Are there any preferences for email notifications?

History

I think it's nice to offer a "once a day email update" for all activity but for my company I like to be more on top of the answers section, without patrolling it all day, so an immediate email would be very handy.

My users are truck drivers and they are not on the computer for long periods of time. When they comment or answer a question that I'm watching it would be great to be notified so I can get them an answer asap.

Am I posting these "might be" feature requests in the wrong place? If so I'll mention them somewhere else.

This is the right place. Thanks for the idea! We'll prioritize feature requests by number of votes—so post your ideas and then lobby for other people to agree with you!

Kyle Wiens,

Maybe I'll create a few bogus accounts and vote this up. haha - kidding

Aaron,

Good idea! We haven't had anyone else request more frequent emails, but I can definitely see the use case.

I use RSS to stay on top of communications from our customers. There's an RSS feed available on the answers index page. I leave my RSS reader up alongside my email and check it throughout the day for new posts.

Kyle, I'm not seeing the RSS. I looked on Dozuki and on my website. It's probably because I'm blind. The RSS would really only work for me if I can tie it to a specific category. Otherwise it would be no different than simply looking at the Answers index.

Aaron,

The RSS icon is added by your browser when it detects that RSS is available. The RSS url for your site is http://letstruck.dozuki.com/Answers?rss=... RSS is also available for categories like you want. Here's the url for Cooling Systems RSS: http://letstruck.dozuki.com/Answers/Cate...

Kyle Wiens,

Thanks Kyle, I knew of the top RSS. I thought you meant on the page. Thanks for the help and great suggestions.

Aaron,
