Coming Soon: Network Notifications

Long ago (in the ancient days of 2009) PBworks consisted of separate and unrelated workspaces.  For business customers, this was a problem, since it was difficult to keep track of all their different workspaces and projects.

The answer was PBworks Business Edition, which introduced the concept of “networks” of related workspaces.  Now, business users could easily navigate between their various workspaces, and see aggregate information on a personal dashboard.

However, there was one area in which workspaces remained stubbornly separated: email notifications.

For the past 18 months, our Business Edition users have continued to receive separate notifications for each of their workspaces.

This is going to change.

Based on your feedback, PBworks will soon be releasing Network Notifications.  Like our Dashboard, these new notifications will aggregate the information from all your workspaces and present it in one convenient place, this time in your email client rather than your web browser.

The new Network Notifications should reduce the amount of email you get from us, but still keep you up to date on all the important items you don’t want to miss.

We’ll be turning on Network Notifications for everyone in the next few weeks, but if you want to experience them early, contact your Account Manager, and we’ll try to work you into the beta testing program.
