxes of all staff.

Could this be done via the badges queries, perhaps? I’d be grateful for guidance, code examples or recipes to copy. :smile:

ABsolutely not, badge queries can not modify data
