Smart semi-permanent history

A little like this suggestion here:

http://www.awasu.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=417

but with logic.

This is probably a big request / idea and perhaps one you have had already, or even it's a feature I've not found yet(!)

Could the pop-up alerts to new messages be watched for those I click. The words in the ones I click be added to a db and after a pattern has begun to form, could Awasu keep for me, all feeds that conform to ones I would *usually* have opened, if I had been at my screen at the time. A sort of "While you were away" list. For example, I'm interested in Canada as I'm moving there, and pretty much all ballons that mention Canada that I see, I click - the db would have a relatively high frequency for the word "Canada" and hence future ballons with that word that I didn't click would be auto added to this "While you were away" list.

This would be a sort of smart, auto 'in box'. It is a partial step back towards an email client (shudder! lets not go there), but I am certain it would be a killer feature - I am SURE I must miss hundreds of alerts that I would be interested in.

Actually, we've already designed a lot of this monitoring-the-users'-actions-to-figure-out-what-they-are-interested-in kind thing into Awasu already but none of it has been activated yet since we've been really busy working on more mundane features :-) :roll: :whip:

However, we will be adding search channels very shortly that will let you monitor search results as a channel. This will let you keep tabs on incoming content that is of interest.

Brilliant :D
Given the care and depth of Awasu already, I am not surprised to hear you are on this already.

I sympathise with the mundane stuff demands. Wouldn't it be nice if that stuff did itself..? (sigh).

I bet that "search results as a channel" will become a 'hot' feature for Awasu :) Good luck with the mundane and exciting work.
