Can you please allow for some type of alerting for reactions?

Hi @spottedmahn,

To clarify your request some, are you looking to get an email or notification every time that a user reacts to a comment that you’ve made in an Issue or Pull Request? Would you also want this sort of functionality as the original Issue or Pull Request creator for comments attached to it?

I’m happy to submit your feedback to our product team, but I’d like to make sure that I understand the use case fully before I do so. The more information you can give me around this request, the better.

Thanks!

Hi @that-pat,

“To clarify your request some, are you looking to get an email or notification every time that a user reacts to a comment that you’ve made in an Issue or Pull Request?” Yes.

“Would you also want this sort of functionality as the original Issue or Pull Request creator for comments attached to it?” I don’t know about that one.  I’m not sure I understand it.  Are you saying:

example: 

  • I create an issue
  • you post a reply
  • Susie :+1: your reply

Are you asking if I should be alerted to that scenario?  If so, there could be value in that too!

Of course, some people won’t want this so there would need to be a toggle.

Thanks!
