Customize Your Activity Notifications

Dear Polyvore community,

Today we’ve added a new feature that lets you customize your activity notifications! This means you’ll only see the red notification flag when you have activity you care about.

To customize your notifications, go to your Activity page and click the “Customize” link above your activity stream. This will bring you to your Account Settings.  Under the Site Activity section, you can customize your notifications by checking or unchecking the boxes.



For example, you can turn off notifications for when your clipped items are used in sets, or turn on notifications for comments only.

This has been one of the #1 requests we’ve been getting, so we hope you find it helpful!

Love,
The Polyvore Team

Geniuses!! Thank you so much for that feature. I dislike seeing that so and so used and item I clipped, especially because I clip so much. It would clutter my activity feed non stop. :) Yay!

Thank you so much!I've clipped a lot of items that are used often, and so that's all that I would see anymore. I was missing a lot of other activity because of it. So thanks, this is probably the best new update polyvore has had in a while. :)

Nice!

This is a great feature as I am inundated with who used my items in their sets. I have a couple items that should win a prize for how many times they have been used by members.

This activities page customization feature was a request of mine from recent feedback on the new layout. Thank you very much for providing this ability to control what we see and show.

Polyvore is the BEST social network, bar none. Now, I have to get Twitter to do the same for their recent Activities stream page.

Best wishes,

mijori

Thank you for listening to our complaints and changing things that we don't like.

Now if you'll only stop changing the things that we do like....

That is awesome! You guys are doing great! (I have grown to love the new layout too - it only took me about 2 days and now it's awesome!) Thank you so much for everything you guys do!

I like this but I really miss the see all button :(

The-dawn said...

I like the idea but unfortunately it isn't working for me.

Since I customized the notifications the red notification flag isn't shown anymore at all, even though I only unchecked the group notifications.

studioJudith said...

Another great addition ... .
thanks !

Thanks! I'm also impressed by the mobile site but I'm constantly switching to full to check my messages. :/
Also can you maybe have like a blue flag for messages? It'd be super helpful! I also mis the recommended contacts I use to fid so many contacs that way. Thank for listening!

THANK YOU SO MUCH <3

This is totally an amazing feature... I really was so annoyed of how many sets have been posted to my group ... it is so pointless to know that... but thanks, now I can stop that...
I would also like to suggest to put the exact date of each set.. I mean telling us one week ago or one year ago is so useless... Please return the dates ...

Thanks again =))
*hugs* xoxoxo

Thanks for all your hard work Poly team!! We appreciate it.

After I changed my preferences,
I get no red flag/indication beside the activity :-((

Anonymous said...

Great idea :) But after I customized the notifications, the red number notification beside the activity doesn't work.

Lexie said...

Even through I have comments clicked {like I want to see it} I never get the red flag for it. Glitch?
And please change to the previous change I hate this new layout

Ashley said...

Thanks so much! =)

@polyvore. for some reason since I changed my settings I do not get the red flag at all anymore. even though the only things I unticked were items, template and style advice. whazzzupwiththat polypeepa?

Andrea said...

I'm really liking the new layout it's very practical but you know what else would be a great addition? A "tags" or "mentions" tab, cause right now we gotta scroll all the way down while checking activity to find out if any of our polyvorians buddies has mentioned/tagged us on their sets :)

Kendra Hardesty said...

I am confused as to why polyvore sometimes looks different than others when I log in. Does anyone else know what I mean? One minute it looks like a totally different web page and the next it looks like it usually does. I find it annoying...wish you guys would stick to one style please

EMILY LIZ said...

You think you can put a "what are you doing" bar on each poly members account. I kinda want to know what people I following are up too. I like to see what there saying. Maybe a face book link to see what my friends are up too in facebook.

Good Apps said...

AH OK. I had heard there was that feature. I just didn't realize where it was located. i guess I know have figured it would be under account settings. Thanks for clearing that up!
