Always stay up-to-date by receiving notifications from your shared projects. Whether it's someone adding a comment, assigning a task, completing a task, or joining/leaving the project.

You can customize which events you’ll be notified about and whether you want to receive them by email or push notification in your account settings.

Types of sharing notifications

There are several types of actions that people can take in a shared project. You can decide which ones you want to be notified about:

  • Comments attached to me: When someone has chosen to notify you about a task comment.
  • Tasks assigned to me: When someone has assigned you a task.
  • Tasks completed: When a task that you’ve either created or assigned is completed.
  • Tasks uncompleted: When a task that you’ve either created or assigned is uncompleted.
  • Collaborator joined project: When someone accepts your invitation to join a project.
  • Collaborator declined invitation to project: When someone declines your invitation to join a project.
  • Collaborator left project: When someone leaves a project that you’re a part of.
  • Collaborator removed from project: When someone removes another member from a project.
