We have just released some improvements to the way Convofy notifications appear in your inbox. These changes are specifically focused to deliver the most valuable view on your mobile device.
Email on devices is such a big part of staying in touch when you are on the move and probably the most important and relevant use case for notifications from any service that you use; so we used it as the primary canvas for this redesign. Starting now, all notifications show you who the update is from and the email subject always shows the title of the post, so:
The first line of the email body is not just the subject repeated anymore, it shows, at a quick glance what group the notification is from. If the notification is for a link, we show you the source. Knowing the group a post is shared on is very useful because it lets you decide whether you need to take an immediate action or not. For our team, the product management cycles move through our internal “Product Definition” group where new ideas are hatched, to the “Shared Def”. All the while the cool stuff and random ideas we have, are posted to the “Inspiration” group. Any notifications from the Shared Def group means it requires immediate attention versus something shared on the Inspiration group that can be processed later.
We also removed a bunch of additional information so you get a clear view of relevant content with simpler formatting so email is lighter and smoother on most clients. We think these changes will make email notifications more clear, more useful, and easier to manage. We would love to hear what you think.
