Hello everyone,

Today we have rolled out a feature that has been requested by members for a long time now: the ability to subscribe to a discussion, and receive notifications when a new message is posted.

In any forum discussion on iATN, you will now see a "Notify" button that can be toggled on. Once turned on, you will receive an email notification when a new message is received, providing a nice preview of the beginning of the message (or if it's a short enough message, the entire message).

For now we are starting with a single option of real-time notifications: you will receive an email for every reply posted in the discussions you've chosen to be notified on. In the future, we may expand this to support other notification options, such as a daily notification updates.

We hope everyone enjoys this new feature, and that it makes it easier to keep an eye on interesting discussions, even if you aren't actively involved in them.

P.S. Along with this change, we also improved the format of the emails you receive when someone replies directly to your message in the forums, so that it now also includes a preview of the reply message that was just posted.
