I have come across many questions that I want to know answer of to. But All I do is favourite the question. So I want to make a suggestion to the community to add a feature that would notify me about any new answers added to the questions. So that I don't have to check the question every day from my favorites page.

I think this would be more efficient and productive! Please present your opinion. :D

This was proposed about 5 years ago on Meta Stack Exchange1:

Adding Favorites to the Stack Exchange global inbox

I think if you follow this list of related/duplicate questions, the story is that this was implemented at one point, but people actually hated the idea and they removed the feature. I somewhat doubt it'll come back, despite the continued requests for it.


It was probably actually asked on Meta Stack Overflow before MSE was created, but that's neither here nor there

We have a favorite feature for questions already.

Below the voting arrows on a question you'll see a star icon (this is on the full site, the mobile app does not have this interface). That is the control for the favorite feature.

Access to your favorited questions is found in your profile.

We use RSS for following.

Questions, tags and users all have RSS feeds at the bottom right of the layout in the full site (again, the mobile app is more limited).
