Last spring we ran a survey among active Pontoon users in order to get a clearer picture of how they use (or don’t use) notifications. One of the questions was which new notification features we should develop. The following three received the most votes from the 169 participants of the survey:
1. Link “new string” notifications to missing strings.
2. Send notifications about pending suggestions to reviewers.
3. Add ability to opt-out of specific notifications types.
Thanks to eemeli, the first item was resolved back in August. The second feature has also been implemented, which means that every Friday reviewers receive notifications about newly created unreviewed suggestions within the last week. And finally, you can now opt-out of notifications in your user settings. Note however that you’ll still be receiving notifications sent by project managers.
