When you get your whole team into Podio, it's likely that you'll have a lot going on in each of your workspaces. You'll want to be sure to set up your notification settings properly to ensure that you don't miss any important updates, and also to prevent notification overload. This way, you will only receive updates for the things you need to know about.
Podio will automatically subscribe you to notifications for the following:
- Workspaces you've created
- Apps that you've created.
- App items that you've created
- App items that you've edited or commented on
- Tasks that are assigned to you
- Tasks that you have assigned or have commented on
Here is a video tutorial for managing notifications:
Unsubscribing from notifications
You may not want to receive notifications for each of these things, and for this reason you have the option to unsubscribe from any type of notification. Just look for the notification icon next to the thing you'd like to unsubscribe from, and click it to prevent further notifications.
Pro tip: You can also unsubscribe from any type of notification straight from your notifications page.
Subscribing to notifications
If there is something you'd like to receive notifications for that you're not already following, you can opt to follow it. Look for the same notification icon shown above, and click on it to follow that area. When the icon shows green, it means you are subscribed to those notifications.
Note: If you'd like to follow a workspace, scroll to the bottom of the workspace activity stream, and click "Follow" from there.
Remember that you can also customize your email notifications to choose what types of Podio notifications will be sent to you via email.
