How Users Get Notification

 

Introduction

By enabling Follow/Unfollow feature, you can allow your users to follow specific celebrity, content categories and/or multi-part content (Series). Users will automatically get a notification when the categories, content and/or celebrity they follow is updated. That means when a new content is added to the specific category they follow, or an episode is added to the multi-part content they follow, or a cast & crew is added to a content whom they follow.

When users visit their profile page, they can see which actor/actress, content categories and/or multi-part content they are following. Users can also unfollow the specific actor/actress, content categories and/or multi-part content which they are already following. Users can also see the total number of followers for the specific cast and crew, content categories and multi-part content in the website.

 

Note: Currently, this feature is enabled only for Revo Template.
