Group Watches

This is a new feature added in Tiki3.

An admin can add one or n groups - each user of the group (member at the moment of the notification) will receive a mail when some changes occur to this tiki object.

Example

Once Group watch is enabled tiki wide by an admin (“Admin home > Community > Group watches”), a few new icons will show up to the right of the previous ones in tiki objects, like in the example below of a tiki forum.



Once the admin clicks on those new icons, he/she will be able to set which groups have to receive emails:

If a user has both a user watch and a or n group watches on the event - he will receive one mail only

There is no way for a user to unsubscribe to this watch.
Note that it is possible for a user to quit and join a group if you set a Wiki page with the SubscribeGroup plugin.

 Group alert vs Group watch


Both features are fairly similar - two different developments done almost at the same time.

Difference:
  • group alert is more resource consuming as it searchs all the groups for each access - group watch is not if not used
  • group alert has an option to select some users in the groups - group watch does not have.
  • group watch can be seen in the notification panel . It doesn’t seem that a user cannot have a global view of group alert.
