I&#39;ve seen a few people ask for notification of new courses/groups. Is there a way we could implement a &quot;hack&quot; for Ali (doesn&#39;t need to be very nice - just to make sure she can keep track)? Alternatively, if there is a way to get this information from the django admin interface, that could also work for now.<div>

<br></div><div>I believe there is a lighthouse ticket already for a more robust implementation.<div><br></div><div>P<br><br><div class="gmail_quote">---------- Forwarded message ----------<br>From: <b class="gmail_sendername">Alison Jean Cole</b> <span dir="ltr">&lt;<a href="mailto:alisonjean.cole@gmail.com">alisonjean.cole@gmail.com</a>&gt;</span><br>

<br>Also, I would love an email like Jessica&#39;s recommendation to go out, but in return I&#39;d LOVE to receive notifications about new study groups being created first. I like to personalize emails to new organizers sometimes if I see something particularly interesting/notable right away.<br>
