Get Pushed….


I spent some time to day with Jim Stout, the CEO of Invoke Systems. He asked a question, and typical of the way I do things, I told him the answer was on the blog… And that it was easier to get pushed information that  pull it down… 🙂 Well Community Server has a great feature…


1. Make sure you are signed into blogs.msdn.com In the case of my blog, look in the top right hand corner. If you are not signed in, go ahead and create a user account.




2. Once signed in, in the top left hand corner, look for the Email Alerts link.




3. Select the option that makes the most sense to you. I want every comment, etc… but most folks will probably only want the second option.



 


Now, every time a blog post is made, you will get an email from admin@blogs.msdn.com with the post’s contents.

    Ben,

    I have stopped getting msdn blog alert emails. I used to get them till about 3 weeks ago. I had my out of office turned off for a few days. It appears that after I came back I stopped getting alerts from all of the msdn blogs

    Any idea why they have stopped coming? or how to fix it?

    thanks,

    Arvind,

    Have you tried unsubscribing and then resubscribing? That would probably be what I would do to fix it. Other than that, I will check with my internal folks to see what they suggest. LMK if that works. 🙂

    Thanks!

    Ben
