Thanks for your quick reply. Let me investigate this and research with Veritas Prep. (the magic happens on their end really).

Thanks!

Hi,

Is it possible that I can follow topic (subscribe) to filtered topics? For example, I would like to follow topics only from OG19 for DS questions.

Thanks

Thank you so much for your suggestions Probus!
I think they underline a few weaknesses we have on the site (with educating new users about the feature and how to do things). I think it is time we finally do something.

1. To embed/attach messages into a post, you just have to attach them to your reply - here are more instructions here: https://gmatclub.com/forum/how-to-post- ... 94459.html

2. Notes - we have them but nobody uses them unfortunately: https://gmatclub.com/forum/ucp.php?i=notes&mode=note (they used to be more prominent but we have buried them since then - see if this is not what you thought/had in mind)

3. https://gmatclub.com/forum/search.php?view=search_tags is indeed limited. We have an update however, and you should use the next gen version of it - here: https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-questio ... 93604.html (this has gone out in a recent GMAT Club newsletter - do you get these?)



Thanks bb,
Oh yes especially for people like me had there been a video on How to use the platform I could have avoided questions 1 &2.
Nonetheless i did try searching on the site , it never bought me to the link that you have shared for 1 & 2.

Yes, a video on hot to use the platform would be much helpful.

@ Notes So just like we have tabs shown in image could we have something like My Notes . More upfront is the tab, more user's could use it. If it gets lost in Tags Like It currently is - a subsection of Bookmarks, its functionality is undermined.

In a Grocery Store if the item is displayed upfront people tend to at least view it or even try it out. If its stacked under some Items they never get to know about it ( they may be buying this item from other store thinking its unavailable here)

Is my argument convincing? :)

@3 Ohh Awwsome bb, functionality is rolled out last week . Applaud the commitment the The Team GmatClub. :thumbup: . I should have not missed on this update . Let me check on my end why and how did i miss on this


Thanks

Thanks bb for update !

I have checked the button some new features are added, Well done.

may be it is not fully functional, it shows my 1000 post while i have 2700+ posts.

As my personal opinion, it is not as interesting by look as it was before.

Thanks for support.

Hello,

When registering, I specifically selected to not receive any emails from GMAT club. That was yesterday. Since then I’ve received 2 advertising emails. Kind of frustrating.

Hm.... that's unusual. Sorry about that. I am happy to unsubscribe you from marketing emails.
We send out a weekly summary newsletter with best posts for the week. Are you OK to receive that?

P.S. I do not see you being subscribed or receiving any marketing emails. Are you sure those were from GMAT Club?
I see that one email was sent to you and that's it. I am not sure what email that was but it was not 2.

vinayakvaish - You are amusing! :)

Quality of practice test and difficulty level of questions are quite subjective. What is hard for you may be exceedingly easy for me. To be clear, GMAC spends a huge sum of money to create one single official question. Why do you think experimental questions appear on the test?

I, for one, know that nothing comes closer to GMAT Club Quant questions; if we consider the return on investment, GMAT Club Quant tests could supersede GMAT Prep resources. That said, I agree that the quality of GMAT Club Verbal questions could be improved. To say that Verbal practice tests are poor designed is extremely unfair on people who design those questions and who have benefited immensely from those tests, including me. I am no expert in Verbal but my GMAT Club Verbal sectional score was always in sync with that in GMAT Prep and real GMAT. To say the balance is haywire is even more unfair. Also, what do you mean by "controversial" questions? I presume you mean either the question quality is not good or the solutions provided are not justified. So, are those questions controversial? No.

All the best and happy learning!

Thanks for your suggestion. We do have a suggestions topic in the support forum for anyone else thinking of making a suggestion.

The PMs are organized in the way that the forum software was designed to deliver them and display in a chronological fashion without grouping ability. (Which frankly in grouping in gmail sometimes backfires for me).

We will look into this though we often end up prioritizing our limited dev resources for big items such as error log, mobile app, etc.

My Frustration: I Cant Unsubscribe EMAIL Notifications for Topics While Retaining Website Notifications.

Details:
I went to the notification settings where there are options to enable / disable notifications of various types through email, website, app, etc.

It appears that the ability to DISABLE EMAIL ONLY is locked down for followed topics, forums etc. (see screenshot below)

firefox_2019-07-23_06-35-53.png [ 70.5 KiB | Viewed 570 times ]


When I go to individual topics to follow unfollow them, I have to completely unfollow them. I cant continue receiving notifications on site and mobile.

I also tried to use the unsubscribe button on the emails that I receive. It did the same thing - unfollwed the topic completely - no emails + no website notifications.

I do not want my email to be bombarded with every comment on every topic, but I do want to continue to be able to view the notifications when I login to the website.



Am I missing something? Some setting that I overlooked? Any workaround? .... I could setup some rules and filters on my email client, But I would much rather not receive the emails at all.

Or is there any specific reason why the setting is locked down?


I cant say for sure, but my guess is that it would be easy to fix as the button already exists.

PS: I appreciate all the work that is done on GMAT Club. It has been very helpful in my GMAT prep. So thanks! :)

Hi. Thanks for the post. This is how the forum works unfortunately. That's how the software was built by the original creators (not GMAT club's input).
I will be happy to look into what it will take to revise and modify the inner-workings. However, the original forum creators kind of handled it on a topic by topic and forum by forum basis... sorry.

But here is the good thing, you will only get 1 notifications about a reply in each topic. If you are not interested in that topic, as long as you don't visit that topic, you will not receive another notification. The same way with forums, but it is much easier to unsubscribe/unfollow forums.

Hey bb

The filter options, new feature introduced that no longer exists, to select the difficulty level, source of the question, etc. in the forum were very helpful while attempting personalized set of questions.

Unfortunately, that feature doesn't exist anymore.Are there any plans to get that feature back or I shouldn't be hopeful?

I ASK this question before .....but I do not know who remove it ....maybe my mistake ! ......
I do not know why GMATCLUB has a few problem in these days ( near to my exam :cry: )

The ability to combine performance on questions in my error log and my test center seems to be frustrating. It would be great to have a single consolidated view of performance, etc.

I have searched pretty extensively about solutions to this problem and could not find anything on it. If I missed anything, please let me know.

Thank you for your recommendation. It has not been brought up (or at least I have not seen it before). It is a clever idea!

The link to any SC/ DS(all pages) forum page initially showed the timer icon (red/green) if one has attempted the question.
The new user interface for these forum pages doesnt show the icon ( https://gmatclub.com/forum/sentence-cor ... 8/?fl=menu )

Pages in old format still shows.

The timer was a great way to know what all were previously attempted.
bb can we have that feature back in new pages as well

I have seen this bug many times with Daily practice question under My Error Log . Even after attempting all the 4 questions in Veral , it doesn't update. Quant on the other hand is fine and gets updated almost immediately.
