More than one email address to receive notifications

Hi,

First I am not sure whether this idea should go in this "wish list" section or in "Website Features, Requests, Bugs, Discussions". I don't really get the difference. Couldn't these be merged ?

Ok, now here is my request :

We are a couple now hosting cyclists but only one email address can be set in the profile to receive notification emails. Could it be possible to set multiple emails addresses so that the two of us receive notifications ?

Because my partner often forget to notify me ... :)

Thank you for everything !

Longstanding request

That is a longstanding request, but from a very small number of people.

What we tell people is to use 2 email addresses and 2 accounts. For gmail users like you, this is super easy. Gmail allows "plus addressing" so you can just have you+secondhouse@gmail.com, for example. Make a second account, manage it, email notifications go to the same exact address.

Sometime in the future we might be able to do this, but it affects such a small number of users it's hard for it to rise to the top. However, I did create a feature request, https://github.com/rfay/Warmshowers.org/issues/311

Thanks!

And, yes, the two forums should be consolidated.

If you use gmail you can

If you use gmail you can create a filter to whenever you receive an email from wsl@warmshowers.org gmail will forward a copy to the address of your choice. Go to Settings then the filter tab.

That's how I finally did it,

and indeed it does exactly what I want so that's cool. And I guess it will work with any other good email provider ...
