I'm coding a trigger for "FeedItem" to automatically add a mention to a certain user.

I'm following pretty much the same logic stated here (by adding a new mention segment to the feed input):


When calling ConnectAPI.updateFeedElement from the trigger, the mention is successfully added; however for some weird reason the mentioned user receives 2 email notifications instead of one.

If the same logic is applied outside of a trigger (running from anonymous for example) the user receives only 1 notification.

Any ideas?

    I'm seeing this in an "after insert" FeedItem trigger too. I think that both the insert and the update are causing email notifications to be sent. I work at Salesforce and am checking with the team to see what we can do. If you need to contact support, please reference work record W-2840463. – alouie Nov 24 '15 at 21:49

    @alouie I've already opened a case (12798629), it seems like a Salesforce bug. Will update here with the findings. Thank you – jonathanwiesel Nov 25 '15 at 8:33
  • @alouie was there ever an update on this issue? I'm also seeing this exact issue. – John_Henry Oct 19 '16 at 16:02

    @John_Yankee, unfortunately there wasn't a fix. – alouie Oct 20 '16 at 22:15
