Thanks for the request. Your vote is counted
We have notifications improvement in the future, but unfortunately no est for now.
If there will be any progress from our side - I will text here with the update
Just wanted to reply in here as well as I’d really be glad for any further guidance on Notifications improvements, and related Actions/Automations. I see @Oshyan that this was in fact the very first topic that prompted you to post in here. I think the response we have here from the team is about the last I’ve heard of any plans, and hard to say that was anything concrete:
Really want to add my vote for prioritization of this essential feature of Fibery!
Yes, I would really like to know more about the plans for notifications too. I went into implementation and use of Fibery knowing of this limitation and accepting it, but in practice it has proven to be harder to deal with than I hoped. Fibery is still a big improvement for us in many respects, but it is hard-hard-hard to keep people “situationally aware”, on task, etc. And I include myself in that! My list of open tasks seems to only grow as every time I look at it I generally have something to add and see things I should be dealing with but have been neglecting.
Unfortunately the response I got from @Polina_Zenevich on Intercom back in July was not that encouraging (and post-dates her response here):
Hi, thank you for the feedback! Indeed this feature requested a lot. We have it in the backlog, but no near future plans so far…
Wanted to flag this up again, this well-written comment describes the problem I am having on a daily basis, too:
For context, I am really missing the concept of a “Watcher”:
In most Work Mgmt stuff like Jira, Asana, etc. you can be added as a “watcher” and you get notifications about key activity in an Entity, for example a comment that is not specifically @mentioned to you, or when status changes. In Notion, you can be added as a “share” and at least you get some notifications, like when comments are made. So they have this in some format as well.
In Fibery, the only way I can let somebody know about an entity is to force @mention them. So it’s awkward if I have somebody I’d like to keep abreast of an Entity who is not the assignee. I have to go into comments, @mention him/her, and say "we just moved this from “planning” to “execution,” otherwise they won’t know.
I’ll add that with the actual existing of a Workflow Extension, it seems there is a lot of potential in Fibery that would be superior to Notion or Coda, which don’t have any concept of “workflow” unless you build formulas and make workarounds. So I am really hoping the Workflow extension can pick up some integration with Notifications - soon! - as this is something that really plagues my team on a daily basis.
