Verifying you see all Notifications??

03 Sep 2011 admin In G+ Posts

Ok so I have been using G+ for some time now and any day I reach 9+ notifications I always seem to struggle to make sure that I am not missing one of the + notifications.. So we see a nice list of 9 but after that is seems no matter how you access them there is a very good possibility you can miss one or more.

Am I alone in this? How are you handling looking back through notifications…or do you?

Do you use the mentions only and not care about other notifications?

If you are now part of a critique circle and have been heavily critiquing photos these notifications will really start to add up also…. how are you managing that?

    Click the 'Notifications' in the left nav bar and you can see all notifications, even beyond the 9, in a stream… I use it all the time

    Or from the drop down (when clicking the 9+) click the link that says "view all" and it will take you to the same spot.

    What +Dave Cox said, but also when you go to that screen (notifications on the left) at the top right you will see "All" and a pulldown with "More" you can use the pulldown to filter the notifications – like see mentions, or who added you, etc. I find going through each filter makes it easier to digest.

    +Dave Cox +Lori Heustess I have used both – but it still seems there is many duplications… I would think having a MORE button at the bottom of the notification panel where you can scroll back vs opening an entire page might be much easier…..

    I am just looking for ideas in how people manage notifications so keep them coming…..

    The ones most important to me are posts shared with me, and mentions of my name, that way I do not look like a jerk if I never reply or miss it….

    +Rob Fishback as in you wake up and there are not 9+ ….. Heck either did I till I started commenting on Critique posts… because the catch 22 is – if you comment your married to it unless you mute it and if you mute it you will not learn from others comments..

    I have only seen 9+ once or twice, but I am up late and early. I try to read all of them.
