Self-Subscribe to Digests or Views
Currently the admin can set up an emailed summary on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis for a given table. I'd like to see the ability for users to subscribe to views on their own. QuickBase has this feature allowing users to subscribe, choose to be notified on create, modification, or both, and choose the frequency.

For email Subscriptions and Notifications, I would want the OPTION to allow individual users in the list of qualifying users (eg Role) to be able to self opt out/in of a given subscription AND to select their preferred frequency.

the option is important as some notices need to be enforced by the Admin, others at the discretion of the individual user.

I think this actually goes one further. There needs to be a possibility for users to create there own views and email subscriptions. Somewhere such a suggestion is already in the system

Personal Views/Reports Is more or less clearly defined. This is in fact partial setup access with an ability to create new, copy app-wide, edit and delete "own" views.

With this one, there are two ways to handle:

1. If admin defined view subscription certain people (all, by role?) can add/remove themselves to/from the subscription without changing other subscription settings. There might be slight conflict with existing implementation as we'll need to maintain exclusion list: To: All Users With Access, but not me :)
2. Allow users to have partial setup access to create own subscriptions.

ok... suggest you merge this with Idea 53 (Personal Views/Reports)

Desmond, common in this two ideas is personalization. But the rest is different: views and notifications are distinct areas. I have added some keywords to both ideas to make them stick together. Eventually, I'll classify other ideas too.
