  • I know this has been suggested before, but I want to revisit it again.  Please include a good portion of a reply that triggered the Alert in the Alert e-mail text.  And a reminder to keep Arnie's suggestion of including the forum name in the e-mail as well.

  • At least there is now a active 'hotlink' that takes you to the thread.

    Yes, more text in the alert is definitely something we'd like to address. I think we have some limitation on what we can do from Live Alerts today. Adding forum name is a great idea, and one I hope we can address more quickly.

    We get snippets of the reply in the current version of the forums via Alerts, so I know you can do/add more!

  • Anything new on this?  It's been a couple of months since it was  posted.

    Prior to the change in forums, the emailed alert used to include some (I thought all) of the response.  It's a royal pain in the butt to have to open the forum to see what the reply says.
