I was triying the demo on the site. I was not able to see the notification feature , I assumed that is because demo site limitations. I noted that the notification icon only appears on the user profile. It would be nice to be able to show notifications on a module or on the top of the activity stream too to avoid the users to have to go to their profile to check each time, I think that notifications on the same stream are a must.
I noted that when posting a link on the activity stream you can´t add directly a Title and description, you have to wait to post and then click on edit to be able to add that info. It would be nice for future update to add the ability to insert the activity emoticons on a post or comment clicking on a emoticon icon showing a list to insert. That way the user dont have to memorize the emoticons codes to use them.

I tried the like option and noted that you can have different reactions but when I tried to use any of them, the result was always like " Demo user liked this" , but no reaction icon, I dont know if this is related to demo site limitations.

I will continue with testing. The release date is not yet clear?

PD: I tried to upload a mp4 file on the gallery and it showed a black window but no video. Mp4 files are not allowed there? Thanks

There are no notification system actions yet. So while the notifications functionality is there and works there's nothing logging any notifications at this time. The next CB Auto Actions feature build will be adding such system actions after its user object looping has been added.

It can be output as a module or using Joomla content prepare usage by setting the asset of the stream to "notifications".

or on the top of the activity stream too to avoid the users to have to go to their profile to check each time, I think that notifications on the same stream are a must.

That doesn't make any design sense, sorry. These are notifications that users are already familiar with using (see Facebook, etc..).

I noted that when posting a link on the activity stream you can´t add directly a Title and description, you have to wait to post and then click on edit to be able to add that info.

That's because it attempts to parse out the title and description from the URL first. This is how linking has always worked in CB Activity with no plans to change it at this time.

It would be nice for future update to add the ability to insert the activity emoticons on a post or comment clicking on a emoticon icon showing a list to insert. That way the user dont have to memorize the emoticons codes to use them.

Agreed, this was initially supposed to be added but I've yet to work out the design of where to put such an icon. It'll likely be by the submit button to avoid confusion with the other buttons.

I tried the like option and noted that you can have different reactions but when I tried to use any of them, the result was always like " Demo user liked this" , but no reaction icon, I dont know if this is related to demo site limitations.

It is intentionally designed this way to avoid any form of negative impact when using Likes. Click "Demo user liked this" and you'll see each Likes individual reaction, but regardless of what you select it is technically a "Like".

I will continue with testing. The release date is not yet clear?

Should be out later today or early tomorrow.

If you've a support issue regarding CB Gallery please start a CB Gallery support topic. CB Activity does not output the CB Gallery activity; CB Gallery does.

When we tried to add CB Activity as a module, we came up with HTTP Error 500. Is this a known issue?

Edit: Sorry, our mistake, we have not updated the CB Activity module.

When is planned to be released the next Auto Actions version with notifications functionality?

My bad, I meant to add the notification icon for example as a menu icon or as a module on the top of the streams at least, to do not have to go to your profile to know if you got notifications . For example in facebook, you always see the notification and messages icons, not only in "my profile".

I don't know. I'm working through new releases of every plugin. I'm currently working on a CB AntiSpam release.

For the most part you can put it anywhere you want by outputting a stream with the asset set to "notifications", which will render the button. This works in the module, content bot usage, and activity field.
