Todoist private thread notifications


I replied in a thread that was later changed to private. I can no longer access the thread, but I still receive e-mail notifications of it.

I don't mind the e-mail notifications; I just wanted to let someone know about the issue.

Link to thread: Todoist.com/Support/showQuestion/8065/#comment_26075

To be clear:
1: I found the thread, read it, and noticed someone mentioned the thread was private.
2: I replied "this thread is not private"
3: Someone replied again and stated the thread now is private.
4: I received e-mail notification about the message that the thread is now private.
5: I cannot access the thread using the URL in the e-mail; I assume that the URL is correct but since the thread is private, I cannot access it.
6: I was expecting not to receive e-mail notifications from a thread that is private which I cannot access.

Hello Toby,

A notification is send to anyone who participates within a thread. That said, the moment it becomes private, everyone who posted something in it will be notified.

We will review this as we'll update our support and help sections soon. Thank you for letting us know.

Best regards,
