Alert! There's something you need to know...
Our new alerts application is out the door! Here's how they work...
Hello, it's Sara (aka lovebunny), back again for a second swim in the guest-blogger pond, and of course, to share some social media -type news.
Our new alerts application is out the door! Alerts have one purpose: to connect you to the information you need. Here's how they work...
Once you log in, glance up to the top-right of your screen, to your welcome message. You should see a link there telling you how many new alerts you have. Follow this link and you'll find your own private Mission Control.
Alerts are quick and easy ways for us to flag up things we think are important to you, without cluttering up your email inbox. If a question you asked is answered, if there's a survey we'd like to share, if we publish an article on something you expressed an interest in... for all these things, we'll send you an alert.
Quick and dirty is what it's all about. Alerts aren't fancy emails, they're just short notes directing you around the site. You can delete them as you go, or you can allow nature (ok, our techies) to take the lead: once opened, alerts self-destruct after 30 days (unopened, they last 60 days). There's no need to save, forward or reply to alerts, either.
For Q and A users... In the past, we sent you an email when your questions were answered. Now, we'll send you an alert AND an email. Too much information? No problem - just log in, click settings and then head to your Q and A settings to turn one or both of these options off.
Final tip: log in, log in, log in. Logging in is the easiest way to get the absolute most out of lovemoney.com.
Ok that's me, over and out!
