How can I change the number of email notifications I get?

If you feel that you are getting too many (or too few) email notifications from the UK Health and Learning Disabilities Network, you can change this in your user preferences settings:

  • Make sure you are logged in.
  • Click on your profile picture in the top right corner, then click on the gear wheel preferences icon in the drop-down menu:


  • The click on where it says “Emails”:

On the next screen you can select your preferences.

By default, you will receive individual messages from: threads you have contributed in, threads you have been mentioned in, and threads you are watching. You will also receive a regular digest if you have not visited the community, and a notification when someone has sent you a private message.

You can change any of these in your email preferences. For example, if you’d like an email digest less frequently than daily, you can choose to get a digest every 3 days, every week, or every two weeks.

If, on the other hand, you would like a notification for each new post that is made on the forum, you can tick “Send me an email for every new post”.
