My President is looking for a better way “follow” the things he really cares about without relying on the traditional ‘follow’ function. The reason is that he is often added as a follower for a bunch of items he doesn’t really need updates on - often because people ‘@’ mention him.
Yes, he knows he can remove himself as a follower when needed, but what he’s really trying to do is cut through the clutter and just see updates on the items he really cares about. We’ve thought about using tags, but I feel like that gets messy quickly. Another thought was to make the items he really cares about milestones (vs. tasks) and then build out an advanced report to show everything, but sometimes he need an overall update on the project / initiative and the milestone might not be regularly updated or commented on by users.
Not sure I did a great job of explaining the exact use case / frustrations, but that’s kind of where we’re at right now.
