Users aren't checking their email every 5 minutes, they can't browse each topic just checking for a reply, that's why notifications are the best way to make them aware new content at your community, our alerts system is designed to provide those notifications as soon as they happen and the best part is that they are integrated with third-party mods too!
Make users aware of new things even if they are not at your forum! Desktop notifications work similary to push notifications in smartphones, they notify your users even if they are not at the web browser!
The favicon can be easily used to make your users aware of new notifications when they at the web browser, but in another tab. As you can see when new notifications are fetched the favicon is smartly changed to easily make users aware of unseen alerts but also identifying your forum!
Noty is how it's called the system we've integrated to let your users be aware of notifications as soon as they arrive at your forum, this inline notifications are beautiful, unobstructive and automatically hidden if the alert doesn't requires inmediate attention from the user.
Alert users about important announcements, actions required or anything else that demands attention! This feature works right from your admin panel, so you can easily send a special alert to all users without overloading your forum!
Each user can choose which alerts wants to receive right from their profile! And from your admin panel you can choose which alerts will be selected by default to all existing and new users!
Notifications for each board are smart, you can select if you want to receive notifications about new posts using: alerts, emails, both or none! Everything is quick and intuitive, so each user can be notified exactly how they want to.
You can configure how the entire alerts system is disable when your server is under high stress; however this mod uses cache and smart queries to reduce overload as much as possible!
