    Thank you for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

    ORCID has a feature for clients which have been permission by an individual to read trusted party data on that ORCID record to subscribe and receive an alert whenever that ORCID record is updated. They can then update their own systems' databases with the data from the ORCID record. These are called webhooks, and you can read more about them here:

    On the user interface, this does not come fully under our goals at present, so we will mark this as declined. This is because ORCID is not a profiling system or social network -- other organisations which are already integrated with ORCID provide those services, and they provide them quite well. Rather, we are a registry of unique, persistent identifiers for individuals -- the ORCID iD -- as well as a hub for connecting researchers with their output and affiliations, as well as exchanging identifiers for persons (e.g. ORCID iD, ResearcherID, Scopus Author ID), organisations (e.g. Fundref ID, Ringgold ID), and things (e.g. DOI, ISBN).

    Warm regards,
    ORCID Community Engagement and Support
