Hi Brandis Nov 28, 2004

If I understand what you mean you should go to the topic and select the option you have on the right at the top.
If you want to deselect all the topics of that forum you must go to the main page of that forum and deselect the option.

I'm moving this one to "forums about Proz.com" -> forums.

Claudia

Hi Brandis,


1) Tracking options for a forum: please go to the forum overview page:
http://www.proz.com/?sp=bb/new&action=Overview

You have a 'Track' option to the left of each forum



2) Tracking options for individual threads are in the check-box in the upper right corner of the forum page:

Your Email Tracking
This topic All posts

Please check whatever you need and click the 'update' button.



Hope this helps,
Natalia

only one or two topics may not be so interesting Nov 28, 2004

HI! I understand what you mean, but if I select "off" on the forum-overview, I would be neglecting all postings in that forum. What I mean is a choice of one or two topics, which do not interest me much. Is there an option here for that! Regards, Brandis

the other way round Nov 28, 2004

in each topic you can decide to track that particular topic if you don't want to track the whole forum.
So you should deselect the forum and chose which topics you want to follow.

TOPIC STARTER
yet I meant something else Nov 28, 2004

Hi! Claudia, I understand perfectly what you mean. When I go to the topic on the top right side of the page I see an option to mark, to get all the continuing posters in my mail. Now I am getting these even without having to mark that box on the top right. Now one or two topics do not interest me much and I didn´t select " follow-up , all posts, in this forum" etc., still I get these. Is there a way to change this, but pertaining to only these one or two topics. I find an option " do not follow further postings" very useful.
Regards, Brandis

Well, it seems that we understand each other now Nov 28, 2004

I thought that you were asking how to do what you wanted, but in fact you're asking for a new feature, please suggest it in the suggestions forum.

I don't think it's necessary because we already have all the means to chose to receive or not notifications for all, some or no new posts.

Hi! Claudia, I felt the necessity for this, it could be only one or two topics in my example, but it could equally be more only two such topics. I felt the necessity for it. I may not have understood or have overseen this facility, using which one could infact reach my kind of a solution. I don´t exactly understand what you mean by "having all the means" I didn´t know where to post it, and so posted here. Do I have to submit an application here, so that this thread can be moved to the right forum! Then I submit now.Regards, Brandis

Select off in the forum overview and chose only the topics you want to track.

an example for tracking on/ off Nov 29, 2004

Hi Claudia, An example would be the Forum "Localization", here generally I follow all topics ( majority), but do not wish to follow a couple of topics (2-3 in my view, that is the minority). If there were a choice of unselecting these 2-3 topics as in the example, I do not have to unselect a whole range of topics in the forum "localization", in order to reselect all the hundreds of topics, I dearly would like to follow, leaving out those 2-3 choice. Is that the solution according to you. Additionally also, at any given point of time, if a posting or a discussion is well known to me (or anyone) the choice would be, not to read it or deselect it, as a matter of personal choice. I hope I am more clear now.Regards, Brandis
