Where do we configure an E-mail address for our account here? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've never seen this before: a forum so inept that it lacks a basic user control panel.

    If we're subscribed to a thread on here, how are we to be notified? There's no E-mail account associated with our user ID.

  • In the upper left of most forum pages is a "Quick access" pull down menu. Select "My settings". On that page you can enter the email address for alerts.

    Edit:

    You have asked in the wrong forum. This forum is for questions and discussions about the TechNet Wiki. I will move this question to a more appropriate forum. I think the Profile and Recognition System forum is better.

  • Thanks for that information. But that is incredibly poor UI.

    First, this control is extremely obscure. It's plain text, with not so much as a colored box around it. It's also floating in an area that's nowhere near your user ID. It's not even in the statistics box for your account.

    More importantly, "quick access" doesn't tell you anything. Quick access to what? And I'm not looking for "quick access;" I'm looking for a property of my account, which is accessed by clicking on your user ID in the upper-right corner of the page. Wouldn't it make far more sense to put this menu there?

    And finally: If this is the "quick access" option to get to these settings, what is the "slow" method?
