Chatter daily email digest - Updates from users I follow?

I have set up chatter daily email digests in Salesforce.


I followed few records, and setup feed tracking fields. If any updates are made to that records, I am getting them in my daily email digest.  This is fine.  Every day I get emails of different records with the changes.


I have also followed few users in Salesforce.  But when these users make any updates/any changes to any records (which I am not following), I do not get those updates in the daily digest email.  When I follow a user, I expect all his updates to come to me in the daily digest email.  That's the whole point of following users. 


How do I set up this? I couldn't find any such setting.  Please help.



Chatter will only give you feed updates for records or groups that you are following.  If you are following a user, then any posts he creates or updates to that user profile will go into your stream, but you are not automatically following every opportunity, account, or lead that user touches.  At least, this is not the way the feature is designed to work out of the box, as far as I know.


There are some free apps that you may want to check out.  They could provide a solution for you.


From the App Exchange (free)


Chatter Auto Follow: Allows users to automatically follow Leads, Opportunities, and Cases in Chatter based on rule criteria defined. Or set up your own custom swarms that are triggered by Chatter posts

  *You may be able to extended and customized the code in this app using Apex to fit whatever use case you want.


Chatter Unfollow Rules: Set up automated rules that determine when users should stop following records. Each night, Rules remove everyone following the records that meet your criteria.
