    Hi,

    There’s one thing I’m missing in FEPM Pro : the ability for the users to mark (or bulk marking) announcements as read without deleting them, so that the corresponding alerts disappear.

    Let’s take an example. A user has been away for a long time and didn’t connect to the site. Meanwhile, numerous announcements have been published. When he’s back, the “unread” header will stay there until he either actually reads (or at least display in another window using right-click | open in another tab) each of these announcements or bulk delete them. What if he wants to get rid of the alerts header while deciding to read the announcements later ?

    Or maybe I missed something ?

    Thanks.

    Hi Shamin,

    > When user open that announcement it automatically marked as read

    Of course but that’s not the problem I explained in my example. Let’s assume the user has dozens of announcements pending and he doesn’t want to open them now one by one to get rid of the alerts header. How should he proceed ?

    Currently, what I do in such a situation is to right-click each announcement and open it in another tab. I don’t necessarily read them because they might be too old or irrelevant. Then I close all tabs and refresh the page to get rid of the alerts header.

    I’d like to be able to bulk mark multiple announcements as read.

    Thanks.

    I understand your concern.
    If you can use hooks you can use fep_announcement_table_bulk_actions, fep_announcement_bulk_individual_action and fep_bulk_action_message to achieve what you wanted.

    I can add this feature in next version of this plugin.

    Yes, please. Since this feature is already available for messages, users are somewhat confused to not have the same possibility for announcements.

    Thanks in advance.
