Hello nightingale1, If you go to your Edit Preferences screen (accessed from the top right hand menu on the browser version of Tapestry) you will be able to change this setting: On the original version of Tapestry, you will need to edit the section "Key Children". On the updated version of Tapestry, you will need to edit the section "Notifications". You can also apply the page filter on the observations screen to view observations with relative replies/comments (the wording changes depending on the version you use!), and narrow this down further by "author" and/or by date (using the "added" section of the filter), and/or by "group/child". Hope this helps!
