IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Onsite notificiations will be reset to 0 (zero) for all members on February 15, 2024 as we update security on Mayo Clinic Connect.

The Digest will be sent as usual.

***

Many of you use the Daily Digest sent to your email to see new activity in the community. Did you know you can also use notifications on the site?

Just look for the Bell icon in the upper-right corner. The blue circle tells you how many notifications you have relevant to you.

You receive an onsite notification when someone

  • @mentions you
  • replies to your comments
  • reacts to your posts
  • comments to discussions you participate in (started or commented) whether you follow the group or not 
  • new discussions started in groups you follow
  • new newsfeed posts in blogs you follow

You can also sort your notifications by type:

Onsite notifications help you stay connected without leaving the site. Learn more about How to customize your notifications and settings.

Please clean house by eliminating posts older than 2 years! There is a multitude of posts from before 2020 on here! Medical treatments change so rapidly and Mayo should advocate for the best and most modern practices, not posts from 2011 and 2012.
Thank you.

Great! As a Mayo Development member, I am glad to know that the outdated information will be quickly removed so that only the most up-to-date information is available on the Mayo site. People trust Mayo! Thank you!

Colleen, Thanks for your help! This morning I started my cleanup, as my daily email was getting long and a bit muddied up with things that I wondered why I was seeing and having to sort through each day. On rushed days I had to scan through about 50 posts subjects to select what to prioritize to read on days i might only have a few minutes. I found that I was inadvertently “Following “ a couple of groups that were’t very relevant to me, hence my long daily Connect email. I love knowing that I can search for and use any topics as needed within any Connect group, but your advice helped clean up my daily email to what I’d like to prioritize in my view. Thanks so much for the tips!

Hi Debbie,
I'm glad that you were able to adjust your notification preferences to reduce the overwhelm. I'm sure you've already done this, but for the sake of others too, here are some things people can do:

Unfollow support groups you are no longer interested in
1. go to the Support group directory
2. Click "Following" to unfollow

If you're interested in following a specific group, but no longer want messages on a specific discussion, you can mute that discussion only.
1. Go to the discussion you wish to no longer participate in or get notifications about.
2. Click the bell icon in the bottom right of the first message.
3. Select "Mute this discussion"
4. Save setting.

Hello @maggiemay37, Welcome to Connect. We have a wealth of patient discussions sharing their experiences along with what they have learned along the way. Can we help you connect with members who share your condition?

On the day I was born the angels failed to sing! But I soldier on with my ailments and keep taking the tablets. My list of ailments is a wee bit depressing ie, arthritic knees: botched right hand operation with constant painful fingers. I suffer from Tinnitus my head feels like Big Ben. Heart operation few years back. I could bore you for hours but do not wish to do so. Who said look on the bright side of life? Must have been a real magician.
