Topic: Getting notifications for just specific topics in a stream

Sam Estep (Jul 26 2020 at 16:25):

I'd like to get notifications for topics that I'm participating in, but getting notified for every message in a stream is too much; just to check, is there any way to get that sort of finer granularity for notifications? Judging from this issue on GitHub I would guess not, but I figured I'd ask here as well just in case

Mario Carneiro (Jul 26 2020 at 16:25):

I don't think there is

Sam Estep (Jul 26 2020 at 16:28):

Ok, thanks for confirming @Mario Carneiro ! Unfortunate but maybe the PR mentioned in that issue will be merged soon

This tip might be related in the world without notifications for topics:

Every-time you wish to check the updates in the topics you participated, open "Recent topics" (at the top left corner of the Zulip client) and choose "Participated".

(This is a beta feature, you might need to update the client)

Before there's this feature, I've been using another trick:

Click the vertical 3 dots on the right of my used id in "USERS" (on the left of the Zulip client), and choose "View messages sent".

(I've been using this trick to track @Eric Wieser too)

Unfortunately, both tricks are not available to the app, so I'm subscribing to everything...

That is useful, thanks @Utensil Song! It would still be better to get push notifications, but at least this way it's easy to check once a day or so
