In the website we're building after users log in we redirect them to their "Organization" page. We have a new feature that allows two users to connect. Many users seem to ignore incoming connection requests, probably because they can't see them or they don't know exactly what they are.
My colleague came up with this idea: if there's a pending connection request the users get redirected to the "Connections" page, if there are not pending connection requests users get redirected to the "Organization" page like before.
It seems to me that this can confuse our users since they see different pages when they log in and they might not know why.
Is it acceptable to do such a thing? What are better approaches?
