Inside HQ: Take a Tour of the New Message Center

 Mailersuite_07062015_InsideHQ_MessageCenter_vFINAL_blog

Connecting with Geocachers is Now Easier than Ever

After a few months of testing, getting feedback from the geocaching community and making changes, the brand new Message Center is no longer in beta. With this new feature, you can send and receive messages from Geocaching.com and the Geocaching Intro app.

Watch this short video, featuring two Geocaching HQ developers who worked on the project, to learn a little bit more about what went into the new Message Center.

Since first releasing Message Center beta, we’ve added a few things and tweaked a few others based on your feedback including:

  • Email notifications now display the content of the message that triggered the notification .
  • You can contact another player just by clicking the link on their profile or you can access their profile by clicking a player’s avatar image from the Message Center.
  • The envelope icon in the header now updates every 15 seconds to alert you that you have updated conversations.
  • You can contact a geocache owner directly from the geocache page. The GC code and name will be automatically inserted into the message.

And don’t worry – improvements to the Message Center won’t stop here. We’ll continue to improve the Message Center based on your feedback.

Check out the new Message Center now.

Es war noch nie so einfach, andere Geocacher zu kontaktieren.

Mit dieser neuen Funktion kannst Du Mitteilungen über Geocaching.com und die Geocaching-Intro-App verschicken und empfangen.
