Hey Monday Community!
It would be super nice for us to be able to add users to boards without them automatically being notified.
We can (painfully) turn off their notifications at each and every user level (if the person subscribing them to the board has admin rights even), and then (painfully) add them back, but when you are working on a “plan”, and want to plot people into the plan and do some review and pre-work, before discussing it with them (OR sharing the board) - they may not even know they’ll be on the project, it is very silly to send them an invite TO said board.
It would be great if sending a notification during invitation (much like sharepoint let’s you deselect the email) could be OPTIONAL, thus allowing us to choose when the invite goes out by Monday (with less than perfect timing), or via a link in an email where we have control over the messaging.
Also, while I’m on that… would be REALLY nice if when we do use email (both subscribing to board, and inviting to Monday), if we could type a short message indicating context and supporting the invitation (especially helpful if we were to share outside our organization - which we’d like to do eventually - for real collab).
Our current workaround is to build a temporary text column, and plot names in it until the board is shared. This not only makes for extra work, but it means that we can’t utilize any dashboards/reporting elements that support resource utilization, because it’s no longer a people field.
EDIT (ADD) > A potential alternative option might be - Allow us to use people on boards they are not subscribed to, and even as I add this - I see value for internally working on management level organizational data where people fields add value, but can’t be used because the people are not part of the leadership group needing to see that data about them.
Anyone else struggle with this one?! Chime in… Thanks!
