How to get notified...

How notifications work?

The notification symbol is the Bell button next to your name, top right of the screen. Its color is grey Notification off when you don't have any notification, and orange Notification on 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.

Notification page

Notifications include the following information:

  • If it's a notification Notification page or a tag Notification page

  • the name of the author Notification page

  • the related entity Notification page

  • the related task Notification page

  • the new status Notification page

  • the attached file Notification page

  • and the comment.

When you click on the space of the notification, 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 Alicia a retake.
