Community Site Feature doesn't send email notifications?

    Question

  • Can someone let me know if Community site feature discussions should send notifications automatically to a threaded discussion?  If not, how is it possible someone overlooked this as a feature?  It has to be one of the poorest developed add-ins for SharePoint developed to date.

  • Hi,

    It seems you want to send notifications if one threaded discussion changed/updated.

    If so, you could set ‘alert’ on this thread. For example:

    If this doesn’t meet your requirement, you could consider workflow for your case.

    Here is one link for your reference:

  • A discussion board ought to have an automated email alert by default.  Kludgy work arounds are not an appropriate solution.  The Community site template is pretty much useless...sorry but it is.
