For as long as Etsy Teams have existed, members and leaders have been asking for communication tools. Now, anyone on a team has the option to subscribe to a daily discussion forum digest email that will deliver a summary of the team’s most recent discussion activity directly to your inbox!
The purpose of discussion digests is to allow team members to engage with one another from wherever they get email, instead of having to log in to a team’s page on Etsy to see what’s up and engage in the discussion.
This way team members who aren’t in the habit of checking the team discussion forum every day can still keep track of team happenings simply by checking their email once they opt in. Digest emails are also a foundation step towards more intelligent and flexible mass communication tools in the future.
What’s so cool about this?
Once team members subscribe to the discussion digest, posting a message to the discussion boards becomes a broadcast email to everyone on the team who has signed up for the digest. Captains and members alike can use this tool for announcements, policy changes, or to spread the word about upcoming team events.
Love it. How do I sign up?
Simply go to your team’s profile page, click the “Subscribe to email digest” link on the left sidebar and, voilà! (You can also check out this handy instructional video we put together.) You’ll have to do this for each team individually, because each team sends out its own dedicated digest email. To manage your team digests, go to Your Account, click on Settings in the left column and then visit the Emails tab (or click here). Scroll down and you will see the “Team Digests” box. Click the checkbox next to each team for which you would like to receive a daily digest, then click Save Settings and you’re all set.
