Notifications

    A notification can be defined as an indicator that a certain event has happened. This is a fairly common feature in smartphones, applications, and websites, providing new information to the user.

    Sometimes notifications can become overwhelming, as an application can consistently send you notifications that are not worthy of your attention. In Slingshot, we definitely want to avoid that feeling, so you start with cautious notifications settings. In any case, you can always modify the settings according to your preferences.

    So, what's a Slingshot notification?

    It's an auto-generated indicator that is sent to you to let you know a certain event has happened. There are three different types of notifications, in-app, push, and email. This means that you can get a message that pops up while using Slingshot (in-app notification), a message that pops up on a mobile device (push notification), or even an email. As you can get Slingshot on any platform, tweaking those settings is important to customize your experience.

    Stay informed with notifications

    Notifications are designed to keep you updated of any changes in workspaces, tasks, messages, mentions, and dashboards. You can learn, among others, that a task was assigned to you, that you are removed from a workspace, or even that someone sent a message in a discussion thread you're following.

    You can access Notifications on the top right of the screen as shown below.

    Within the Notifications panel, you can use the Mark all as read option at the top. You can also use the overflow menu next to each notification to Mute it or Mark as Read/Unread (see the screenshot below).

    How can I change my notifications settings?

    There are three different types of notifications: in-app, push, and email.

    • In-app notifications are displayed within the app in the Notifications panel.
    • Push notifications are clickable pop-up messages displayed on your mobile or desktop screen.
    • Email notifications are delivered to the e-mail address associated with your account.

    You can change your notification settings by going to your account settings and selecting the Notifications tab. Alternatively, you can open the Notifications panel and select Settings from the overflow menu in the upper right corner (see in the screenshot below):
