Threads without Alerts RRS feed

  • Question

  • How do I search for all of my threads without alerts?

    How can update all threads without alerts to have an alert with having to go into every thread without one and click add alert?

  • Clicking on "My Forums Threads" gives you a list of all your threads. The ones you have not marked as Alerts are those missing the Bell icon.

    Whereas listing all the threads with your Alerts is catered for with the "My Alerts" option, there is no such option for showing only items with No Alerts.

    (I don't really see why that option is needed. But of course the ways people use the forums are different too so that opinion reflects my usage of Alerts (=seldom) only.)

  • 10-4 for on the bells.

    i probably wouldn't use it going forward but it seems like posts from the old msdn forum "lost" there alert settings so most of my older posts don't have alerts.  They might not have been lost, maybe I never setup them up but I'm fairly confident I did.

    So I'm looking for a way to clean up my old threads quickly

  • Mike, you are correct, we didn't migrate alerts over from the old forums system.
