Leave a legacy.

Easy way to find and organise threads you want updates on

Afternoon all :smileyhappy:


I would like to propose that giffgaff revisit the idea of being able to manage email subscriptions, so members can find and organise those threads they want updates on more easily.  I have 29 pages of thread subscriptions and want to delete some however this is very time consuming as there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for the order it is currently in.


This idea has been posted before back in 2011 by wollac11 http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Submit-Great-giffgaff-Ideas/Email-subscriptions-sorting-amp-search/idi-p/819065. However it didn’t get taken forward because it didn’t reach the magic number of 10 kudos (I know we now need 20 kudos!) so it is currently in the ideas vault.


However, should it receive sufficient interest giffgaff will revisit it :smileyhappy:


From when I have posted this in contribute http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Contribute-Innovation-Promotion/Wouldn-****-be-good-to-manage-our-thread-subscriptions-more/m-p/8712272#M235484 the consensus is that some sort of organisation would be useful. Thanks mr_mitch, philiplittle40 and sanwich for your comments  :smileyhappy:


I think it would be useful to have the option of ordering posts by:

  • Chronological order by OP or the most recent post
  • The type of forum e.g. blog, contribute, off topic, help etc.
  • Those threads marked solved/unsolved (applicable threads only)
  • Alphabetical by subject/title/keyword

I’ve also posted this on the developers hub thread to see if anyone knows if this is possible http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Contribute-Innovation-Promotion/Developers-Hub-Get-Involved/td-p/7794232/page/16.  I still don’t know the answer to this yet and won’t get a response from giffgaff until this idea is posted here and gets enough support with 20 kudos.


So, what do you think?  Comments most welcome, whether you support the idea or not  :smileyhappy:


Thanks everyone,

This certainly has been waiting ages for some attention, when I have searched for a thread that interested me (prior to the new community host) it was very time consuming so I have some firsthand experience with this.
