Overview

The notifications panel is a place to quickly view or set notifications for the project in which you are a team member. If you have new notifications, the number of notifications is displayed on the notifications icon in red. Click on the Notifications icon to view your notifications. It displays notifications from the last three months in chronological order.

You can set notifications to be received on various important events in a project. For example, you can set a notification mail to be sent for every new workitem assigned to you. A mail will be sent to your registered email ID, based on the frequency set in the plan, when an event takes place in the selected project.
