It's Friday, so that means it's time to push to production!
Today we are publishing out new notification system, to make it easier to see the various actions that are happening on your profile and products.
If you click on the new "Bell" icon in the top navigation system while logged in, it will take you to your notifications page (https://openmakers.io/notifications).
Here are some of the actions that will create a notification...
- Someone Likes one of your milestones.
- Someone Follows You.
- Someone Follows Your Product.
- Someone Asks you a question in our AMA section.
- If you follow someone and they post a milestone or article.
- and more...
We are testing a real-time toast notification system when these actions take place, so if you are on the site and someone creates an action that relates to you, you will get a toast. We'll see if this becomes overwhelming or not.
As we were working on our notification system, our friends at Hey.Cafe launched one as well. Turns out their design was VERY similar to what we were already doing, so we didn't steal their design and they didn't steal ours, give them a follow: https://openmakers.io/product/heycaf%C3%A9
This is the first iteration of notifications, we'll likely have a bunch of refinements to make over the coming weeks. We will also have an email notifications system for some actions that require a response, such as AMA questions. This will be a little while out still though.
Let us know your thoughts.
