Notifications allow you to keep up to date on important developments in your Workstream workspace. Whether that's a stakeholder submitting a new ticket, or seeing a roundup of your environment trends, with notifications you are always in the loop.

Delivery Methods

To configure your notifications, click on your workspace name in the left nav, and navigate to "Settings". Then select "My notifications".

You have two options for how to receive notifications, email and Slack. You can turn on one or both, but we require at least one delivery method to be active so that you can keep updated on workspace activity.

Please note: If the Slack option is grayed out like it is in the screenshot below, then you have not yet connected Slack to your Workstream account.

You can click the link to begin connecting Slack in order to enable this option. You can also connect Slack at any time by navigating to "My connected apps" from the settings page.
