Is there any way to get some kind of notification when a product has been updated?  I just wasted almost 70 download resets to check for file updates, and that’s just for my Genesis products!  I definately don’t want to have to go through all of that for the rest of my purchases.  That’s hundreds of products!

A simple “last updated” column in the Itemized Order History would be the most ideal option, but even a simple, automated e-mail notification would work too.

Please DAZ, help your customers keep up-to-date with product updates by LETTING US KNOW!!!

Yeah, this really annoys me too. The only reason I knew Hitomi had been updated, for instance, was because I was following that particular forum post carefully. Otherwise nothing… for instance, I lodged a support ticket to state that the Braxton for M5 product didn’t display correctly for me (the various morphs do not have icons, just the DAZ grey logo) and while I did have a response stating that it was a glitch they were aware of, I have no idea whether it has been updated or not!

An additional column would be fine.
An email notification would be perfect.

Add me to the list. Email would be the best way to do it, with a last updated column as a back-up.

I actually think the last updated column is more valuable than the email because its too easy to miss an email. I want the data in one location, the email alert is a nice to have but I think the updated column is mandatory. Hopefully they still have all the data from the last site…

Ditto’ng this — I’d like an email notification too, but a column in the Itemized Order History with the last-updated date would be more useful to me in the long run.  And once DAZ restores the ability to sort by Order Date, including a sort by last-updated date would be great!

IIRC when Daz moves to zips and the new installer, that will keep track of ur content and inform you of any updates smile

Yes, but there still needs to be a method for those who don’t use the Install Manager to know about updates.

There should already have been a method for update notificatiuon, that’s the whole point.  I don’t want to spend hours resetting purchases to see what’s been updated, I want to work on bringing the ideas banging around in my head to life!
