Please do not use this thread for support questions or bug reports. Those questions can be posted in the relevant forum (we just don't provide official support for 1.5 yet, which means we can't provide ticket support for it).

It is. That was also a bug and also fixed. You can see it in the Resolved Bugs forum.

Great job guys!

@Chris D

Two quick questions:

  1. Will the {FirstName} tag work in the messages?
  2. Do the tags also work in the titles of the message?
Thanks a lot!

We're leveraging the welcome email to encourage users to:
1) Connect account with Facebook/Twitter/Google
2) Add an avatar aka profile pic
3) Upgrade account

After sending out a mass alert to a secondary usergroup, was very surprised to find that many of them got emails. What user pref affects this? This one?:

Automatically watch threads that you create or when you reply...
  • and receive email notifications of replies
I'm in some hot water because it's ended up as email spam for many users, instead of the alert I intended it to be. :(

Unless there's an add on involved, here, or you used the Email Users feature by mistake, that shouldn't happen.

Use of the Alert Users feature would never send emails.

Ok, thanks for confirming. Yeah must be either an add-on, or some users are imagining things. Either is entirely possible. Definitely didn't use Email Users by mistake :)

Thank you. The quoted text is in the section that explains welcome conversations, which is why I asked.
