Summary0002447: Bulk set notifications for users / defaults
DescriptionThe ability to go into an admin screen for setting up notifications. All checkboxes would be in an intermediate state (neither off or on). Anything you set would become the new settings for all users.

Additionally, these settings would become the *defaults* for all new users. Currently the defaults are hard-coded, so this is a great way to fix that without introducing around 100 new config options. This could work by saving these settings under the guest user account (those aren't going to be used for anything real), then new users would get them copied from that guest account.

I've implemented support for setting defaults for new members (

I haven't implemented support for mass-resetting for existing users, because I think that's questionable, and definitely less important. For example, what if a user has a more sophisticated setting already? What if there's a GDPR concern about opting people into things? What if you want to do it for only certain usergroups? I think this is something left out of the core product, people can do what they need with custom scripts in the rare case they need it.

I also haven't implemented support for setting defaults for individual categories (e.g. a particular news category), just the main notification types.
