This article summarizes the key types of notifications available as well as how to manage your notification preferences.

Change what you are notified about

By default, your notification settings are set to notify you about important events and all client activity. You can adjust these settings as needed at any time by visiting your notification settings. Here's what each setting does:

  1. Don't send me any notifications: We won't send you any notifications to phone or email. You can always check the notification bell in the upper right to see everything that's new for you.

  2. Notify me when something important happens: We'll send you notifications for important activities.

    • Important events include: When you are invited to a new project, a Task is assigned to you, someone @mentions you in a comment or a chat message, or a new Daily Log is posted.

    • Client activity: By default, you will be notified about all client activity, just to make sure you don't miss anything. However, you can choose to only be notified when the client @mentions you in a comment or chat message instead.

  3. Notify me about everything: Use this setting if you want to get notified of all important activity, including all Pro Team and client chat messages, and all new comments.

Change how you receive notifications

You can receive notifications via email and/or mobile push notifications. Simply select the methods you prefer on the Notification Settings page.

Note: To keep your inbox from overflowing, chat message notifications are only sent via mobile push, not via email.
