I’m excited to announce the beta rollout of category subscriptions on Lithosphere. Subscribing and keeping track of new content is one of the primary ways for a community to increase the engagement and ‘stickiness’ of their user base. If a user is interested in all the boards within a category, it was previously very difficult managing all your subscriptions.
Now with category subscriptions, we have a way for users to opt-in and manage all board subscriptions within a category in a single interface:
A user can opt-in for all board subscriptions within a category, or select a partial subset through the interface. Like all other subscriptions, category subscriptions can also be managed within your settings:
We're continuing to gather feedback from some of our early beta users and adding minor updates to the feature. Category subscriptions was a longstanding request in Lithosphere, but my hope is that this gives our users a better idea on some of the quality-of-life type improvements that our product team is focusing on for 2019.
Look for a GA release of category subscription soon and reach out to me through PM if you’re interested in trying out the beta.
