Stay Informed with Notifications and Activity Feed

Applies to

Resource Management

Email Notifications and the Activity Feed help you stay informed about what’s going on with your projects and people.

Notifications can help you:

  • Stay current on the status of your assignments or tasks.

  • Know if a project you’re tracking has any changes.

  • Get the rundown on what’s happened during the day.

The Activity Feed aggregates these important changes and displays them in a historical timeline on each project page and on your Personal Page.

Email Notifications

Email Notifications mail you about important changes to your assignments or projects you’re interested in. Notifications are smartly aggregated, meaning if you make multiple changes close together, they're all sent in one email to reduce inbox noise. You can also choose to receive a daily digest of the day’s activity.

  • Off: No email notifications. You can still see changes in your Activity Feed.

  • Immediately: Notifications go out as soon as changes are made. When multiple changes occur in a short time period, they’ll be grouped and sent in one email.

  • Daily (default): You’ll receive an email each morning detailing changes made during the past 24 hours.

You can follow the projects your'e not assigned to and get updates in your personal Activity Feed. If you're set to do so, you'll also receive email notifications about project changes. .

To follow a project, select the Follow option from the Project Page, located above the Activity Feed.

By default, notifications are enabled for all projects.

If you’re resourcing or planning a tentative project and don’t want to alarm or overload your team with notifications, Administrators and Project Managers can mute notifications on the Edit Project page.
