How to set up the feature "User Notifications" available since Tiki13. Images come from the presentation shown by Nelson Ko in the March 2014 Webinar.

1.5. Notification digests


Then you can enable the feature notification digests:

This way, you can later on set to "High" the choice in the drop down at the user notifications of tiki objects. This way they will get added to the next periodic digest.

1.6. Stored Searches


Enable the feature first:

Then the search interface for users allows them to choose other options, such as "Store query" or "View Stored queries":

When you click at the button "Store query" shown in the previous image, you can define its options in a pop up screen:

Later on, you can see the stored queries through teh link provided in the search form and edit them:

Now, we will add a new stored query for the search string "nelson". First we add the word "nelson" in the search form, and then we click at the button "Store query" in a similar way to what was shown in a previous image.

Therefore, whenever someone edits a tiki object (wiki page, ...) and adds the string "nelson", the user will be notified.

In this case, the user is notified through the screen counter, because that edition was done in the wiki page "Homepage", which was also being monitored:

But in the next periodic notification digest, the user will be notified that the text string "nelson" was typed in a tiki page (the Homepage in this case).
