Allow multi users to get notification of content

At the moment only the person who requested the content will receive the notification. I'm suggesting a notification toggle next to each request whether it be a movie or tv show

An option to enable all users to get a notification of new content? I think the user should decide if they want it, agreed?

Maybe a new "Feature" in the Manage users bit for the admin to enable it, but also allow the user to Enable/Disable it

| ksbansal commented over 3 years ago

Yes thats exactly what I meant. A notification toggle for users who want a notification on a movie or tv show that has already been requested. Allow the users to decide if they want the notification.

Yes, as @ksbansal elaborated right here.

It would also be nice to be able to add a secondary email address since some users share their Plex accounts with other people (i.e., their significant others). That way if one requests a movie, both will get the email since there's no way to tell who requested it between the two.

Pushover currently supports something similar with Delivery groups http://updates.pushover.net/post/58172624706/introducing-delivery-groups

Basically, everyone signs up for a pushover account, you add everyone to a group you create, and then configure Ombi to notify the group instead of a particular user key

I was about to suggest something similar. I like the weekly newsletter option but I'd like if there was a way for the user to go and view a list of all TV shows available on Plex and be able to select ones they get notifications for. That way they would get notified instantly if a new episode of their favorite show becomes available. I'm not sure if I am talking about the same thing as everyone else though. This might be better handled elsewhere but I don't want my users to have to deal with multiple systems. Movies would have to be handled differently because they aren't episodic, likely by requests made instead .

It sounds like people here are on the same page about how this would work, but to make sure, the way I think it would work best would be from the search page. When you search for a movie, it would show that it is available, or already requested, or not requested yet. If already requested, a user could add himself to the list of users to be notified when it becomes available. Simply adding yourself to the notification list wouldn't use one of your requests (if a request limit is in place). If a user has previously added himself to the notification list for that movie, and changes his mind, he could remove himself from the notification for that movie.

I like bobbintb's idea to apply something similar for TV. When you search for a series, it would show if it has already been requested, and if it is a continuing show, it would indicate that new episodes will be downloaded. In that case, a user could add himself to the list of users to be notified when a new episode is available.

Agree with the above, would be really nice if when a user searched for something which was already requested if maybe the button changed to "Notify" where clicking it would sign them up to get a notification when that media is downloaded. It's a common request from my friends, asking when something is available and if they could just search for it and click to get Notified it'd be much easier
