Enabling Auto Subscribe allows Discussion Board Plus authors to receive notifications when a new topic is created and when current posts receive a reply. Turning this feature ON will alert authors who participate in the discussion when there is a new post or new reply.
Auto Subscribe enables three types of notifications:
- When your Administrator Enables Auto Subscribe
- When a New Post is Created
- When a Reply is Posted
The table below identifies discussion board actions and the corresponding email recipients when Auto Subscribe is enabled:
|A new topic is created||The post creator|
|A reply is posted||The post creator and the author of the reply|
NOTE: Only an Author* receives Auto Subscribe alerts.
