This task tracks the work and steps involved with extending support for automatic topic subscriptions from DiscussionTools to all editing interfaces (see ===Editing interfaces below for definition).
|1.||Introduce automatic subscriptions to DiscussionTools||1) Validate auto-subscribe actions – posting a new comment and starting a new topic – align with peoples' expectations and needs, 2) Validate the first-run experience appears at the right moment and is sufficiently informative, and 3) listen for demand for auto-subs to be extended to other interfaces||T284836, T262103, T282636|
|2.||Introduce automatic subscriptions to all editing interfaces||1) Provide volunteers greater access to, and flexibility with, using functionality they have come to value and depend on||T290778, T290779. Note: this step assumes this is sufficient demand for this to happen.|
