We have a new feature added to our Groups function- something that folks have been wanting!
As it has always been , when you join a Group you can click the 'Follow' button in any group discussion so that you will receive a notification when there is a new post in that discussion . Thus you can pick and choose which group discussions you want to keep updated on.
But members worried that unless they visited the group often, they might not be aware of when a new discussion started in a group, and they might miss out on something that interested them.
Well now we have a new added button that allows you to also 'follow' a group's discussion area so that you'll be notified when a new discussion is created as well! -then you can go check out the new discussion and decide whether or not you want to 'follow' it.
You will no longer miss any of the 'action' in your favorite Groups! Hope you all enjoy this new feature.
Needless to say, you'll need to be a member of a group to be able to follow things in that group . You'll also need to have your notification settings ON in your profile Settings --> Notifications TAB...if you have them turned to OFF then of course you won't be getting any notifications at all.
Here is what you will see now on the Group's page if you want to get notified of NEW discussions in your favorite Group, OR if you want to get notified about a new post in a particular group discussion:
