"Updates" - is there a way to require a person to send the update to?


Level 4

My users sometimes forget or don't realize they didn't select the name of who to send the Update to. We never have any reason to post an update without notifying a specific person. Is there a setting we can turn on that would require a person's name to notify?

I don't believe there is based on what I could find, but am hoping I missed it.

Hi Cheryl,

I'm afraid that there is no setting to force users to tag someone into an update. However, one setting you could consider is the 'Someone comments on a thread I am in' configuration (located under Preferences > Communication in users settings). This will ensure that if a user was included in the thread at some point, but is omitted from being tagged into future updates in that thread, they will still receive a notification.

Appreciate that this isn't exactly what you were looking for, but this setting might go some way to minimising the risk of notifications not being sent.

Best Regards,
