This is concerning notifications (solved)

Hello everyone,

This is a forum question. I was wondering if there is a way to set up your forum account to send you a text message when you get a reply to a post? That would be very helpful if there was a way to do that. Thanks guys!

No there is no way to have a text message sent to you.  You're able to receive email notifications.  From the Forum task bar navigate to: Profile > Forum Profile.  In the left column select: Notifications.  From this page, you're able to select how and when you want notifications sent to you.  I hope this is helpful  ;).

In addition to what Andy says, have a look at this:

I've never tried it and I don't know how applicable it is in different countries.

You can get email notifications .. so if you can find a way to get 'text' notifications for any email received from the forum.......
