Get notified

Get notified helps you to:

  • do not miss important information
  • prioritize conversations that matter
  • not to be disturbed (by deactivating all notifications)

How to manage notifications?

In your profile settings select  notification settings and choose your preferences. It’s useful to check noisy for messages containing your username and display name – you get notified when someone mentions you and the messages that mention your name are highlighted.

Keyword notifications.

You can get notified when someone mentions a topic that’s important for you. For that, just enter keywords in the notification settings window. Select the noisy option to easily find the message containing your keywords in the conversation flow.

By the way, if you want to be notified when someone mentions another team member, just add his username as a keyword.

Room notification options.

You can set a different notification option for every conversation room.
Select the room in the left menu and click on  notification options icon.
Let’s say you don’t want to be disturbed by the conversations of the selected room. All you have to do is to click on none icon.
If you only want to get notified when someone mentions your name or your keywords, check mentions & keywords icon.

To be mentioned or to mention someone.

This is very helpful for large teams.
When many team members engage in the same conversation it is very easy to omit a message.
It’s useful when you want to assign a task to someone and be sure that the person has received your message.

By default, you notify a member by mentioning his displayed name, or his user name. You don’t need any prefix for the mention to work.
Likewise, when someone mentions your name, you’ll get the notification.
