So today I open GeoNet and I see 97 notifications in my notifications feed.  Yesterday, I only had notifications for topics and questions I posted and/or replied to.  How do I get that back? 

I don't want notifications every time someone replies to a topic or question or group or whatever for every single post that I'm subscribed to. 

When that happens, the questions I have replied to become buried so fast that notifications are useless

There was a platform change made earlier this week for notification that added to the extra notifications coming through, so it is worth reviewing and updating your subscriptions again. Sorry for any inconvenience.

hi @DavidColey  you can change your subscriptions and notifications here.  If you are following a board or place then you might be getting all the posts and replies, so you can pare that back. How to set subscriptions, notifications, and email settings

Thanks Michelle - that's fine and I will do that.  But I just want to say that I had already done that and something changed in GeoNet that flooded my notifications this morning, and continues now.  So, you know, not happy

You know, in general, the entire platform move has been disappointing.  I have been contributing solutions and feedback to this forum on all manner of topics as a student, as a tech, as an Analyst and as ArcEnterprise Administrator.  Not to mention as java script developer.

All of us have lost bookmarks and threads.  All of us have lost threads. All of us have lost contacts.  All of us have had to re-learn a platform.  And for what?  Where is the benefit?  I can't find my responses under an avalanche of replies.  None of us need to see eveyone else's replies just because we are subscribed to a community!

I applaud the 2 "Kudos' given for your reply - I hope those 'Kudos' mean 'thanks, because I too was wondering why my thread was also suddenly buried'

Hello all

 

I like the new format. It let me scan all the interesting places without have to check all.

The only problem is the way it is shown. In the latest activity the list have much more details (see screen shots)
