Currently we’re implementing a redesign of the Discourse summary emails (formerly known as the “weekly digest”). These emails are extremely important to community engagement and retention, so it’s time to improve them. Here’s how it’s looking so far from a bird’s eye view:
Some goals of the new design:
- Bigger, bolder typography
- At a glance information. Start with some counts to get an idea of how much you’ve missed, and get more specific the further down you scroll.
- Styled content. Topics look like topics, posts look like comments.
- More calls to action, like the “Join the discussion” links on each topic and post.
We’ve learned a lot from our customers about how important customization of these emails is, so I’ll be keeping that in mind too.
Thanks goes to @rewphus for getting this new template started!
