I've noticed that I've suddenly started receiving notifications of deletions of group docs. I don't think i have ever received such notifications before. So, either no one ever deleted a document or the notifications have changed.

Two questions:

1. Is this is a new change?

2. Is it a good thing for notifications of document deletions to be sent out to all members of a group? I'm not sure of the answer to this -- I can see how it could be beneficial to have alerts go out (that way, members of a group could be kept aware of such deletions), but so far, at least, I've found it to be surprising.

Perhaps the right way to go about handling this would be:

1. Determine is such notifications represent a change in how things had been working previously.

2. If this is a new change, check with the Group for Group Admins to see what people think about it.

Screenshot attached, btw.

A few months ago, I switched the BP Group Document email notifications so that they were handled by the BP Group Email Subscription plugin (before, BPGD sent out the emails manually, so that people's email subscription/digest settings were not respected). It's probably the case that this is the first time that someone has deleted a document in one of your groups since that happened.

I'm going to assign this back to you, so you (or a member of the Community Team who you reassign the ticket to) can go about asking the group for group admins.

  • Target version changed from 1.2.1 to Not tracked

At this point, this ticket seems to be unrelated to any particular release. I'm going to remove the milestone.

  • Target version deleted (Not tracked)

We've refined file deletion notifications in #2833 (silent deletion). Going to close this one.
