I am in the process of migrating my club from a Yahoo! mailing list to Discourse. During my investigation, Discourse seemed to be the ideal solution.
Many of our users insist on retaining mailing list functionality, but many also want the forum environment. Discourse seemed like the perfect fix. About 1/3 of our users opt for a daily or weekly digest on the current mailing list. They have made it clear that the digest function is a must-have. When I began looking at Discourse I’m pretty sure it offered email digest options for notifications.
Now that I am ready to make the move for my club I just realized that there is no longer an email digest option.
What happened to digests? I saw a discussion that the developers were concerned about the potential for large volumes of emails with digests.
We are a small organization and I have little concern for that.
This a very disappointing discovery and likely a deal-breaker for using Discourse. Please reinstate digests!
