One of the most useful things about a wiki is the ability to monitor changes made to it by e-mail or RSS feed. You can watch how your wiki develops and jump in to relevant conversations.
To help make this activity even easier for you, we’ve made some exciting additions to monitoring on Wikispaces! You can now:
- monitor discussion changes via e-mail,
- follow specific discussion topics,
- and manage all your notifications in one handy place.
If you would like to receive notifications when someone makes changes to your pages or discussions, go to “Recent Changes” on your space and then the “notify me” tab. There, you can monitor both pages and discussions via e-mail. Simply choose which space changes you would like to monitor and you’re ready to go.
We have also added a feature to monitor specific discussion topics. Simply go to the discussion page and topic you would like to follow and click “Monitor This Topic.” By default, you will receive e-mail notifications when new posts are made.
Finally, you are able to easily manage everything you are monitoring. To see a full list, click on your username. This will take you to your dashboard. Scroll down to the Monitoring section and click “Show everything you are monitoring.” There, you can change or remove space, discussion, or page notifications.
