Notifications on iNaturalist - Please Share Your Ideas!

Yes, this is even with agreeing ID notifications turned off. I still get way too many.

The revamped notifications system will have functionality to help you with this.

Sometimes I randomly don’t get notifications of comments on my observations which is strange. Some notifications should be combined too. Sometimes when someone mentions me it gives me two notifications even though it’s just one comment (someone mentioned you notification and the someone left a comment notification). So yeah, I’m completely with updating notifications.

One more thing, another idea would be to modify ID notifications to only when people disagree with you so you can go check to see why they disagree. It should be optional though because some people might prefer notifications for all IDs.

Welcome to the forum!

This is an option in your account settings.

However, although I don’t need a notification when someone confirms another user’s observations, I would still like to get notifications when my own observations’ IDs are confirmed. I don’t think this is currently possible.

Thanks! Yeah, I was talking about IDs that are only in observations that aren’t mine.

That was already proposed, to split own and others’ notifications.

Oh ok, disregard my second comment then. Sorry, I didn’t have time to go read what other people said yesterday because I was fishing.

Hey all,

I just want to thank everyone for the ideas and suggestions. We’re past the point of idea gathering, however, so I’m going to close this discussion soon. The hard work of implementation, making sure the design works with the code and vice versa, lays ahead. My goal is to make a follow-up post this week with some basic descriptions of what to expect, although things will change as we work through it.
