Blog Comment Notifications? - Possible?

Aloha I recently opened a new shopify store KonaHenna.com

We have enabled comments on our Blog, pending approval of each comment.

I find myself checking the admin way too often to see if any comments need approval to be seen.

Is there any way to create an email notification when comments are awaiting approval?

If this can't currently be done - SHOPIFY PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN! - I need my sanity back! ;)

thanks for any help!

Would love to know the answer to this also.  I've missed some interaction with clients.

Hey guys, you need to subscribe to that private feed: https://yourshopname.myshopify.com/admin/comments.atom?status=unapproved You can set up your feed reader to update you via email, so you will get an email whenever there's a new comment to approve.

If anyone's catching this in their search results - I've posted a free tutorial on how to get this done here:

Hi Aloha,

I've spoken to a number of merchants frustrated by this problem. I've created an app that addresses it as best as possible. 

The app:

- sends you an email notification for each comment

- lets you approve or delete the comment from the email

- you can reply to the email to post a new comment

- you see the commenter's email address.

I was hoping to make it free but it was a fair bit of work in the end so there is small monthly charge.

You can check it out here: https://apps.shopify.com/blog-comment-manager

Hope it helps!

Jon
