Notification categories and email
An email message with subject "You have new FamilySearch Notifications" arrived this morning with the message "You have new notifications" and a button link to "VIEW ALL NOTIFICATIONS." So I took a moment to sign in and see goings on. Disappointingly, one was a request to "Thank Contributors" and another stating "80th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor" and indicating that my mother was alive when that attack occurred (she was 7 years old). The other was actually a somewhat useful Record Hint.
I'd sure like to turn the first two away since they really aren't "notifications" of my ongoing work in FamilySearch, but they seem to be grouped with the record hint in the category of "Discoveries". I don't think either message is a discovery, and wouldn't you think that a record hint would fall under "Tree" instead? Maybe it's just me.
Suggestions. Nobody likes spammy messages and notifications, and nobody likes to be baited and leave disappointed. So why not just send the email notifications and include the actual notifications "Thank Contributors" "80th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor - your relative was alive" and "Record Hint" in the message instead of "You have new notifications"? Surely that wouldn't violate privacy, but it would help me decide whether to spend the time to look in on useful ongoing, collaborative research... which is what I try to use FamilySearch for.
Or put Record Hints in separate email notifications, or allow me to disregard the mislabeled "Discoveries" and concentrate on my family history work?
I got the same message and there is NO notification when I log in. I think I read a comment once that these notifications can get lost in the system for some reason.0
