How to watch a tag intersection


(David Planella) #1

Hi,

I know it’s possible to watch a single tag and get notifications:

https://meta.discourse.org/tags/feedback

Is it possible to watch an intersection of tags? It seems that in that case the watch function is no longer available in the tag view:

https://meta.discourse.org/tags/intersection/feedback/dashboard

My particular use case would be for a different set of teams to get notifications when there is feedback for a particular part of a project. For instance the backend team would be watching tags/intersection/feedback/backend and the frontend team would be watching tags/intersection/feedback/frontend.

Thanks!

This isn’t currently possible. A couple of workarounds you could go for:

  • Have dedicated “dashboard-feedback” and “frontend-feedback” tags

  • Add “dashboard” and “frontend” to a tag group with “feedback” as the parent. This would prevent “dashboard” and “frontend” being used unless “feedback” is present. Then people could safely watch “dashboard” or “frontend”. That may or may not be useful for your site.

Thanks for suggesting some possible workarounds!
