What's the timeline for improving messaging?


(Tobias Eigen) #1

There are a handful of missing messaging features that are becoming increasingly urgent for us, and I think the discourse team probably agree they need to happen but they are lower on your priority list than ours. Is there anything I can do to help speed it up, besides becoming a hosting customer? :innocent:

These are the most pressing ones:


Split into two settings: "Who can message and @mention this group?"
(Joshua Rosenfeld) #2

Well, if it helps @tobiaseigen’s case, #1 would certainly be appreciated over at Stonehearth.

FYI - #1 has now been implemented. Groups can be invited and removed from private messages.. :rocket:

… but #3 has not happened. It’s back on my radar though so maybe I will try to make it happen.

You received this because… in footer of emails

I’d also like to keep in mind

For now, in my community, I am changing the email button text from “Read Message” to “View Recipients”.

I feel like pushing users to the site should be the main objective while trying to avoid the pitfalls.

I posted some email footer enhancements tips for Reply Privately and other features using existing Discourse shortcodes and Customize Text. I didn’t check any of the group email templates or related email text but maybe some of the codes are already present or could be implemented in a similar way.
