Invitation to trust level does not work


(Behzad Khanaliloo) #1

As a moderator, I am trying to invite all the users to a topic. The idea is that all the users will get a notification on their profile so that my topic reaches every one.

I already allowed inviting all the users from Admin page. Then, I invited trust level 1 and everything went smoothly (no warning message). But no one received a notification. Am I missing something? Do you have an alternative approach to make sure that my topic reaches everyone (other than pinning).

Thanks in advance

Trust levels can’t be used for notifications in that manner. Add everyone to a group and invite the group, perhaps.

Hi @codinghorror

Thanks for a quick response.
It worked for a group of size 4 people, but not for a group with ~1200. Group settings was chosen to be the same in both cases.

Maybe this is limited by the max users notified per group mention site setting?

Thank you very much @fefrei. This seems to be working, however I got a 502 (?) error message box a few seconds after I invited the trust level group. Not quite sure what it was (it was just an error number with no additional info), but at least a few people from our team are notified. I will wait until tomorrow to see if we will get a boost in the topic view :slight_smile:
