Just in time for our third birthday we’re giving more power to our Members to customize their FoodHub experience. Now, rather than showing the same information to everyone, you can choose the information you want to see on your My FoodHub page and in your inbox as the FoodHub Fresh Sheet – now made fresher in a digest format.
Setting up your Notification Preferences
Changing your alerts and notification preferences is easy. The first step is to log in to FoodHub. You’ll be taken immediately to your My FoodHub page where the ‘Notifications’ tab shows what’s been happening on the site since your last visit.
From there, click the ‘Notification Preferences’ tab and simply check or uncheck any of the boxes to start customizing your content. The boxes you leave checked under ‘Email’ will determine the type of content you see in the FoodHub Fresh Sheet. Those that you leave checked under ‘Dashboard’ will indicate what you want to see front and center when you log in.
Setting up your Communication Preferences
We’ve made it easy for you to tell us WHAT you want to see with Notification Preferences, and it’s just as easy to tell us you want to get emails in the first place. There are only two categories to manage: Emails and Fresh Sheets. You can find them both here on your account’s Communication Preferences page.
What kinds of emails would I get from FoodHub?
There are several valuable notifications that FoodHub sends as single emails including …
- Notifications from your Message Center
While you can choose to see if you have any new messages waiting for you in your FoodHub Message Center from your dashboard, choosing to receive emails from FoodHub means that you’ll get an alert direct to your inbox.
When someone recommends you as a great person to do business with, you get an automatic alert that enables you to accept the recommendation and allow it to appear on your profile for the rest of the community to see.
- When another Member has indicated that they do business with you
If you’re a partner, association, distributor or farmers’ market that is both a FoodHub Member and included in our list of affiliates (like the Portland Farmers Market or Charlie’s Produce) you can receive an alert every time someone adds you to their profile.
- When you get a Marketplace post response
Not sure if your Marketplace posts are being seen? Electing to receive email alerts from FoodHub is a good way to make sure you’re not missing any potential business opportunities.
What’s in the FoodHub Fresh Sheet?
The brand new Fresh Sheet is a completely customizable alert optimized to show only those updates that are relevant to you. You can choose what you see in the Fresh Sheet from the Notifications Preferences tab on your My FoodHub page. If you opted OUT of receiving the Fresh Sheet, but would like to take advantage of the weekly digest format to keep you up to date, visit the Communication preferences page and select the ‘yes’ radio button under ‘Would you like to receive the FoodHub Fresh Sheet?’.
