Hi. There is a problem with this feature request, because the "Notifications" tab is added by the optional extension Echo, and might not be there in all MediaWiki installations.

There isn't a specific task about merging Echo into Core, but there are other tasks similar to this one, at:

@Devirk I'm going to unassign you from this, and remove the easy tag, and merge this into the other task. Thanks for the good ideas and interest, though!
