I'd like to be able to follow (subscribe to) certain tags. Is that possible? If not, am I right in that I would need to set up a group/place for that issue to follow it?
See this help doc about streams:
Creating a Custom Stream
Thanks Robert Scheitlin, GISP!
There is one small problem with this, and that is you can't follow at tag that doesn't exist yet. For example, I want to start using 'angular-esri-map' as a tag to track support issues for that repo, but since nothing has been tagged with that yet, there's nothing for me to "drag" into the new stream I'm creating so I had to create a dummy post w/ that tag to create the stream - a minor annoyance.
You're right Ken, though in this case, I've told them exactly what tag to use and even used a link that pre-fills that tag for them... unless they get redirected to the login page, in which case GeoNet does it's thing of destroying the URL .
Of course I listen for related tags, but if they want support they'll do best to follow instructions ... and always stay logged into GeoNet.
