Re: I know I missed the opportunity. Need a better way to link Community Rewards to My Account.

@JoyLuck 

 

Wow....I have been using filters for years.....that is a good idea if I can set a filter to forward to another email address. In the old days we called that a “Brain Wave”😀😀

@LurganIeUk  why not change the email address in selfserve (username and have mods change the account address)

 

Pm rarely if ever sends out account related emails .

I filter everything, I have so many rules my stomach turns when I go into filters.

I just recently noticed my rule for bigfoot. That place really needs dusting. 

Unless you will be penalized for traffic, just forward it and trash it

If everyone goes back and rereads my OP I would like Community notifications, but NOT to the email address that is linked to “My Account” as that email is more business oriented for billing etc.  I would rather see the “recreational type” of Community emails to one of my NON  business oriented email addresses. If Public Mobile can provide a unique link like the referral link, why not use that instead. 


Referral links and codes get handed out.  Someone could then get into your self-serve and community account.  I only get emails for Private Messages and when I am tagged

Great point. "Referral links and codes get handed out.  Someone could then get into your self-serve and community account"

 

Maybe the could do another unique and secret link for linking to the Community for rewards.

It took a long time fo get referral links away from phone numbers.  I wouldn't want more codes or links to be able to sign in.  Plus you need to start with your email for your self-serve account.  No point signing up for that with your email then being sent a different link to use to log into your account

Thanks all. 

 

Once again please read the original post. 

 

I really don't want to hear what you do or why you think it can't happen. 

 

To simplify...there must be a way to have an email address for your My Account and a different email address for the Community Account and use some type link when you set up Community to attach your Community Account to your My Account. 

 

So far the best idea was from @JoyLuck  and I think I have it set up using a filter.

I read your OP. Seems it's a suggestion idea.

So I'm going to go ahead and say why I don't think it can happen anyway:)

Fixing actual problems goes at a snails pace around here. Changing the system like that would be way down any priority list if one exists.

So, as we do around here, we suggest workarounds like JoyLuck did.

I use one or two of the ideas mentioned in this thread.

 

I know...you didn't want to hear it...but I'm an opinionated old sot and this is the internet.:)

I am fairly active on here yet I am emailed about nothing at all from the community. Just don’t need any of my email boxes being filled up. When I go to the community I see the list of new activity to topics that I’ve posted on or if I am mentioned etc. Good enough fir me!

Depending on what email provider you are using a rule may be able to be  set up to forward specific emails to another address. 

 

Thanks you had the best work around solution!!! I use GMAIL for both. I have set a filter to forward from Email A to Email B and also set up Email A to delete all "filtered" email. So the emails only show on Email B. 

 

B U T  If Public Mobile was to ask for suggested improvements, this would be one from me!! Not everyone has the time, or fortitude, the know how to what to do, or how to program the band aid resolution. 

 

To everyone else that responded....Thank You
