I’m looking for information on helping users opt out of instant messages but one message daily.
Are you referring to emails? Can you elaborate?
Yes. I work for a non-profit. We send out many emails a day. How can a user change their settings to receive one email at the end of the day instead of instant messages.
In a user email preferences, there are options for:
- “Send me an email when someone messages me”
- “Send me an email when someone quotes me, replies to my post, mentions my @username, or invites me to a topic”
- “Include previous replies at the bottom of emails”
- Digest email frequency
You can adjust many of those default at
How do I get to user email preferences?
On this site your user email preferences are at:
One super cool thing about Discourse is that you can also us
/my/ in your URLs that need to reference a user account.
So in the example from earlier, you could replace:
https://meta.discourse.org/my/preferences/emails and then the link will bring whichever user is logged in to THEIR personal settings.
Makes setting up user guides and documentation really easy.
