Real-time Participation Notifications

If you're opted-in to real-time participation emails, you'll be notified via email any time someone replies to one of your threads or comments, ensuring you're immediately aware of the latest developments. NOTE: These real-time participation emails are separate from your community subscription emails like the Daily Digest.

How do I receive these emails?
Unless explicitly disabled, you'll automatically receive these emails when users reply to your threads and comments.

TIP: Even if you haven't participated in a thread but are interested in what your peers are discussing, you can manually enable participation emails for a specific thread. Just navigate to the thread and click the star icon.
