Group notification settings


I need to create a group for the research project, and I need for ALL the members to receive notifications of new posts and replies.

Is this possible?


For messages: You can set the default notification level for groups to watching. But you can’t prevent people from changing that later after they join the group.

For topics it is already set to normal by default, which means that when you @ mention groups they will be notified.

But maybe you are talking about category settings. You can set this for new users in /admin/site_settings/category/user_preferences.

There is a plugin for enforcing this for users later to prevent them from unwatching a category.

If your site is hosted by us, we can help you set the notification level for specific categories on your site for existing users. For new users, you can add the group’s categories to you site’s default categories watching or default categories tracking settings.

If you use PMs instead of a protected category for group communication, setting the group’s default notification level should accomplish what you are looking for.
