Rethink how the different types of notifications are displayed on Help:Notifications/Notifications types
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

There is more and more requests to add new notifications to Notification extension. We need to change how they are explained on documentation to make easier a new addition, translate it or have an overview of the different notifications.
Leads:

  • separate "core" Notifications from Notifications generated by extensions (Newsletter, Flow...)
  • improve explainations about how they are displayed (Alerts vs Messages) or actions that may be needed
  • Improve information about what will be the possible actions after people click on the notification
  • Define a template or some document about how to add a new notification to documentation

Trizek-WMF triaged this task as Normal priority.

T132127: Display documentation for notification types configuration on Wikimedia is related. We should also consider re-categorizing (for example, mention and flow-mention are in different categories, user-talk-related Flow things should be in the user talk category, and Flow should not be one big category onto itself), but there's no task for that yet.

Turns out there is a task for it already: T133220: Sort out Notification categories to make them more logical for Preferences.

Trizek-WMF lowered the priority of this task from Normal to Low.

Lowering. ATM, I plan to work on Flow satisfaction survey.

Trizek-WMF raised the priority of this task from Low to High.

Working on it.

I've moved all notifications types from the global page to sub page (all translations already done have been saved).

I'm going to update all notifications to fit T123018: Revise Sorting of Notifications on the Fly-Out Menus.
