Ticket T132977 enables users to disable notifications types from within notifications. This is not full-featured volume control, as has been discussed, but more of a shortcut to the Notifications Preferences. Before we create that capability, it will be desirable to first have a look at the categories and the Preferences page to address certain inconsistencies. These are discussed in T132426, and include:
- Make the Mentions category apply to all mentions, including flow mentions.
- Make the Talk Page category apply to all talk page notifications, including Flow notifications.
- Eliminate the Flow preference/category per se and replace it with one or more preferences/categories defined functionally--e.g., "Discussion updates" or similar.
The current categorization is (see also [[ https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:DisplayNotificationsConfiguration | Special:DisplayNotificationsConfiguration ]]):
