In my Salesforce org, each users' default frequency for email notification for Chatter groups is set to daily and I need to change this to "on each post". This can be done individually, however I would like to be able to change this for several users in one go. Additionally, I need to change the email notification settings for certain groups to "email on each post", is that possible?

I think you can do this using a dataloader update on the user object, I'm pretty sure the field you want is "DefaultGroupNotificationFrequency" with the options:

  • Email on each post
  • Daily digests
  • Weekly digests
  • Never
  • P for Email every Post D for Daily W for Weekly Digest N for Never

  • @Girbot what about Default to disable User.UserPreferencesDisableAllFeedsEmail (Receives Emails) is there a way?
