I’ve just added another useful feature to the Pulse based on your feedback to the recent major Pulse upgrade. I admit that showing only unread items by default was not ideal (I’m using Pulse in that mode for a long time you know…). So I decided to add the following two buttons – ALL ITEMS | UNREAD ITEMS:

ALL ITEMS option shows unread items as well as all of the items that you’ve read – the gray lines – and is a default one. You can keep using it as your default view or when you need to go back to that post you checked few hours ago and want to locate it quickly. On the other hand UNREAD ITEMS automatically hides all the gray line items.

In addition to this change I’ve also added “Stop watching” link to all the watchlist notification emails. This makes unsubscribing from the respective threads simple.

Thanks for all the feedback to our recent changes.
Enjoy ;)

Thank you. I feel so much better now. New features without losing old features; it’s like the best of both worlds.

One idea for improvement (if you want to hear it). I’d love an option on the screen you posted above, to check several posts (using checkboxes) and remove several at a time. Just a wishlist of mine, but either way, great feature.

I guess I am just old. I don’t like the changes. The projects are getting in the way of everything else on the pulse page. I look at the projects on the home page. I am on page 3 of the pulse and have about 8 forum topics. At least there are letters on the left so I can know what not to click easier. Sorry Martin, this is the first time I didn’t like what you did.
