Share with a user via Message?

(Michael Downey) #1

One thing our wiki software does which is quite helpful is allow a user to share a page/resource with another registered user via its internal notification system. This allows people in moderation-like roles (not necessarily an official moderator) to draw attention to something requiring attention to someone who can provide some assistance.

Currently the only way to accomplish this is by @-mentioning someone. This may not be desirable especially if that person in the moderation-type role doesn’t have much to add.

Perhaps adding something to the share feature that would create a Message to a user pointing them to the topic? (And allow that sender to add a few words about why they should look?)

Isn’t this what the invite button is supposed to do on the topic?

Not if they are a current member of the community.

(Jeff Atwood) #4

Yes, but as mentioned on this site, that is currently under development.

ok found it in the thread I linked to… I think.

Making this topic, and #24003 both duplicates of #12369, I think

(Hmm, I replied to this by email but not sure where that email went.)

Sadly, the invite feature isn’t available for those of us using SSO. (As such I have no idea what “invite” is or does.)
