New notification type - accepted answer!

Just found the new notification type: Answer accepted

The only issue is: why it's labeled with my avatar? Has to be question author!

And the text has to be:

"Question Author Name" accepted your answer to the question ...

    Just to close this question: at the end of August 2018 the notification is still labeled by my name, not by the name of the question author!

    Thanks for testing the new notification and providing feedback Vadim. I will take your feedback (I agree with what you suggested) to IT to discuss your changes.

    Best,

    • We are trying our best to push these things through Veselina. As soon as we get Email notifications and filter by primary tag in Activity Streams rolled out, we will be able to divert more resources to improving the Notification service further. This does not mean we are not working on that at all. The feature is being refined to make sure that we fulfill the needs in a manner that is feasible and compatible to our new platform. I will share mock ups when they are ready. Thanks for your patience, interest, and support Veselina.

      Best,

    Why is this a notification? What further action is needed in this case? Send OP flowers or something?

    There was no such notification on SCN (at least not in the email) and I couldn't care less for it personally. I've heard some people wanted this but it could've gone to the activity stream together with likes and votes IMHO.

    • Yeah, one would think that this day and age we shouldn't argue what's more important to whom and just be able to set our personal preferences in the user profile. If only there was some kind of digital innovation for that...

    Today I have it the first time myself, and I think I found a pattern.

    The title was visible when it initially arrived as accepted answer.

    Then the user added a comment to the accepted answer and the title vanished

    In the second case the user added comment first and accepted the answer after the comment, and the title stays

    Huh, that's another change to the production environment that comes as a surprise to me. (-> there wasn't an announcement about it).

    I don't know how ya'll feel about it, but I just created an idea that such things should be done in a beta-environment first: https://ideas.sap.com/D40685

    • It seems that all the old notifications look like this and no, the questions were not deleted (normally I don't even answer in those). I used the answer list in my profile and then searched for the corresponding notifications (give or take, there is no time stamp). My answer here was accepted on February 21st but the notification doesn't show the question link.

    Looks like notifications about accepted answer are not working now!

    I don't see notifications of this type, also can't find the same messages in the activity list!

    New experiments?

    • So its working for you Jurgen? And not for Vadim...In either case I am afraid I will not be able to get an answer for this this week. My IT contact is in a workshop and thus I have not been able to get in touch with him. I have however reached out to him via Email and awaiting further information.

    Interesting finding:

    A few minutes ago I received a notification about Accepted answer to this question: https://answers.sap.com/questions/148864/transport-best-practices.html

    The notification was with the correct Question title: "transport best practices"

    Then I marked it as read and after few minutes I refreshed the notifications tab.

    Now I see the standard bug:
