How to get notified...
How do notifications work?
The notification symbol is the Bell button next to your name, top right of the screen. Its color is grey when you don't have any notification, and orange when you have a new one.
When you click on the bell button, it opens the notifications page.
There, you can see all the changes made to the tasks you are following or assigned to you.
Notifications include the following information:
If it's a notification or a tag
the name of the author
the related entity
the related task
the new status
the attached file
and the comment.
When you click on the notification page, the comments panel on the right is displayed. You can answer directly from this page to any element.
Each part is a link you can use it to jump on the information you need. If you click on the status, you jump to the status page of the entity. So you can react quickly to this new change.
For example, let's give Ann a retake.
Ann receives notification immediately, the bell button changes color , and she can read the new comment.
All the notifications and comments appear in real-time. No need to refresh to stay up to date.
