Please help overcome the difficulty. Where is the Battery Management branch hidden?

Hello.

A few years ago, in an old forum, a group
Power Management had in its structure a Battery Management branch.
Now I do not see this thread. For this reason, it’s very inconvenient for me to track messages related only to Battery Management topics.
I am not interested in issues related to other topics from the Power Management Group.
The second difficulty: my mailbox accepts all notifications from the Power Management group. Over 50,000 letters a year. This is a lot. I have no way to read them all. It’s very difficult to quickly see headlines to see an interesting or important topic.

Please help set up the notification list and message filter correctly to view topics that apply only to Battery Management.

If this is not possible, then consider restoring the old forum structure.
Return the Battery Management branch back.

Respectfully to the forum team.

Vladimir.

  • Vladimir,

    Thank you for using TI's E2E support forums and your feedback.

    About a year and a half ago, we consolidated our forums based on feedback from many users.  The Battery forum was collapsed into the current Power forum at this time.

    We will note your feedback, but based on inputs from many other users, I have to be honest and say it is unlikely that we will break out our forums to the degree they were split in the past.

    We do have a way for you to leverage tags to get more info, I've asked a member of my team to explain that in a reply later today.

    Hi Vladimir,

    As  indicated there is a way to drill down within the Power Management forum using tags. On the forum landing page, click the gear icon right beside the sort order chooser and from the popup menu choose the word Tags:

    This will display the highest level of tags used in the forum.  Most of these are automatically added when a part number exists in  a thread:

    At this point, click the part number of interest and the forum will refresh and display all of the forum posts that have that part number tag as well as a subset of tags found on those threads.  You can continue to click additional tags from the subset to further refine the threads displayed.  Note that a breadcrumb of tag names will be displayed to enable easy navigation back to a higher tag level:

    I hope this helps to find the information you're interested in.

    Thank you and your team for quickly responding to incoming questions.
    I also thank you for your honesty and directness.
    It is very sad that the restoration of the previous structure is unlikely, probably I will just have to come to terms with this.

    The list of actions that William recommended, I tried to do a very long time ago. I could not configure a convenient algorithm for reading a new forum. Please explain to me which tags I should indicate in order to see messages related to Battery Management (all chips, all topics, all messages), but not to see messages about chargers and other devices not related to my interest.
    I’ll deal with setting up email notifications later, as I’m scared to open my mailbox, which, as I said earlier, a huge stream of letters from your forum falls daily.

    I admit honestly - spam from all over the world came to my mail much less than it comes from your notification server.

    Vladimir.

    Hi Vladimir,

    I'm sorry that there isn't a fine grained way to follow specific parts.  Your best bet is to remain subscribed to the Power Management forum.  The majority of our Battery Management parts begin with the letters BQ so another way to stay abreast of activity around Battery Management is to perform a search on the letters BQ.  You will find some non Battery Management results, but the majority will be Battery Management specific.   Another good source of Battery Management information is the Power Management technical articles found here https://e2e.ti.com/blogs_/b/powerhouse.

    Hello William

    Thank you for your search advice.

    Yes, it’s possible to use the "BQ" filter, it’s a little not convenient, because necessary to specify the sort order.

    As far as I can trust such a filter - time will tell  )) .

    My best wishes to you and your team for the New Year!

    Vladimir.
