Global tracking selection


(heinrich5991) #1

Situation

Currently there’s a tracking selection for each topic on its own and for read topics.

Then there’s a tracking selection for each category – but unfortunately not for the “top-level” category of the forum, that means that I either have to track all categories (and hope no new categories get added) or set read topic tracking to always and manually click on each topic to track it.

Proposal

Add a tracking selector to the top-level “Categories” view which affects all new topics.

I’m unsure what you mean, is this to get a notification of new categories that have been created?

No, this is about automatically tracking or watching new topics in general, regardless in which category they are.

If you want to watch all topics you enter, there is a setting for that.

But watching all topics that are created, no, there is no setting for that. You’d need to watch every category. That seems reasonable as long as the # of categories is not too large.
