Notifications are certainly the most important feature of a good project management system. And the bigger the project, the more vital the notifications become. We all need to be notified if a co-worker completes a task we were working on or if someone adds a comment. On the other hand, there are a lot of things we don’t need or want to be notified of. This is why Producteev provides smart notifications on Android, Mac, iPhone and Web. Here are seven best practices to be more efficient with notifications:
1/ Be selective. We give you the choice not to overload your mailbox. Go to your settings and set the events you want to receive notifications for.
2/ Pick and choose workspaces. Not all projects are of equal importance. Choose the workspaces that are highest priority to be notified about via email.
3/ Select the right email. We all have multiple emails addresses (personal and work). Choose the appropriate email for the project notifications in your settings.
4/ Unfollow tasks you are not interested in anymore. Notifications are sent for tasks you are involved in. If you are the creator or the assignee of a task, your will receive all the notifications. To stop those click on “unfollow” in the task detail panel.
5/ Follow priority tasks. An easy way to stay up-to-date on an important task is to follow it.
Have a Producteev week!
