Subscribe to receive notifications for when pages and their child pages get updated or have comments added to them.

This functionality is not available for Community Members

Attached to every page is the ability to subscribe to updates. Pro Members can subscribe to updates by clicking on the Page Notifications button in the top right of the screen:

This will then present you with the following options:

This page only will provide updates for the page you are currently on.  If you select This page and all subpages then you will also get notifications to all of the subpages under the page you are currently on.  If you want to modify your page notification subscriptions then you can go to Tools -> Page Notifications to unsubscribe or see all subscriptions.  

Updates will be sent under the following conditions:

  • When pages have been created
  • When pages have been updated
  • When pages have been deleted
  • When pages have been reverted
  • When pages have been moved
  • When tags have been updated
  • When comments have been created
  • When comments have been updated
  • When comments have been deleted
  • When files have been added
  • When files have been updated
  • When files have been deleted
  • When files properties have changed
  • When files have been restored

As a Pro Member, you can subscribe to these updates. When subscribed you'll receive your notifications in the form of email messages. Emails will be sent immediately (as opposed to aggregated in batches), and will not include notifications of changes made by yourself. You must be logged in as a Pro Member to sign up for notifications. As a Pro Member, you can sign up to receive notifications for either a specific page or that page and all of its child pages. 

Updates for pages are also available via RSS.

When to use this feature?

If you are a Pro Member with an admin role, you may wish to use this feature to monitor all content on the site by subscribing to the root level page of the site

If you are an editor or author, you may wish to subscribe to the page(s) you have edited/authored so you can incorporate feedback and monitor changes made by other authors and editors. 

Customize the Reply-To email address

You also have the ability to change the Reply-To email address for notifications.  If a user receives a notification, they may click "Reply" in their email client to send the site administrator a message regarding the notification.  For this use case, the Reply-To email address is what will be targeted for any replies to email notifications.  Customizing the Reply-To email address within MindTouch TCS can be configured through the Control Panel within the Configuration section.
