Notification settings

Everyone can specify their preferences for receiving notifications. That includes which events you are notified about, and how you are notified. There are also some  suggested settings for various roles within an organisation.


Setup your notification preferences

Your notification preferences are accessed via the Settings option which is shown after clicking the Notification Bell icon.

The Edit Settings page includes the various activity groups that you can set your notifications for. It is totally up to you to determine what you would like to be notified of, and how you would like to be notified.

You may have different notification setting for different events. For example, you may want to get an email notification if your leave request has been approved or declined, an in-app notification if a new project has been created in your office, and no notifications for invoice payments.

You can subscribe to any of the notifications but will only receive notifications for things you have access to within Projectworks.
