How can I change my notification settings? When, where, and why do I receive notifications?
How are notifications organized?
Notifications in ClickUp are organized at the Workspace level. This means notifications for all Spaces within a Workspace are grouped together on your notifications page.
How will I know when I have a new notification?
A purple dot will appear over the Notifications Bell when you have a new notification:
If you're viewing a different tab, new notifications will be indicated on your ClickUp browser tab with a small red dot.
If you have notifications in a different Workspace, you will see a blue indicator dot on the Workspace name in the menu behind your avatar.
Other ways to check you notifications
- Mobile - push notifications for new activity
- Email - set exactly what triggers email notifications
- Browser - desktop notifications for new activity (Chrome and Firefox only)
What can you do with notifications?
To clear notifications, click the bell icon on the right side of a notification. It's important to check in-app notifications each day in order to stay organized and let your teammates know you're on top of your work.
Clearing notifications will move the items into your 'Cleared' tab, where you can access all items you've cleared already.
2. Watch (or stop watching) tasks
If you're getting annoyed with notifications about a certain task, click the 'Eye' icon to stop watching a task. You'll no longer receive notifications for that task.
Alternatively, you also can start watching a task by clicking the 'Eye' icon from its gray color state.
Eye icon colors:
- Gray: You are not watching the task
- Purple: You're watching the task currently
3. Shared tasks
You'll receive an email and/or in-app notification if something (such as a List, Task, or Folder) is shared with you. To adjust these notifications, simply remove the check in your notification settings.
Note: Likes for comments in your tasks will be grouped together in one single notification to help clear some clutter.
Our Slack Integration also allows users to receive notifications directly in Slack channels. Learn more here!
